Sick, you told me you were getting an RX-7 then never showed me anything, lmao.
OT: rusty shitbox is rusty shitbox. But it's probably the easiest "project" I've had in awhile. Took less than $300 to get it running, and now I'm just waiting on a brake caliper and drum hardware kits to show up.
And literally a constant fight over the spring/summer, my not-so-rusty yet equally as shit, shitbox MK1 Rabbit/Golf
I started in 2011 with the Green 2005 379. My dad had the grey 2003 379. pretty well identical trucks.
In 2014 I sold it and went to FedEd. In 2015 I bought his 2003 379 and he built the glider.
In 2017 I leased a w900 with Scotlynn. I left after a few months cause they were fucked. I came back and drove the glider for about 8 months while my dad drove the 379. In December we switched back to our own trucks.
A week ago, after I've checked the oil, I've discovered my car has an oil pan leak. It's not a big deal, the job is pretty straight forward (drop the pan, reseal and the job is done), however, I didn't have the sealant compound in my hand, so I've decided to leave the job for the next weekend (this past one). I've decided to top off the oil until I've got the job done, since I have to use my car every day to commute in my work and my school (easly 150 km per week day).
Tuesday, after I've finished my work, I've took the highway and after ~40 km, the oil pressure lamp came on. Fortunadely, an exit was just around the curb, so I took it until I can find a parking spot nearby. After that, I've shut the engine off, check the oil, it was half full. Even after I've topped off the oil, the pressure was still low. Called a local towing company to tow my trusty car. I didn't sleep well this night.
My guess: the oil pump and the oil pump chain is completely shot (the turbocharger also suffered). Maybe I will repair it and turn it into a racecar or something.
This is the best car I've owned, and I was so pleased with this car that I've decided to buy an another one. Pictures coming soon.
