    Power steering fluid leak after hard hit on highway

    I’ve done a search on the topic and read several good threads - however most were years old and I could use some insight right now. If what I think happened is confirmed I’ll simply have the mods delete this thread. My wife and I were coming home from the Maryland eastern shore yesterday in my...

    Hard start after heavy rain

    So this problem only pops up after really heavy rain storms. After a hard downpour the car has a really hard time starting. It takes almost 30s to start if it starts at all. Wiggling the ecu connection and trying again and it fires instantly. I've noticed the windshield cowl is warped due to...
