>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?

heat and friction are what break down oil
so naturally extreme heat can break down oil even faster, as its only designed to operate in a certain temperature range

Shit, so how badly did I fuck up the engine?

Was I riding with the equivalent of water in my engine?

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.

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.

Starter motor?

My old man had to replace his starter motor on his Berlingo, started fine some time and other times didn't start.

I dont know much about engines, but logically it sounds reasonable.
what controls that? is that a computer or a mechanical part?

SOHC?

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.

Hey /o/,

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?

No over-engineered flat-4 in my mr2 please

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

Good suspension would turn a mr2 from a miata-tier to nearly elise tier.

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?

River road, on just over the border on the PA side.

Mountain roads are always the most fun. They just give the feeling of adventure.
2nd best is night city driving.
Dead last is the highway zzzz.

>>17888241
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

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.
