      It was the thermostat! Old one was very stiff and definitely wasn't opening fully. Thanks for the tip!

      I did not change the thermostat, and that's something I'll do in the morning. The temp gauge seems to jump up quick when first starting out, and I'm guessing that it's stuck in a semi-open position....
    3. Lots of Miata gurus here. Mine seems to run VERY hot on the highway...

      Basically... This pic is top down, heat turned to full on to keep it cool (It'll go considerably higher if off... Haven't tested my luck), 92 degree day, A/C off:

    5. Bathroom extravaganza! Two almost full gut/redos of a master and guest bath...

      I've been sought by a family member to do a full reno of both her bathrooms in her "get away from NJ" condo in Florida. I normally work in very old homes, and having a modern structure with level...

      And an obligatory pic of the car, sitting on the beach in Daytona yesterday... Amazing how tiny it is compared to a modern Camry.

      Thanks to everyone for the insight! I've had her order the FM kit and have recommended the other items (plugs/wires, trans and diff fluids, etc.), which will be done as well.

      Any DIYs on the...

      I won't be doing cam seals or anything, but the VCG is doable. Is there a recommended "kit" for a timing belt change that includes all the goodies I need?

      Stock NB Miata maintenance...

      To preface... I'd never driven a Miata before today. Say what you will about it being a TCL darling, but all I have to offer is love. I've driven Z3s, M Coupes, S2Ks... And nothing really felt as...

      Yeah, more I read this seems like the issue. Any idea what that tool is? The back lower screw looks like a pain in the ass to get to.
    12. Any 302 gurus here? Got a Crown Vic that's dying randomly

      88 Crown Vic 5.0, randomly stalls (dies), just like if you shut the key off. Wait a minute or 3, and it'll restart just fine. Started...

      So GM is better about picking transmissions that will last. History dictates this as well.



      I don't think those numbers will play out in the real world. Even if they did, I'd rather have the...

      Put the ****ing phone down when you're driving. If you can't manage to not hit someone in a drive through, it's only a matter of time before you slam into someone on the open road.

      And yes... You...

      Heh... MM3 was asking me about which dog dishes to get, and thought to myself "he should ask that hubcap guy with the B-Body wagons on TCL", but I couldn't remember your name. :)
