I tried it and i been told that too when i went to UTI for automotive tech. That spraying water in the tb will help clean carbon build up cuz water will turn into steam.

As long as you don't pump it in with a garden hose or something, I can't see it causing any problems. Works for carburetors (open carb) and diesels too.

10F outside, hand washed and waxed my car. Washing off the ice was hard, and I felt really stupid when my neighbors came outside and watched without saying anything

But when I got home from work tonight I saw salt crusted on the hood, so it had to be done. The automatic wash I use every 2 days just isn't cutting it. Everyone knows a handjob after a shower makes things better


One day I'll own a camera that isn't on a 7 year old phone

Lmfao, yeah, I had to go at it until it shone like chrome. One day I'll actually clean my car when it's light outside. Not sure why 90% of the times I've hand washed it have been after midnight, as has the body work I did

Today I'd like to demonstrate the proper use of a heated touchless car wash in -10c

Step 1: Get out the cleaning supplies and do it yourself

Hahaha, if you lived around here, I probably would

I'm still running the chrome rims with summers, so I clean them every couple days. As an expression of how bad the traction on corners with them gets, I have to tighten my E brake cable from using it so much. Takes 11 clicks now to not roll away in my driveway instead of the 6 or so it used to

LonzBera has a spectacular aura about
Did a lazy wash! Then a light polish/finishing polish/paint seal on the hood/fenders cause i'm to lazy to do the whole car. I took it to the dealership to get a TPMS sensor programmed a while back & I didn't think they were going to wash it, and they did. It looked like they scrubbed the hood with steel wool.

Knock on wood, I haven't got stuck in the snow yet with my GT. Stock suspension and decent winter rubber (Toyo Observes). Quick question: when the traction control cuts power, am I supposed to hold the gas down or ease off? Paranoid of stalling.

it wont stall, unless your going 2 mph lol, you can just ease off a bit or just let off the gas. either way your car will not stall unless your not going fast enough, if that was the case just push the clutch in. I do not drive my eclipse in the winter, but it is pretty much the same scenario with any car that has traction control.

By the way this spring or summer, we gonna finally meet up at the Napierville Dragway? lol

When I'm trying to pull out of a snowy parking spot and am spinning the tires, I'm essentially not moving at all. If the drive wheels stop, the engine will too. My instinct is to give it more throttle when the traction control kicks in because I want to prevent the stall (this is the first car I've owned that has this feature), however, this has no effect since the TC is calling the shots. It's all very unsettling and I still don't know the proper procedure. In dry conditions I drive without it.

Yeah, I'm down to give it a go. Hopefully I'll have some parts by then and at least be somewhat competitive lol

i guess you just got to get the feel for it on what is best, with my grand am GT, i keep the TC off most of the time in heavy snow, because when the TC kicks in, it sucks ass lol, it cuts out so much power that the damn car could not even get out of its own way if it wanted to lol

Yeah, I don't much care for it either, but I decided to give it a fair shake and see what it can do. I don't generally like driving aids as I like to stay in as much control of my car as possible. ABS is a godsend though, too often I had to pump the brakes in my old car to keep from from plowing into parked cars or charging through icy intersections lol

Being in control of your car can be the difference between living and dying. The computer doesn't know when you need to have wheel spin to maneuver around something. I still wish mine had TC though (because then it'd be a GT... It's gonna hurt to sell mine and buy a GT if one comes up)

At least the ABS on the car is mild. If you're into it you can still lock the wheels

I agree. Technology these days has gone too far to the point where we have cameras to check our blindspots for us, because turning your head 90 is such a hassle you know. It may be making our lives easier, but it's doing nothing to hone our driving skills. These aids are there to curb our shitty driving, but that in turn makes us worse, so the tech has to get more advanced to compensate. It's a vicious cycle that in the end will turn us into nothing more than passengers. The computer will probably set the temperature and tell us what radio station to listen to as well.

When the ABS kicks in, it sounds like someone's pouring gravel down a garbage shoot. Unsettling if you're not expecting it lol

Hahaha, 100% yes. The first time ABS wanted to kick in when I was letting out of the clutch was terrible. Does anyone know how that one physically works? Does it just grind our clutch plate?

The Eclipse is definitely a good learning tool for how to change lanes. Shoulder check... Look through the tiny window... Pull ahead a bit, make sure nobody is in your tiny window still... Lol

There is one that I saw that is freaky. Lambos have a recovery system in them that controls braking to each wheel independently and also auto corrects steering. So in the event that your lambo goes out of control, let go to the wheel, feet off the pedals.

Lamborghini, what happened to them? It used to be a car for men with balls of tempered steel that would rip your head off if you made the slightest mistake. Now your grandma can drive it, who's blind in one eye and has that milky film in the other. Sure they have more power/features/etc, but they've been so watered down to me it's sad.

The Countache was one big rolling blind spot. Zero viability, cable clutch that weighed as much as a horse, AC that breathed through a straw, cockpit always smelled of gasoline, you had to pay $7500 for a stereo, and was about as comfortable as a bed of hot coal and about as easy to drive too. But damn it was cool. Getting one around a track made you a god. Unfortunately for us, the age of the analog supercar are long over. The Maclaren F1 was the last of the breed, and there will never be a finer example of a true driver's car than that imho.

Ferrari has been making versions of their cars for the last 5 years or so that come WITHOUT the electronic aids turned up AS HIGH. They're seen as knife edge racers, which I can approve of. Porsche are also not very forgiving

On the topic of what we did to our cars today... I tightened my E Brake cable. Super easy, if anyone has any issues PM me

Also moved my aux cable from the cup holder to coming out of the center console storage box thing

Also found that on the GS the wire for the 12v outlet to the box in the center console IS ran, it just doesn't have the plug there hahaha. Gonna steal that power feed for my project

How do you tighten the E-brake cable? I use mine religiously and it could use an adjustment.

Also, anyone else hold down the button when pulling it up? That ratcheting sound can't be good for the components.

I always hold the button. Hate the sound with a passion


Are you familiar with removing the paneling from the stereo back to the storage box? It all just pops out, but I can take some pictures and explain it in detail if you need. Once it's all out you can reach through the storage box (the floor pops out, push straight up from under it) and turn a nut on it which tightens the cable. I removed all but a little slack so that the brake doesn't drag while driving.

I could make a guide even if people want

Yeah, a how-to would be much appreciated.

I gave a ladyfriend a crash course on manual driving in a grocery store parking lot at 1am. She slipped the clutch and bucked the car a few times, but otherwise did well for her first time. I did a burnout before we left, painted a nice 11 all the way to the exit ramp lol

Ran some dude in an Acura onto the shoulder today. If only there was some way he could signal his intent to merge, maybe I would've let him in.

Until such a device is invented, I guess people will just have to learn to go offroading. Driving back from school just now my buddy and I were following tightly and some guy tried to merge into where I was (I was the following car at this time). I actually slammed on the brakes so he wouldn't hit me, then he backed off. I accelerated hard to catch up to my friend again, and the dude tailgated me the whole way back (couldn't see his license plate, that's how close). Thank god I drive a manual. I may or may not have downshifted to second just below the redline speed from an idling engine

finally took my baby in to have my rear view mirror looked at, its not been right since i bought her back in 2010. the lights only work if you wiggle the wires just right. after inspection we determined that it would cost almost $500 to fix the issue. i decided its not all that important right now, so unless someone has a spare mirror (i already asked the part-out people on here) i will let the issue lie in wait until i feel like spending money to fix it.

For a lot less than $500 you can run a wire to whatever the hell kind of light you want inside that mirror

Well it's not the mirror isn't it? The connector is the problem, or the whole thing is just trash. It's happened to everyone including me.

Got hit by chunks of someone's engine block on the highway today driving home.

Gave her a ride to town, told her not to worry about the damage (I already fixed that same damn spot in the fall. Oh well. Round 2). I enjoyed the fire show it spat down onto the road though

Just got my timing belt done today. Car had 115,000 miles. I was a little late but the mechanic told me I probably could've went another 10,000 miles. But Im glad I got it out the way. They also replaced all of the components and the tension-er. The original quote was $500. Ended up being $380.

That's a pretty good price. Was that on the GS or GT?

It was on a GS. They have been a family mechanic for years and have done a very good job on all of my previous cars. He said if I could wait for a couple of days for parts to ship he could get them cheaper than if he bought em in town. Turned out to be a lot cheaper.
