ya i never would have thought that was the case for me...it started out kinda how urs sounds and every one suggested it was a piston fixing to go,i paid them no mind cause apperantley everyone in my city are 240 expert lol even tho they all drive honda or acuras...but i let it b and one nite the car just shut off on me dead,i was confused i jumped the car thought of what i did sense i dont race or stress my car....and like i said after dewin routine troubleshooting my cuzin said fuk it im gone start tearin it apart,he said my fly wheel was split down the middle..
oh boy, didn't even think of that. The guy I bought it from told me he installed a new clutch so he could have installed the flywheel wrong and F*CKED it up! Considering when he sold the car it had a "blown strut" so I take it home and when cleaning out the trunk I find 4 little pieces of springs that had been cut, NO cat...or any flanges on the exhaust everything was cut and welded together.....he denied he had anything to do with either things..but after I gave him $$ for the car him and his buddy lugged out a huge tig welder to weld an intercooler on his friend's Evo....so I can only wonder how much shit is wrong w/ this s13..I hope you are wrong about the flywheel but right now I am fearing the worst. Thanks for the suggestion though. I will def look at it once I get this motor pulled.
