>Some Tips -
1. Always Google your question before asking.
2. Look for General Threads or other Threads that regards your question's subject. Asking in generals would give you a more defined answer.

Also, look through the thread to find unanswered questions and answer them if you can.

Have a Great Day Ahead!

I recently put a new engine in my Miata, and burped the cooling system quickly before putting it to the road. Since then I've put 1000km on the new engine, and the coolant level is still dropping, albiet very slowly. I've topped it up about 5cm back up to the low line about 3 or 4 times now.

I don't see any telltale blown head gasket white smoke on a cold start. In the morning when getting out of the city at first I can see some steam when I get off the throttle in the first 5 mins, but it's cool now so I feel like that's normal condensation.

"Reposting from old thread to get a response.

On going brake problems.

Developed a brake squeak at low speed while going straight AND turning. Had my brakes resurfaced by a company because people told me that was the problem even though I felt no pulsing. Brake company glassed the rotors.

Bout and installed new brake rotors myself. I rebuilt caliper pins, boots, pads, and clips. Only thing I couldn't do was the caliper piston seal. Everything else is gold. Greased the fuck out of everything.

First drive and two issues pop up.

First, that brake squeal is still there. New parts didn't solve anything. Took brakes a part, everything seems legit, grease still there, wtf?

Second, my front right brake feels like it is grinding rather than making smooth contact. Checked the pins, the squish properly. Still grinding.

What do I do? How do I fix these issues?


>also
In response to the dude about sanding the pads, I've done this. The problem I'm having is that it was on the old rotors with old pads and the new rotors with new pads, but just started about 1000 miles ago and is getting worse."

Yea, I threw my old pads on there that have like 70% left on them and same problem still existed. This also occurred with the last rotors with different brand pads than what I have on now with new rotors and new pads.

The squeaking is intermittent at low speed when the brake isn't pressed. Turning makes it worse. At high speed you don't hear it. Also, the pads don't make brake noise generally other than the grinding from the front right. It is only the squeaking from low speed travel."

It's not going to matter if you have these or non-XL tires, unless you need the extra weight capacity.

They're technically illegal on a federal level unless they were specifically authorized for your specific car by NHTSA. Its why a lot of aftermarket parts have 'not for highway use' or 'for offroad use' written on them.

However local cops typically don't enforce said laws as they're really only concerned with them working at all."

No they don't. A few might but they would be more expensive obviously. Usually aftermarket headunits can put out like 15 watts rms per channel I think? Been a while since I've done any of this.

You don't have to get an amp but unless you have a good ear for tone you'll hardly notice the difference between your stock speakers and good aftermarket ones. Adding an amp to the system is a gamechanger. You could get a powered subwoofer too and just keep the volume on it down to not sound like a hooligan.
To take advantage of all that you would need an aftermarket head unit. It all starts getting expensive. Best bang for your buck, on a limited budget, is probably just get an amp to power your existing speakers."

I beg to differ here. Aftermarket speakers almost always sound better than stock. I've never replaced stock speakers and thought it wasn't worthwhile. As a matter of fact, I usually changed out my deck first, then tried to convince myself the stock speakers would be alright, but that was never the case. I sure as hell wouldn't just add an amp to a totally stock system. You'd end running speaker level inputs to the amp creating a nightmare of tracking down noise. Not to mention, factory speakers are usually rated below (15w) what an aftermarket deck puts out. This is all assuming you don't have a super premium sound system, even then dealing with the proprietary shit they have going on is another nightmare."

Also I naturally stalled it a few times driving in a place with a lot of stop signs on a very steep road.

10 years on automatic and just started learning manual myself. There's one thing nobody ever fucking tells you because all of the youtube videos and blog guides were made by people who were taught to drive on manuals: throttle control is totally different. In an automatic the gas pedal controls both throttle and power. Want to go faster, you push harder on the gas. If you pay attention to your car you also associate pushing harder on the gas with shifting up a gear because it happens automatically, and letting off the gas with shifting down a gear. You also have a different throttle point for each road speed. Want to hold it at 70mph, you keep the throttle pressed down deeper than it was at 60mph, and so on. In a manual it's different. Unless you're revving it, the gas pedal really only has one point you have to hold it at. You don't need to give the gas any more pressure to drive at 70mph than you do at 20mph, because it's the gears and clutch controlling the power now. In the right gear, the engine WANTS to be traveling at the right road speed, and all you need to do is give it enough gas to overcome friction losses.

Nobody ever told me that, and I kept giving it too much gas at all the wrong points, and if I needed more power because the engine was about to stall I went for the gas pedal. I would give it too much gas when shifting up a gear, not enough gas when shifting down a gear, and keep fucking changing the amount of gas I was giving it when taking off in 1st gear. Every time I stalled I knew it was happening and tried to give it more gas, which was wrong. You give it constant, unchanging gas, and use the clutch to give it power. If you have to take off from a stop aggressively, like making a left turn to merge into traffic, you hold the gas a little deeper but still steady and unchanging, and 100% of the change in car motion between stop and fully moving is done with the clutch and the clutch alone."

All good points. If you're working with the stock stereo system that can complicate things, for example I have a car that has a built in little shitty Bose amplifier that I would have to bypass if I wanted to put my own amp in.
I think you tend to lose bass with good aftermarket speakers, but you gain the highs. They probably figure you'll have a subwoofer for the lows. If you don't have one, it can sound less full than stock speakers.
I feel that sending a strong and clean signal to shitty speakers will give better results than sending a shitty weak signal to good speakers. You can actually go a fair amount over rated power to the speakers with a good amp before blowing the speakers out, whereas just cranking up the volume from the stock stereo can blow out good speakers. That's where I was coming from, and you can always upgrade the speakers later.
Of course the best course of action would be to upgrade everything all at once but that's a lot of dough.

To the guy who posted the question: make sure impedence matches across anything you swap out. If you just upgrade the stock speakers make sure your new speakers have the same impedence (4 Ohms or whatever it may be). You can pop a speaker out and look on the back of the magnet and it will tell you."

I did start on automatic. I'm guessing the car you're driving now has a tiny anemic engine that gives 100% throttle at like 40% pedal travel otherwise I have no idea how you would come to these conclusions.
Only thing I agree with is that when I start off in 1st gear in a manual I keep the throttle fairly steady and use the clutch to modulate how fast I take off; seems to be smoother to focus on the clutch instead of the throttle."

FFS I guess I have to write a sperg novel for your dumbass.
At a standstill to properly start off in a manual, you push the clutch in and shift into first. To start moving You smoothly let the clutch out, and at the same moment you start pressing on the gas, IE your left foot should be coming up as your right foot goes down in one smooth motion; by the time you hit the bite point with your left foot, your right foot should be anywhere to 1/8 or 1/4 throttle pressed on the acclerator, this whole process should take less than a second to accomplish.
ONCE you've let the clutch pedal out you press the accelerator pedal more to about half throttle to gain decent acceleration, up to about 15 to 20 MPH.
You want a decent but not overly sharp acceleration becuase the longer you're accelerating the more fuel you're burning. The goal is to get to cruising speed and put as little throttle on but while staying in the torque band to keep you at that speed whilst not lugging the engine
So now you want to shift to second; this process is similiar to first but not quite as you're still in low gear and the engine can be jerky if not finessed: let off the accelerator, push the clutch in to shift to second, again let the clutch out, give it a little bit of throttle (~1/8) hit bite point push the acclerator to 1/4 to a half. get to about 25-35 mph.
Now shifting to third is easier. Let off accelerator, Simply push the clutch in shift to third, let clutch back out push back on the accelerator to about 1/4-1/2 after letting the clutch out, get it it to about 40 then repeat the process to 4th, and then at 50-60 mph 5th and 6th, til your at crusing speed.
If your cruising speed is at 40 -50 then its perfectly fine to shift into 5th and stay there modulating your throttle from 0 to a 1/2 to compenate for slight inclines, declines and speed differences in traffic.

If you need to sharply accelerate or you encounter a steep hill and 5th is not giving you enough torque to maintain your speed, you downshift, rev match if you want by blipping the throttle, shift it down to 4th, and if thats not enough blip the throttle again and downshift into 3rd to maintain your speed."

Yes its normal as anon >>19834011 said, the lower the gear the more amplified any mistakes will seem, that being said
you're either not smoothly using the clutch, taking too long to shift, shifting way too high in the rev range or some combination thereof


As for your hill starts it sounds like you're not comfortable with the bite point on your clutch, knowing exactly where it is will tell you exactly when you need to give it gas, but bear in mind that even on steep slopes you may chirp the tires to get enough momentum to over come the grade. The parking brake method is good for beginners but its not optimal

My suggestion is this: If you haven't already, start practicing getting the car moving without using gas at all on a flat surface; this will teach you the finesse of knowing where the bite point is, just don't use this trick long term as can and will burn your clutch, as you get better you can add gas and learn to accelerate more quickly which teaches you how to start on hills."

Yes. If he is in first and pits in, then goes back out while everyone else goes in, assuming everyone is on lap 200, he is once again in first. Several strategies include tire and fuel management to eek out 1-2 laps over a competitor before going in for a refuel or tire swap. Other strats are to go all out while someone pits in hoping to make up a couple seconds a lap over someone who may be doing a management strategy, hoping that the cost of fuel and tires will pay off."

Literally taking buying just a muffler and cat and getting and exhaust shop to do the pipe work for you will be cheaper.

The only reason to get a full exhaust kit is if your looking to actually make significant hp gains because you've maxed out the gains you can make with the engine and intake.

Otherwise all you're getting for running a new exhaust is sound improvement."

What makes you think a mazda 3 would be any differrent its the same class

My first car was a 2001 mercedes C-class which according to anyone who hasnt owned one is the most unreliable piece of shit car but in the end my friend with a "reliable" shitbox ended up paying more in repairs than I did mainly because I wrenched on my own car and I bought mainly 2nd hand parts where it could be done
Older BMWs are pretty quirky but there is so much info out there and so many totales ones that parts are like napkins
My friend had a mazda 3 from same year as the one you are looking at and he cant win this fight with his DPF filter for 2 years now it constanlty fucks with him and again he paid more in repairs for that alone than I did on my merc for a year but his car was plastic hell inside while my merc was comfy quiet and full of nice touches but I sold it for a BMW cus I wanted to go fast"

Is the clutch operated by cable or is it hydraulic? Could be a cable not adjusted correctly or a leaking/malfunctioning throwout bearing.

If it's grinding when putting it in reverse then it means the gears are still spinning when she tries to engage the gear, which shouldn't be happening.
So either she waits too little between pressing the clutch and engaging reverse (thus giving no time to all the things inside the gearbox to stop spinning) or the clutch doesn't disengage completely, which would explain both the grinding and the difficulty in shifting all other gears.

It doesn't matter if the bite point is right at the top of the pedal travel if pedal travel is then too little to completely separate the clutch from the flywheel.

Try to adjust the cable if it's cable-operated or try to bleed it if it's hydraulic, while also looking under the gearbox bellhousing to find leaks."

Let's say you put it in high gear at low RPM, then floor it. It accelerates slowly until it reaches, let's say, 3800 RPM, and then you feel a surge of power. That's your boost threshold.

Now let's say you're cruising on the highway and downshift to third gear, which puts the engine at 5000 RPM (or whatever). You put your foot down, there's a brief delay, and then the car takes off like a rocket. That's your transient response. The transient response is typically faster at higher RPM.

The two effects are semi-related, but not the same thing. People call both of them "turbo lag"."

>Are coilovers and other hard suspensions actually as bad and rough as people claim?
If you mean aftermarket adjustable coil over kits, if the springs and dampers are properly sized for your vehicle then the ride and handling will improve. Not sure what you mean by 'hard suspensions'. Biggest problem I see is someone will put 450lb/in springs on their stock shitbox that originally had ~200lb/in spring, then they slam it with the adjustable ride height(compressing the spring) and wonder why the car rides like shit. As it now has effectively 600+lb/in springs in a vehicle that may only way 2400lbs.
>I've only ever driven my truck which is only shocks up front and leaf springs in the back and I've never felt like it was anything bad at all. Does it get much worse?
Are you wondering if coil spring suspensions are worse than leaf springs?
That's a big difference in ride quality. Leaf springs are the springs but also the locating devices and suspension links for the rear. This makes the rear leaf springs a bit firmer than they need to be, it also makes the rear suspension not as compliant. With a truck the rear leafs are going to have higher than needed rate for an empty truck as the truck is designed to haul a load. Unladen the truck will feel 'over' sprung and bouncy.
As for 'worse'. The worst riding suspensions are going to be solid(live) axle suspensions. Parallel leaf springs < coil spring suspension(un-parallel four link < parallel five link < three link(torque arm)).
These suspensions can actually be made worse by using the incorrect bushing type to replace factory rubber bushing. Along with cheap or incorrectly valves dampers(shocks) for a given spring."

>When are you "supposed" to feel turbo lag?
Ideally, never. Lag is from incorrectly sized turbo for a given engine. Or a rather large turbo on a 'race'(drag) car may have lag in the lower rpm range. But in any car built within the past 20years there should be no 'lag'. Back in the day there was lag but that had more to do with compliance in the system. Nothing like a turbocharged carb'd engine to make you go WTF. You could usually 'drive around' the problem by simply downshifting getting the turbos spooling and then re-upshift to get the car into 'bewst' quicker. But some cars were just shit from the factory *cough*Maserati Biturbo*cough*.
>One guy says only when you're going 60mph and floor it to pass someone, another says when you're launching from idle.
It really depends on the vehicle design and load on the engine. A modern 'turbo' engine should not feel/react that much different from a naturally aspirated engine.
Now if you upshift early and lug the engine you can create lag by not allowing the turbos to spool up. But most factory stock modern engines will not suffer from 'lag' during normal driving/correct shifting."

Is this a manual? If so, I'd take a look at the shifter linkage bushings, otherwise it'll be a synchro. You can fix it if you really want to; it's probably $150 in parts and $600 in labor if you don't do it yourself. New fluid and better shifting technique (time your upshifts so the engine speed matches wheel speed in the new gear) can mask the issue if it's synchro, but it's not going to undo the wear.

Go with a (0 or 5)w(30 or 40) synthetic, instead. It will start lubricating sooner and keep lubricating longer than the 10w30 basic bitch oil your old shitbox was specced for. I like Rotella T6 for my cars, but it's high in ZDDP (an extreme pressure lubricant), which will chew up your cats if you still have them. If that's an issue for you, I'd recommend German Castrol (I think it's a 5w40 now? Look for the "European Formula" label on the bottle). But really, anything marketed as full synthetic is going to be good enough to keep your car together for a million billion miles if you keep up on your maintenance. Even Walmart's house brand synthetic is pretty damn good.

If you take the air cleaner off and open the throttle by hand, do you see a healthy squirt of fuel going into the venturis?

Is it a mechanical or vacuum secondary carb? Try having a friend stomp on it in neutral and see if a) the secondaries open correctly, and b) it looks like there's fuel flowing through them. If not, you may be looking at a clog somewhere in the secondary side of the carb.

After that you'll need to look at fuel mixture (remember, both lean and rich can cause bogging), fuel supply (are your pump, filter, and lines up to spec?), and ignition system (unlikely if you weren't having problems before, but failing coils/ignitors can cause symptoms like that)."

Tapered wheel bearings? How is it from 60-63? 63-65? Worse? Same?
Check for slop at 12 & 6, if there is rocking and it is not from sloppy BJs then your wheel bearings may be a bit sloppy and need adjustment, finger tight adjustment, snug it up til the slop is gone. Better to be a tad tighter than loose.
If the bearings are sealed but are mounted to a spindle or have a CV axle through them, try loosening and re-tightening the stub axle nut. Go for a drive, if the wheel noise is reduced then the bearing had slop in it and is worn out.
If there is no stub axle or spindle through the bearing and is a bolt on hub assembly(GM 3 or 4 bolt style) then there is no way to adjust and the bearing simply needs to be replaced."

low material shouldnt cause very little braking power, most likely either the booster or the master cylinder are dicked"

"Not driven manual before but looking at buying a shitbox to learn in have a question about shifting.
I've seen things about rev matching and maintaining revs to have efficient gear changes.
But I've been watching some how to videos on YouTube and they haven't mentioned anything about revs when shifting.
They demonstrate driving and shifting up a gear.

What happens if you take your foot off the accelerator and the revs drop while your changing gear?
Like if you were slow to change or having trouble finding for example third when shifting from second."

Nothing would happen. You'd shift into a higher gear with a lower rev then.
Worst case scenario (but you'd have to really try to get that) is that you stall the engine. But that'd require you to upshift 5 gears or so. And even then you could just floor it or kick the clutch back in to prevent that."

to be honest you dont need to worry about this for a while, what matters is just that you practice it for a while and you'll intuitively figure shit out pretty fast. you're gonna fuck up going from neutral to first a bunch before you get it so just practice that first in an isolated area. do like 100 stops to neutral then start. shifting other gears is not hard at all and you will do it very quickly."

How Inisharu:D does it have to be? As far as cars actually featured in the show, the Miata is going to be the cheapest, followed by probably an S13. If you just want to hoon around in a nipmobile, look at an old Lexus SC or LS. They're cheap as fuck, RWD, come with the great 1UZ or 2JZ engines depending on the model, are comfy as fuck (which also means lots of low-hanging fruit for weight reduction), and have a pretty decent aftermarket. The SC is actually built on the same platform as the Supra, so Supra suspension and other bits will bolt right on.

>>19845922
Offset is the distance of the wheel mounting face from the center of the rim. You can find the offset of a wheel by measuring its width and dividing by two, then putting a straight edge across the inside rim and measuring down to the mounting face. The offset will be the distance you measure, minus half the width of the rim, in millimeters. A higher offset will move your tires in toward the car (risking clearance issues with the dampers and inner fenders), while a lower offset will move the tires outward (risking clearance issues with the fender itself and just sticking out and looking dumb). It's generally better to err on the side of too high offset than too low, since you can always shim them out with wheel spacers if necessary.>>19845542
>What happens if you take your foot off the accelerator and the revs drop while your changing gear?
This is actually what you want when upshifting. On downshifts or if you miss a gear and the revs drop to far on an upshift, you can blip the throttle to match the RPMs, but it's not necessary in a synchronized transmission. The synchros are there to spin up (or down) the input shaft the match the speed in the new gear.
