    Honestly, it looks to me like you just knocked some gunk that was clogging up your windshield drains (hence the ice dam). The black stuff is just the pollen/leaves/dirt mixture congealed. I clean...

    I wish I could be more helpful but it kind of sounds like a loose connector somewhere.

    I chased multiple seemingly unrelated codes in an S40 only to find out that a major connector wasn’t seated...

    What makes you think it’s the throttle body? Any particular thing point you in that direction?

    FYI I bought my car and lost power on the drive home. Turned out to be the fuel rail pressure sensor.

    Without codes it’s tough to say, but you could have a bad coil. I had one go on the highway a few months back. Lost a ton of power, dash light came on, and a prominent vibration.

    Personally I just used a rivet gun my dad let me borrow. I’m not sure how I’d feel about the plastic ones given I don’t have the plastic skid plate/air guide under my car.
