I’m no stranger to strange car problems.
If something weird is going to happen to a car, there’s a good chance it’s going to happen to a car owned by someone in my family.
I had a 2004 Jaguar X-Type that wouldn’t rev past 3,000 RPM without the engine losing all power. My Grandpa had a Dodge Neon that wouldn’t run in the rain.
