1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Vital Fluid

June 30, 2010

Just checked the old Miata's oil and it was down a quart. So it seems to be using/losing a quart every 1,400 miles or so. Granted, it's got nearly 180k on the clock so I'm sure it's burning a little (though we see no smoke out the tailpipe) and Jay Kav told me it has a nasty front cam seal leak. Of course, this malady will be taken care of as we continue to improve this scrappy little go kart.
