    Brake Pedal Feeling

    Alright, I've got a new one here. Car - 2001 with 173k on the clock. I know the car needs a SWPS replaced as that code constantly shows up.

    Fueling

    Guys, Does anyone have any issues with adding gas to your cars? I've tried several stations and different brands. After 4 or so gallons, the pump clicks off. Then I must hold the nozzle up (facing down the tube). Just removing the nozzle and restarting only works for a few seconds. Strange huh?
