Well, It just started today. My car kinda Sutters in first gear looks like I need some Fuel Injector **** again to put in my gas tank.

Also.
I made a nice burn out today. probably about a 40 foot long trail of rubber. The thing is . My right tire is the one the layed down the rubber and not my left. From the start for a bout 3 feet both tires layed down rubber. after that it was just my right tire. I think I might need to do some balancing. Crap

Im getting fuel injector cleaner tommorrow Ive had this problem once before and it worked.

That's not balancing, that's the downside (one of many) of an open-differential car. Your transmission basically puts as much power as it can to the easiest wheel to turn, hence only one wheel spinning.

40 feet long. DAMN! Thats a big burn out. But yea, most front wheel drive cars are 1WD. (One wheel drive) hehe. Even high end cars like my mothers Saab 9-3 has only 1 drive wheel. My Jeep is the same way as well....thats why it should have come with posi-traction.

No, it is 2WD, it's just that it doesn't work under slip. That's why you need a limited slip differential, it distributes the torque evenly between the two drive wheels.

I won't get into the specifics of differentials right now as it would be a VERY lengthy post.

Also replace your fuel filter first. It will only cost you $10-$15 and is usually alot easier to replace an injector.

To test the injectors you can disconect the injector electical harness and then measure resistance across the injector terminals with an ohmmeter (multimeter). The resistance should be between 13-16 ohms.

It is alot easier to test them and could save you alot of money by doing this first.
