Not to be outdone by the Rover, the MX5 got some time spent on it too
As part of my usual “new car” base-line servicing, I changed the oil in the MX5 the other day.
Yet another part of the car that made me question who worked on it last. I needed to change the coolant as I did not trust what was in it.
I’d had enough of the horrible, leaky, torn and ugly soft top on the car, so it was time to pull it off.
Mismatched wing mirror paint? That just wont fly.
Its been a long week of no work on the cars, thanks to being struck down with a brutal man-flu, but today I was back at work, so used that as an excuse to say I was well enough to also work on the car again.
The more I dig into the work done on this car, the more I question the sanity and abilities of anyone that has touched it in the past.
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.
