I believe it. I left my car with my parents the last time I went to a mean place. They didn't drive it much. The first day I got back, I blew both thermostats and an overflow tank in the first 3 minutes of firing it up and attempting to take it to the car wash.

Sorry that not many people choose to become Master Kia Mechanics, next time don't buy a car based on popularity among the HIV positive community.

i don't know what i'm talking about.

nice car, throw some aircraft paint stripper on the hood, wait about 15 mins and hose it off then throw some salt on it before it dries.... instant street cred

Nice! One of the best cars I've ever driven in most respects.

So 95 makes it OBD1... Can you post an engine shot? it should have the wide runner manifold, but it's a 3.0 and not a 3.2 (I like the extra 200 cc personally WITH the wide runners)

Did you check the subframe areas for cracks? Does the shifter feel like it needs bushings?

1. vanos seals - how is the low end? If shitty you need 'em.
2. get that thing programmed so it pulls all the way to 7,300-7,500
3. be ready for a slew of small things like battery, radiator, etc - it's almost 20 years old.
4. Good CAI is worth it with a custom program, exhaust not so much

Dat straight six sound... i like to imagine I'm an ME109 about to gun down some allies when I'm next to a concrete divider at part throttle under load conforti cai + remus muffler here.

....


Jokes aside,
1. Going to look into this regardless
2. Also been looking into this
3. Radiator, battery, water pump, almost everythign cooling system-wise has very recently been replaced.
4. it has CAI. Been looking at exhausts but It really isn't in the budget right now.

Shifter only feels tough going into reverse. Not sure if its just because I'm not used to driving the car.

Also, I'll try to remember to take an engine shot tomorrow. I'm going to try to redo the headliner at some point this weekend. I've done a full detail that is almost done and the paint looks great, aside from the hood. I'll try to get some more comprehensive photos tomorrow. cheers

here's a super high quality photo. yeah, sorry about that, i didn't take this photo....

Anyways, I did a spur of the moment headliner change (it was sagging). I got the microsuede fabric at walmart for $11.50 and the glue at homedepot for $13/can x2. It took almost all day, but the reward is pretty nice. It turned out great I think...

ya know its not just about mileage, it's still an eighteen year old car.. would probably be wise to get a comprehensive inspection by a specialist.

...And then ignore everything the specialist tells you to do, and just remove the parts he tells you to fix. It'll be an improvement.

That picture is not worth a thousand words, more like 12?

I can't imagine making my own headliner it would probably look like ass, i'd just buy one from the stealer. Good job man!

Yeah, so every car has fabric that you can touch. Between that and the metal roof, there is a cardboard, or in this case, fiberglass "mold" of the roof lines. You remove that, tear off the old fabric, and sand down the remnants of the old glue. Then you spray on some new sticky ass glue and apply whatever fabric you want. I opted for something without foam backing. I've read (and it makes sense) that when the foam meets any kind of moisture, then the glue that is behind that will deteriorate, thus making your headliner sag. So I skipped that and went with the suede.

Here are some updated pictures that don't look like ass. Sorry for the size, oh well.

You nailed why they sag IMO, it's the foam that crumbles away from the glue. Mine is original and so far no sagging.

Also I meant recovering/making whatever you want to call it - I feel like id screw it up somehow and there'd be wrinkles
