That's an extremely good guess. :o :D I forgot about the ride height thing. 3 of those were on my list, one more small thing that is not brakes, wheels or exhaust.

10 points to Brian!

Bahaha. I had to take those covers off, too much caster adjustment made it rub. Mmmmm door sills, but you can't see these on the drawing. Haha, what clearcoat? I've polished right through the single stage coat so I now have shiny primer. :roll:
That brake dust, I'm hoping this drawing never sees it!

I'll give you 8 points for effort. :wink:

So I have neglected this poor thing over the last 8-9 months, only feeding it fuel and oil. Driving it every day to get me to work and back home. Building a house really takes over. :lol:

Then one day you realize there is far more oil dripping off the engine than there used to be.
Oil patches.jpeg
That never used to be this big....
Oily cross member.jpeg
Oh you dirty thing!
Oily muffler.jpeg
And this is really bad. Oil all over the muffler from it flying off the sump.

So I think I need to do some oil seal replacement as I neglected to do this when I put the engine in last time. Serves me right for not doing it then.

And this morning he refused to start. I have a feeling it's a fuel pump based on how it tried to start. Cranked, fired, gave up on life. Attempted to start again and just cranked. Took out a spark plug and it was dry. EFI fuse was fine. I'll do some more testing when I get home to determine what I need to fix. It's been so reliable over the last while. Don't neglect your MR2 or it will make your life hard...
