RuebenX, this guy needs your help

I think you can fix his car:
Ford Fiesta 1997 losing power going uphill and making a noise like chewbacca when starting it?

True, but in the auto world I don't see Wakka-Wakka as being all that much different from Chewbacca.

I suspect RuebenX's talents extend well beyond just fixing cars that sound like Fozzie.

Wakawakwaka!

LOL... I do have very good wakawaka skills, or so I've been told.

The auto in question clearly needs to be set on fire and quickly extinguished. I've confirmed this method work very well on Ford models. However, please read carefully and keep in mind that we are talking about a Ford Fiesta losing power when going up hill and *not* about some other equipment unable to get up during a fiesta... for those please consult your physician, pfiezer might have something.
