Need some help/advice guys. On my drive to work this morning (after a few slow miles and before I got on the highway), I got a yellow light warning today warning "engine hot, drive moderately". This was the second time in a week I got the warning after a few slow miles after a cold start. Also, this may or may not be related, but I've noticed the past few times when I eject the key that something has continued to run for about 10 seconds afterwards.


Anyone able to help me scan error codes? I work in Southfield and live in Royal Oak. I ordered the Schwaben scan tool from ECS this morning, but won't have it for several days. I want to see if the codes will tell me what it is (from my research, likely thermostat or water pump).

Any other recommendations on how I should approach? I'm going to check the coolant level before I leave work today. Also, I've researched DIY for thermostat/water pump and considering this option (~$500 parts) vs dealership or indy >$1k.

The e93 is out of the garage for the spring/summer and still need to register the new battery. I was going to buy icarly but see they now charge annually which is annoying. Anyone nearby that could help out? I work in northville/plymouth - live bloomfield twp.

Thanks!

Sure sounds like its the water pump... I'd check your coolant level asap. DIY isn't that bad but can take a little time (I've only done it once).

Thanks. Checked the coolant level and it's just about up to the "max" level on the yellow marker (i had to research how to read, as i expected something that floated rather than being fixed within the reservoir). So I'll drive home slow tonight and see if i can borrow a car until i get the code reader

I might, but I really need the time to install Flex Fuel and diff brace.
Well see how my night goes.

Yeah, I got stuck doing the Flex Fuel install. She pulls like a freight train now.

I am in Waterford.

Hey everyone. New to the forum. I'm in the Grand Rapids and would like to get out to some shows. I just discovered this MI forum, and glad that I did! Anyone have suggestions of where I should go to have coilovers installed? I've never done real suspension work before and don't exactly have the time or tools to do it..

I used to live in Waterford. Out in KZoo now. Also to above, let me know where you are thinking of going for coilovers as I would love to do mine also.

This is a square setup, correct? Also, these are relatively wide and do not fit stock sport suspension, correct? I would prefer to put my Pilot Sports on the wheels, but don't think they would fit.

Itís only two wheels/tires. Itís a perfect setup for drag racing. The Hoosier drag radials make a huge difference. Just swap your DD rear wheels/tires for these and you can launch hard.

They fit stock suspension no problem.

Sorry, I overlooked the drag setup portion.

This seems to be quite true. Very few of us remain. I'm next... Who knows what's around the corner.

I can't wait to see what's in store for you next!
