    Gas or Maintenance

    Ive always put 91 chevron in my STI. I bought into the whole techron is good for your car thing. Anyway, my car doesnt seem to idle extremely well. Its not really bad but its not smooth either. Im wondering if its my gas that isnt too good or if maybe i should take my car in and get my injectors cleaned or new spark plugs... What are peoples thoughts?

    How many miles on it? It's probably not the gas unless you got some really terrible stuff.

    Or are you just describing the normal Suby shaky idle?

    Chevron is not bad, but Unicoal 76 is better.

    who knows....dirty plugs? dirty air filter? cold air intake?

    I think he's describing the boxer shake. The car does "pulsate" at times during idle. It's the nature of the beast with the H design and the firing order.

    Well its not like it shakes the whole time. Just once in a while it kinda gets rough for a second then kinda goes bakc to normal. Kinda like pings i guess. (no cold air intake and not new, but clean air filter)
