    i get sputtering and bucking right now, but it's a misfiring issue.

    you only have to burp it until the level of coolant stops going down, btw.

    ya turns out it was my fuel pump that was going out. the dealer told me that it wouldnt be accident related and when i told they guy at the body shop where my car was at, he exclaimed BS! and he went and "rattled their cage" and got it coverd by the insurance and i love him for it.
