    May have something to do with the fact that my car is a manual?

    Well, on my way to work today my Mirage finally threw a check engine light. I was hoping to make it to 200,000 without one! The car had been down on power for the last week or so, but had not...

    Damn, a shop did that? Whomever it was at this shop that tried to loosen this tension bolt without hitting it with some Kroil or WD-40 first should reconsider their career choice.:rolleyes:

    I think here in the States the last fullsize pickup offered with a manual was the 2019 Ram 2500, but you had to order the Cummins to get it. Last time I built a Taco on Toyota's website the 6-speed...

    I'd guess it is because Ford does not want you using this Ford-Escape-with-a-vestigial-bed for real pickup truck jobs, and they don't want to undercut sales of their more profitable...

    Boy, ain't that the truth. How about another thread on what the perfect oil/filter combination is for the Mirage which will result in ZERO engine wear over a million miles? :rolleyes:

    I think Doug Demuro's channel is the automotive equivalent of a YouTube channel where a woman shops for purses.

    He doesn't know much about cars...he just knows what purses he likes and dislikes....

    I started carrying a socket set in my Mirage once it hit about 100,000 miles. I have only ever used it on other people's cars.

    You might consider these. The SP10 was the OEM tire on the Gen 1 Toyota Prius. I ordered a set a week or two ago and am waiting to put them on.

    Rear seats that fold flat and front seats that recline all the way down with the headrests removed is 'magic'? Boy, that is some kinda marketing! :rolleyes:

    Wow. Six-year-old cars that every critic loved to hate with 50k miles are now selling for 100% of what they cost new.

    It is a mad, mad, mad world!:rolleyes:

    Certainly possible, but I am not sure I ever heard him mention any sloppiness in the shifter? With the miles he had it must have been worn. I am not sure it would specifically affect 1st and 2nd,...

    It certainly might prolong the life of your shifter. But replacing the shifter is a snap....literally. There are four bolts holding it down and everything else snaps in or clips on.

    Manual transmission: Worn out shifter!

    Well, after 174,000 miles of in-town delivery driving my shifter had become quite sloppy. There was a good inch of lateral play at the shift knob in every gear, and about half an inch of...

    Well, I just replaced the rear drums on my car with used ones. The old ones were worse than I thought.

    This is the driver's side. I estimate it has about 130,000 miles on it (donor car had 41k...

    Don't do it. These cars are not meant for towing. Mirages don't have the engines, transmissions, tires, brakes, or suspensions to tow something that is 50% of the vehicle's weight.

    My biggest problem with Demuro is he completely lacks perspective. Yes, a 1992 Geo Metro convertible is slow. But so were most cars in the early 1990s.

    It is easy to rip on a 1992 Geo Metro when...

    Service life on the plugs is 105,000 miles according to Mitsubishi, but doing them at 76k can't really hurt. Iridium plugs are amazing!

    I did mine at 97k, and honestly they didn't look like they...

    Factory inside diameter for the rear drums is 180mm...service limit is only 181mm. Clearly there is not much room for turning these on a lathe. The damage would have to be very minor, I think?
