The MX5 is still running rich, and I’m still not happy. Without ODB2 though, or any proper diagnostic system, it’s time to bust out the multimeter and get probing.
There isn’t a much greater, simple pleasure in life than doing an Italian Tune Up on a car.
Since obtaining the car its been running very rich, pouring carbon out of the exhaust and blowing plumes of black smoke. Today I had a look to see if I could fix it.
Well I guess this will set the tone for the rest of what I will find in the car.
I’ll blame watching far too much Wheeler Dealers for this one.
Finally hit a major milestone in the Roadster today. 200,000km.
Still running fantastic, no signs of any issues and has aged really well. Goes to show how little mileage actually matters.
On another note, the cleaned leather looks and feels great now too. The steering wheel is really nice to hold, and doesn’t leave my hands feeling gross after use.
So, today was both gross and great. I decided it was HUMAN FILTH removal day.
Went back into the garage this morning, and finished what I started yesterday.
