No it would be approximately the same because a V6 is a smaller motor and would have to work hard to move the heavy car. the V8 is a bigger motor however it doesn't take as much power as the V6 to move the same amount of weight.
well, at least tall enough to drive the car.
Have your local auto parts store read the code(s) to determine which cylinder has the misfire.

Normally you need to do right shoulder checks for right turns, but not left checks before left turns.When you turn right, there are crosswalks and other areas where there may be bikes and pedestrians to the right of you, that may be hiding in your blind spot.
Thus, if you leave the car on while pumping the gas, the static electricity will get disturbed which may cause an explosion in the filling station.Also, even if your engine is off, keep it out of the run mode, because that activates the fuel pump to run which is probably located inside your gas t...

Where I live it is 30 minutes before sunset and 30 minutes before sunrise that you are supposed to have your headlights turned on.
You should position your car in the right hand lane or as close to the right side of the road as is reasonable.I agree, some drivers turn left before they turn right or turn right before they turn left, that's a no-no.
