I have a date with a nice girl tonight. I was going to fix up the Miata properly since I had a rattle on my heat shield. It was broken in 3 places. Also I had mold on the ventilation system so I would do a little clean up with Lysol, re-greasing the driveshaft and a full car wash.
Now with this removed I thought, sweet no more rattles anymore. Nope. Turns out that the cat is rattling and I got it changed right before this summer! All I hope is that it's a rock that is lodged between the cat and the heat shield...also my check engine came back! Dammit!
