>no v8 option
It seemed so promising
Now it leaves me with little hope that they might make a v8 coupe
The competition doesn't offer a V8. Except the C63 which MB will eventually make it into Bi Turbo V6 in the future. Hopefully Genesis releases an N Spec of the G70. I bet that'll compete like hell with the M3 and the Qudrofoglio.
I recently had an overheating scare when the previous owner didn't bleed the coolant properly, the needle moved to the red zone while idling, I turned off the car and limped home with the heater on full blast.
Did my compression test and it was 200 across the board so the engine was okay, and bled my coolant.
What I didn't do until last night was change my oil for a good 500km after the overheating incident.
The engine felt sluggish and sounded little rough, the oil was black when I changed it. After I changed it, the engine sounded smooth and felt very Good, smooth.
I was wondering if the extreme heat rendered my oil useless enough to damage my engine? Severely reduce engine life?
Probably not as bad as you think. Engines can take a lot more abuse than you think.
The most common issue with overheating is warping the head which causes the headgasket to lose its seal. If that happens you're fucked. Otherwise you'll be fine. Id to an engine flush just to be safe, but if you can see white smoke or fluid leaking from the head, i wouldnt worry to much about it.
With all of that said, you definitely reduced the life of your engine but its impossible to tell how much.
Sending a sample of the oil that was overheated to a lab for analysis would be the only way to get a clue.
What even became of this kid? Did he ever get caught for lying to his dad and the insurance company?
what ever happened to this kid? I haven't seem him or his chicken around recently.
have a problem with my old Citroen Xsara (year:1999)
it has a hard time to start the engine after a short drive.
there is no issue to start it if the car has been standing a week, but after that I can just drive to the gas station (about 10 min) and it will be very hard to start it again.
there is battery, the start engine turns and turns for abut 15 seconds, until the car actually starts.
another thing that might be related to that is that sometimes the engine revs up to about 2000-3000 rpm when rolling without being in gear.
very annoying and it's and old car, not wort investing millions in it.
a pic of the engine.
>Could be too much fuel so that it's flooded when you try and start it up, which would also explain the random revs.
I dont know much about engines, but logically it sounds reasonable.
what controls that? is that a computer or a mechanical part?
Would you drive a mid-engined UTE?
ITT: cars driven exclusively by high school dicklet vapelord beaners
>Older subaru impreza (not WRX or STI)
>Shitbox skylines (Australian so they're not as rare or exclusive as in America)
>poverty-tier BMW/Mercedes that have 200000km+ on the clock and probably cost less than $5k
>lowered commodores with shitty ebay rims
Fuck, this gave me a boner
>3cyl 1.5l turbocharged
TFW I will be too old to care when engines of this calibre will be available for the consumer market
>implying they won't be bankrupt in the next 2-4 years
So when /o/ spouts the 3k Civic meme, they're referring to the EK D Series Civic right? Or is it any branch of 90's Civic.
I have about $20,000 saved up already, and want to buy a good pony car over the next 3 months. However, I am not really a drag racer and have to commute to work.
What would you reccomend would be a good car? The Dodge SXT, Chevy Camaro or the Mustang?
Which are easier to maintain?
what would you like to see in the soon to be 4th gen mr2?
>no over design
>no pig fat
>4u base engine
plz no flat 4
put a inline 4 in almost all of them. turbo 4 as a special option. If it is as big as the sw20, 300hp camry v6 as a madman option. probably no space for that if it is zzw30 sized
simple, light, precise. all it really needs
>TFW $3500 buys you a rusty 160k miata
>TFW hardtops not included
At what point will Miatafags stop with this bullshit?
Where do you all like to drive just for fun?
The roads near where I live (NJ next to Philly) are pretty terrible, and lack curves. Are there any good ones I'm missing?
Also, I'm thinking about taking a trip to the Tail of the Dragon or Blue Ridge Parkway. Have any of y'all been there? Are they any good?
Mirin' American mountain roads
Country B-roads in the UK are good cause the limit is 60mph but you can't go a mile without reaching residential areas, running into cyclists or areas with no corner visibility
What is your opinion of Jay Leno's Garage? Not the show, but the actual car collection in it and the man who collects them.
The perfect car doesnt exi-
I fucked a fat Irish girl in one of these when I lived in Montana. Comfy as fuck, plenty of room, the rear springs held really well under our combined weight of probably 600. One of the most enthusiastic lays Ive ever had. I still expect to see her everytime one of these passes me.
But I dont think Id own one consumer reports show they get to be exspensive to fix.
What the fuck is up with subaru's, are the engines haunted or something because all I've ever heard about them is something bad about boxters, but I don't actually know any hard facts about them.
