my shop does oil change for 109.00 (parts alone cost $85)

i need coils, valve cover gasket, CAB's, fuel filter, clean ICV, clean TB.

just disconnect the relay for the AE's those things freak me out. and remove the power wire. (w/o welding anything)

Might also mean your oil level sensor is dead. If your dip stick says you have enough and it comes on for a few secs (yellow) then goes off at start.
