Re: What's wrong with your car?

O/s strut top mount suspect,
Rear engine mount cr*p,
Exhaust rubber mounts worn so the middle box keep hitting the heat shield.

Re: What's wrong with your car?

Brakes squeak (Think it's missing anti-rattle shims)
Brakes feel spongy (have new m/cylinder to fit)
Leak from oil cooler
1st is too short
5th is too short
Speedo only goes to 120
