So what's wrong with your car right now?

Post by glasswars » Wed Feb 07, 2007 4:58 pm

As Opi, 01rtgurl and I were going over our cars problems I thought this would be a good idea for a thread. So I'll start:

1. Primer on rear bumper.
2. Paint fading under doors.
3. 34729734938 Rock chips.
4. Drilled holes from the license plate. (Whole car needs a respray.)
5. Wind noise increases dramatically over 60 MPH, can feel the air coming through bottom of front passenger door.
6. Bald/flat spot on tire from having to stop short rumbles.
7. Bent rim. All rims presentally have rash.
8. Holes from old spoiler.
9. Alignment.

I think thats about it. Now fess up, what's wrong with your car?

Right now, not much at all:

1.) Clunk noise from front suspension again. Not sure if it's in the rack/rack mount, or I busted another strut bearing (after I replaced them both last summer :roll: ). Everything else is mint so that's all that's all that's left. It's as solid and planted as can be on the highway though. Just annoying. Will see what's up when I swap the coilovers on.
2.) Rear main leak. No biggie, doesn't drip much at all, but needs to be changed eventually.
3.) Throw out bearing noisy when cold. Works mint, just noisy until it warms up. Will get around to this, the rear main, and probably a tranny fluid change in the summer.
4.) My 2.0i16V badge fell off. Will fix that and paint up the flaking lettering in the summer.

Other than that everything works fine. Sounds like a diesel when you first start it up, but other than that everything works and runs great.

Black R/T:

1. Small bubble in the paint on the front bumper that ticks me off :evil:
2. Tiny spot of clear coat is chipped off the CF trunk but it's not very noticeable.
3. Sideskirts need to be resprayed as well from rocks hitting them from normal driving.

White R/T:

1. Needs a new steering rack or passenger tie rod end.
2. Needs rear bumper painted
3. Front bumper needs to be repainted better and sanded down some
4. Lube up the rear sway bar
5. Make attachment point for the vacuum line bracket
6. Tighten up bolt for exhaust where the midpipe bolts up to the downpipe.
7. Needs an alignment.

That might be it right now :-?

My interior is near mint, minus one little scratch on the bezel below the cluster. But, I'll be switching that out with my g/fs soon enough.

There is no food, drink, smoking, or that allowed in my car.

Inside needs a good sweeping/shampooing
^Seats do as well
Fix how I mounted my gauge pod
Replace LCA bushings
Replace front hubs & knuckles
Give the suspension a once over and make sure everything is ok
Change steering wheel
Fix Airbag light
Move battery to the trunk
Wire up export taillights
straighten muffler
buy two new sets of tires
Re-run some wires and re-wiring my deck
Replace fogged headlights
remove trunk carpet
replace taillight seals

I'm sure there's probably more...

1.) I fried my multi-function switch SOOO long ago. I took it apart to look at it, broke the piece that holds it on. It's melted along with the piece it goes into.
2.) 03 tails on a 01 bumper--nuff said.
3.) The bottom half of my bumper was black, I painted it rattlecan red and actually managed to get some red on my license plate, and you can't tell what county I'm from
4.) Everytime I leave in the morning I think my windshield is going to fall out. It makes weird noises in the cold.
5.) I can't shift in the cold b/c my boot is rock hard.
6.) My car on the pass. side in the cold under 2k slight acceleration sounds like it wants to vibrate itself apart (you should HEAR it!! I think you can hear it outside!)
7.) I'm missing my R/T sideskirts, so I have that clear red tape (for taillights) over each of the holes.
8.) I peeled off some of the clearcoat on my front bumper when I tried to remove those gay flame graphics. Missing clearcoat in the shape of a flame.
9.) My driver side foglight hole is FUBARed bc I attempted to fit the foglight scoop in... with a dremel.
10.) My headlights have a nice clear part where I used to have eyelids, the rest of the lense is "aging".
11.) I'm pretty sure my tranny mount is busted.
12.) My AF/X header hits the tunnel. (I did hammer it.)
13.) My foglight "indicator" is on whenever the headlights are on b/c of the fried multifunction. I no longer HAVE fogs (I took both pairs out and broke both--I had 2 bumpers, R/T and SXT).
14.) I have a really nice door dent because a friend decided to "toss" me a walky talky. It didn't make it.
15.) I have rubber plugs in my spoiler holes.
16.) My exhaust melted the R/T bumper. The tips are wider b/c it's an SRT exhaust.
17.) My car leaks. Taillights, sunroof.
18.) It's going lean above 5k and I'm not sure why.
19.) The check engine light is intermittent, for the lack of a downstream O2 sensor. I have the AF/X-R.
20.) The butterflies aren't hooked up correctly, neither is the VAFC.
21.) The k-member I put on was FAR more rusted than my original, which I had taken care of.
22.) My exhaust hits the tunnel and vibrates and it's ungodly horrible.
23.) My exhaust is way too low and will drag on EVERYTHING when the car is lowered, see #22 for reason why I can't tuck it up. Damn 3".
24.) My core support is bent to hell. So much that I never got to install my traction bars bc the main bar wouldn't go into the channel.
25.) The whole underneath of my car is scraped/dented from lowering + Ohio.
26.) My passenger side parking light LED keeps going out. It's been out for at least a year. I don't want to spend $17 on another set of LED's.
27.) I only have mesh in the main grills of the car, not the foglights. Looks weird. See #9.
28.) I have a ghetto-rigged engine coolant overflow tank because the AF/X Long tube took that space.... it's ziptied to my battery.
29.) On cold days, my battery light will come on sitting at a light with the heat going and lights on. Under drive pulley is to blame.
30.) For some reason, the Neon burns more oil than the Miata with more mileage. I'll easily be low a half-quart to a quart each month. It's not leaking it (that I know).
31.) The interior pieces I painted are now chipping.
32.) You know where your back seat "clicks" into place on the bottom? My little black rubber plug gave it's life up somewhere along the lines and I think that's where some of the water is coming from. Dunno where that thing went!
33.) My Mopar Stage II coilovers (rear) are blown. Sooo that's $1400 down the drain. Riding stock now.
34.) My steering wheel is all funky. It's like the leather got all stretched out. It's not cool at all.
35.) My driver side tweeter is dying. It's all crackely.
36.) Where I had the Razzi side skirts, somehow the clearcoat is starting to peel there. Unsure how that happened.
37.) My lame attempt at "rolling the fender" in the driver side rear (with pliers to clear the 35mm offset 5Zigens) is now rusting. Even though I put paint on it. Ohio winters > paint.

That's all I can think of. Is that enough? I'm sure there's more!

edit: :oh noes!: theres more i forgot:
38.) I've had the front suspension clunk for so long, I'm forgetting about it. No clue what it is, I had replaced the whole k-member, struts, tie rods, ball joints, axles, even the hub and bearing. HAS to be the rack. That's the only choice now.
39.) Dad spilled coffee in the back seat way back when it was new. I can still see it.
40.) I went through a spell where the car would mysteriously lock itself. Since then I always take the keys out. You could HEAR it lock, unlock, lock.... weirdness.
41.) The AEM foghorns when provoked (warm weather).
42.) Currently, I can't use my windshield squirters. They've been frozen for a week. So using the wipers smears the crap on the windshield.
43.) My Sirius is temporarily (for months) stashed under the pass. seat. Wires are everywhere. I had it in the trunk and a bottle of oil leaked and got on it. It still works. And it's still free :twisted:
44.) My pass. side pinch rail is splitting/rusting up near the front.
