    p5 was running great after the timing belt change, now a few weeks later I have a ton of hesitation/stuttering under throttle. No CEL is consistent. I can occasionally pull a few pending faults of misfire cylinder 1, 4, or random. Plus a p1250 now and again. Really weird and tough trying to diagnose this!
    What are you using to pull the codes?

    I'm using MSP as daily now after couple of years sitting in garage

    Spring cleaning late may sounds good

    Enjoy the ride! You working yet?
    So I tracked down the tweaks but they don't work with the version I have. It seems Mazda updated the security against a USB hack so no updates via the USB anymore. There is a hack thru the serial port but looks too complicated for me.

    Taking the Focus in for a bunch of work, wish I had a heated garage. Needs PCV, T Stat, Alternator, oil change, trans flush, wheel align

    Lol Deal. Have a safe trip down and back.

    Got all the work done on the Focus and finally tracked down an issue with an engine miss when warm, spark plug coil was bad. Replaced the bad one and engine is purring again. They are the originals so they are 14 years old with 178k on them so they don't owe me anything. Will replace the other 3 when I get the parts in.

    Some OG hats right there.

    I have 15k on the CX-5 and I already have a cracked windshield and 2 curbed wheels from avoiding debris from someone's trailer, but 54k on the company car and not a single scratch..... =/

    Hi-ya!

    An early Merry Christmas to all. And a Huyler garage project update...

    REPU...still in the shop. Every time they put it on the dyno they find a problem. Itís a wonder how I drove it for a year, and yet they canít seem to last 30 minutes without breaking something. First it was the trans, then they were having trouble with the injector connectors, now the Innovate Wideband is acting up. Canít catch a break.

    Rx7...waiting to get the motor back from my machinist friend who is fabbing up a power steering bracket and pulleys for me. He keeps saying ďsoonĒ. I hate waiting.

    MR2...back from the body shop and looking good in all itís primered glory. No more flinstone holes in the floors. The interior is back in, including some modifications I had to make to the seat brackets (if you havenít noticed, Iím tall). It almost passed inspection yesterday but they failed me on a passenger window switch. Turned out to be the driverís side switch so I had to combine the better switches between two panels to get a working pair. Going back tomorrow and she should pass. Despite failing, I put 100 miles on the car today and have a new list of things to work on. Exhaust is too loud, heater core may be clogged or perhaps thermostat is a little sticky, and brake pedal occasionally drops a little in traffic...dunno what that is, possibly need to bleed the brakes again, otherwise it could be the master cylinder. Anyway, the MR2 is very quick off the line, super nimble, and a blast on the back roads of NH.

    Nice looking car Chris. You've got a few projects on the go.

    Too funny Chris about the CX5.

    Finally got all the work done on the Focus, alt, Tstat, oil change, trany fluid change, PCV valve and hose, wheel align, replaced all the coil packs and she is ready for RallyCross in Jan. She's running like a top. Did I say I miss having a garage!!

    Finally having my girls come home for Xmas, Mary is stoked. Should be a great time.
