I think my X was sabotaged.

I'm a foreman for the company i work for and on Friday this new guy (couple months) was an hour late and decided he wanted to take an hour lunch without notifying me. I called it in to the boss and he was fired that day. He was pissed at me for getting him fired and looked like he wanted to knock my lights out. Drove home from work Friday and the truck ran fine. Didn't go out this weekend cause of the snow. (i know, poor excuse) This morning i was going to work and noticed some hesitation but no SES light came on. Figured it was bad gas or something but didn't give it too much thought. On the way home it really started chuggin and no power especially when i was coming off the gas. Stopped at an autoparts store, bought some seafoam, a new air filter, MAF cleaner and put some miracle oil in the gas. It seemed to help alot but still has a hint of hesitation left and still don't have the power i had before. I'll let it sit overnight and see how she is in the morning. If he messed with my X i'm gonna be pissed!

locking gas cap in your future? sounds to me like water or diesel in the gas maybe. only guessing though. Diesel you'd smell.

Revu will become famous soon enough
Tell me about it, I hate it when people mess with my ride! I pulled into my apartment complex not too long ago and as I was parking my lights ended up shining on this guy who was messing with the handle to my neighbor's van. I knew he wasn't the owner so I when I got out I asked him what was going on and he curtly replied, "None of your f***in business." and stormed off. The next day coincidentally I had a huge key mark from the headlights to the tail lights, and though I can't prove it I know it was him cause I caught him trying to break into someone's car.

Hope your efforts fix anything that might be going on Mike!

He could have keyed a nice F*** YOU down the drivers side of your X like someone did to mine awhile back.

Maybe run a can of seafoam through and a full tank of gas, change the filter and see what you find.
Keep us posted and a curse on all those who mess with our X's (vehicles that is)...

Yeah I would drain the gas....

That would be real shitty if he messed with your unit... hopefully it's a simple fix and just weird timing.
