Haha, exploding car would not be pretty. Thanks for clarifying this for me. I'm going to get the part ASAP, I hope it fixes my problems. I'm tired of the sporadic changes in engine speed. Not to mention last night my tach went to zero and got a check engine light.For this part I think not. The price you pay at the dealer is mostly just for insurance companies. There is a 2 year warranty from Duralast and if this part fails the car does not stop running or explode.
