HELP!!!

Heres the problem....

Im driving my car and it starts bucking. Lights act like im idling, radio shuts off, and then comes back on and drives fine. I tested my battery and alternator 2 days ago, battery was fine, alternator ran 90 at 2k rpms....HELP!


EDIT: They wont work on my car due to custom mods.

What would these custom mods be? In your sig its mostly cosmetic mods. They aren't refusing to work on it for that , are they?

they probably are denying your claim because of audio mods... they should really check to make sure it isnt something else FIRST , and they have to prove that your problems are directly related to those mods.

Dude, you need another dealership. i'm fortunate to have a dealer that likes me. i've been having minor tranny issues and when i dropped by to schedule an appointment i asked if i should remove my intake, and the guy said, "What for?" :) That was after the sales manager and as well as half the sales staff drooled all over it like two weeks ago.
