Get under it with a hack saw and chop it out, replace with straight pipe
just kidding, I'd check what PK says first. I know what you mean about driving the Fiero in the winter, First my trucks lights stopped working, then my lincoln's gas pedal got stuck wide open, so Now I'm stuck driving my 86, which has not run quite right for months (and the battery in it is shot).
Hang in there!
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
