  1. What the f....... hahaha. That would have been nice too have instead of an engine bay full of leaked dried on coolant.
  2. Took the car to the dealership for oil change and to check coolant reservoirs. Turned out to be a leaking cap on the Charge Cooler Coolant Reservoir. They said it heats up the plastic cap and makes it leak when driving. A known problem. Recommended I replace with an aluminum cap. They put some sealant on it as a temp fix.
  3. What is the back reservoir and at what level should it be? Noticed spilled coolant on the sides of the bottle and below. Was wondering if the CAI was messing with it. Also included picture of the front reservoir. I know it’s level isn’t supposed to be below 1 inch of the seam line
  4. Thanks!! It’s Kawasaki Green. It has no pearl or metallic flake. Just green.

  6. Got out with a group of awesome guys for a long drive this weekend.
  7. Update on this situation. Since this originally happened I have had no issues. Up until yesterday. It was pretty cold out so I turned on the heat and the heated seats. The heated seats automatically turned off and then a few minutes later the car lost throttle response. pulled over. Waited a few minutes with the car off and then restarted with no issues. Last time this happened the heated seats were on too. Since then I haven’t used them except for yesterday. I know it’s highly unlikely the seat heaters are doing this but that’s the only thing that’s the same. I’m going to experiment a bit more with it and see if I can replicate the problem. no check engine lights or codes.
  8. thanks guys! I appreciate it. I'll look into both. I'm a little nervous to drive the car now. Afraid it will do it while I'm pulling out into traffic.
  9. Tonight on my way home while driving down the interstate at about 75mph the car all of a sudden started to slow. Pushing in the throttle did nothing. No check engine light. I got over to the shoulder and the engine was still running but no response from the throttle. Set the parking brake. Turned the car off. Restarted it. Engine fires up but still no response. No CEL. So I turned it back off. Reset the parking brake. Restarted the car. Engine fires up. No throttle response again. No CEL still. Let it sit for about three minutes and then tried the gas pedal and it was working again. What happened?? Made it the rest of the way home with no problems. Oh. And might just be a weird coincidence but when I started the car each time the speakers all popped even though I didn’t have the radio on. Never noticed that before on startup.
  10. I had to find a solution because having my wife follow me everywhere in her Chevy Tahoe to quench my thirst whenever I felt the need arise wasn't cutting it anymore These are large/deep cupholders. I've had a bottle of Snapple and a medium drink in a regular soda cup fit with no problems or worry about tipping and I'm still pretty crappy at shifting gearsl so it's pretty rough here and there.
  11. I saw on some older posts about people using a whole slew of different ideas for cupholders. One of the most popular being one from the Miata store that slides under the floor mat. I really liked that but didn't want to spend $40 per cupholder. So, my solution was to get two of these for $7 each: Then I took a blow torch and heated up the tab and bent it around a piece of 1x4 scrap wood. Added a strip of hook fastener on the bottom of each cup and slid them under the floor mats. Passenger one is on the left side next to the center console and the drivers side is on the left side next to the door sill. Here's some pictures:
  12. I'm actually glad you asked this. I was looking at the vents the other day and saw that and wondered if there was a drain for water especially with that pipe. I'm in Memphis and its been raining in huge down pours.
  13. Woah, that orange is gorgeous!
  14. You guys are great hahaha I'm taking it this week to get clear wrap for the front end and ceramic coating done. Maybe get the front windows tinted as well. It’s hot here.
