2007 AURA XE
Default Love my Aura

Not in a sarcastic way either. Just got in a fender bender and it held up pretty well. I was going about 10-15 MPH. No interior damage. Except the spark plug fell out and it freaked me out. I got a couple codes like service traction and some other one, but right when I put the spark plug all the way in all the codes went away.

But the real reason for this post was to ask anyone if they had a front bumper for sale.

Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2007 AURA XE
Default Re: Love my Aura

I've been searching for a rear bumper myself...the best luck I've had with finding parts most of the time though, is to search salvage sites across the country. You could probably call the salvage yard and ask if they would sell you just that part, plus you can search for your color Aura instead of ending up having to get a primed bumper (if you can't find one anywhere else) and then having to get it painted. You may have better luck finding a front bumper because most of the totalled ones I've seen are rear end damage in my area...it's because I live to close to Mass

Not speakin' for him, but it's pretty obvious.
Why/how in the hell did a spark plug fall out?

Default Re: Love my Aura

I had some repair work done under the hood at a dealership and I'm assuming they didn't put it all the way in which made it loose. That's the only thing I can think of. And the impact from the accident caused the spark plug to completely fall out. Which made it seem like I might have messed up something more than the bumper.
Oh and btw, got some estimates. $600.

If the spark plug wasn't properly tightened & found it's way out, you might have another problem. The threads in the engine could be stripped. you can lose compression that way.

You have to admit, it's a pretty strange thing to have happen. Did it screw back in & tighten down?

Right after I screwed it back in my car ran perfect again. They probably didn't screw it back in tight because they wanted me to come back in and have me pay for them to "fix it."
