Exhaust leaks can cause a stall

So last week I posted about my Miata’s manifold having an exhaust leak causing a stall. Both here and at miata.net I was informed that exhaust leaks can not cause a stall. I re-torqued the exhaust manifold nuts and re-tightened the O2 sensor, which fixed the leak, and it doesn’t stall anymore.

Take that internet! You we’re wrong. HA!

So tell me Oppo, of a time your automotive theory proved right and you fixed your car when everyone told you you were wrong.


Oh, and here’s a picture of my miata staring longingly at HWY1, begging to be driven.
