So i realized my car has been guzzling a quart or so of oil about every 2 to 3 months, maybe less? I don't have blue smoke and it doesn't smell like it is burning anything. Also, there is something leaking on the ground, but I found out that it is the tranny liquid cause it was a sparkly red, which was the color that of the stuff I put in. I'm wondering where it could be going then? If someone could help me out, I would appreciate it! smile.gif

Is your valve seals and maybe piston rings. Same thing happens to me and plenty of other members. You're lucky, when I was driving 23 miles to and from work everyday, I'd go through a quart every 2 weeks. It's gotten better though.

well the good thing is that I'm putting the engine from my '97 in, but I'm thinking that I should get the valve seals and some other gaskets changed out before I drop it in. And actually it might be a lot less than 2 months cause I just remembered that my dad put another quart in last weekend. sh1t. ummmmmmmmmmm, so that was only like 3ish weeks before I first added some.

Yeah bro, it's already coming out, you might as well spend the extra money for a light rebuild. Gaskets, seals, water pump. I highly recommend it.

Yeahh, I'm definitely doing the water pump as well as the T-belt and a light rebuild. I'd rather be safe than sorry after the swap

i hate curbs!
I was on my way to school and i was almost late so i went around a car and thought i had plenty of room in between the car and the curb...
but no, my back rim hit it, and the car jumped out a little. I got to school and took a look and it wasn't that bad, but i roughed up the lip on half of the rim and the tire had a small 1/8th inch slice in it. no seams showing, thank god. the rubber is still on where the slice it cause it didn't take the whole chunk off so I might just get some black silicone or glue, put it on, and make it look like normal.

Here is what I put on my car about 2ish weeks ago now, they are CF riser blocks and they look amazing!


Those look great on there Mike, I put mine on last weekend and forgot how much of the rear mirror's view it blocks.. (had them on my old hatch few years back) you notice any difficulty seeing out the back now?

Thanks! haha I want to get a CF hood or mirrors so that they're not the only CF part on my car.
I can see out of it pretty well though lol
It's harder to see very far back into the distance, but when a car is up close I can actually see most of the car. Before I put them on it would usually cutout the headlights or the hood of a car. I've gotten use to them being on there now though!
