Turned the iginition key and heard loud boom like an m-80 going off. Smoke began pouring out from under the hood. When I opened it the engine compartment was on fire which thankfully was not too hard to put out. The intake manifold was completely blown apart. Car was a piece of $hi# anyway but at least it got me where I wanted to go. Now it is just a hunk of useless metal. After reading of others experiences with this same thing happening it seems to me that we deserve an explanation of why this would happen and a free fix. I now have no vehicle on top of being unemployed.
