    My dads old 91 chev truck did that exact same thing. #1 plug every few months witch would have beed about 5-6000 Km's. When we took the motor out to change it I took it apart to see why and the piston had alot of play in the cylinder.

    i got a list

    aftermarket harness someone put in the car, the injectors have their own fuse box they put behind the glove box.

    i broke my ashtray door, not broke but the spring came off, too lazy to fix it.

    the 2 bolts on top of the black guage bezel, the plastic is threads into is broken off so my whole guage bezel sags and rattles

    no clutch and brake pedal pads

    no map light.

    no ac

    crappy heater

    leaky rear main

    leaky water pump

    small exhaust leaks from worn header gaskets i think

    aftermarket sunroof someone put on the car. Roof is fragile and flexes easily,

    also leaks, so when it rains bad the seats get wet.

    the fabric on my driver side pulldown mirror has come off, so when i pull the mirror down the fabric falls

    no NSS so i dont need a clutch to start the car

    right fender mangles on the lip

    no fog lights

    broken door handle bezels

    no turn signals

    lights for the fog light switch and etc dont work.

    center console arm rest is crappy and sags when u put weight on it.

    power mirrors have limited movement

    speedo needs replaced or lubed. bounces eratically in cold weather

    no gas guage

    other than that its rock solid

    ouch foxfan your list sounds worse than mine.

    just to let you know, the NSS doesn't control whether the car starts with the clutch out or not, that's the clutch switch, located on the clutch pedal. the NSS is the screw-in connector on the tranny cover plate. replace your clutch switch and you'll be good.

    What's wrong with it? I have been contemplating one for a while now. This may sway my decision.

    like Just Bob said - cosmetics. Needs painting. Have the stormin' norman ram air hood and haven't had the opportunity to have it painted yet. good thing my car is white! plus i have all the parts for a major top end rebuild - heads and all - but no time to work on it! ARGH!! and worst of all - the guy two buildings down just converted his little grey Miata into a Monster Miata. Blown 302 in that damn thing. < envy > that bastard. he has more parts than i do. he even had all the body panels adjusted just to accomodate the engine. new fms crate motor woth those new z type heads and everything. that is the main thing woring with my car!!

    When the Stalker was first installed all the body lines and gap were perfect but after about 3 months one day I noticed that the gap on the Stalker was closing some toward the hood, and then 6 months later the Stalker was actually touching the hood. This was 2 yrs ago and now the Stalker has close up so much that it's actually starting to raise my hood.

    If you want to take a look here you can see what I'm talking about.

    well when i did the t5 swap, i couldnt find the plug under the dash(that connects to pedals) for the life of me so i said screw it.

    I left the screwin thing alone on the t5, i just connected the once from the side of the t5 to the plug under the car from the AOD setup. Works great, i have reverse lights but dont need the clutch, which isnt too bad.

    last 3 weeks i have had no clutch cable so when i need to move the car or take it to votech to work on it i can use the starter to get the car moving, i dont thinks its that good for it but it works in a bind.

    Broken heat core, again! (tube bent in engine install, it split the first time coolant warmed up. :(
    Worn out front bushings causing a "sloppy" front end
    The newly re-installed exhaust has to be touching the body, causing some really annoying buzzes/vibration at certain engine speeds.
    Needs a front head light kit, stockers are tired.
    Trim molding needs freshening up, and hood/door/hatch seals are shot.

    That's the short list! LOL :D

    The real question is what isnt wrong with mine, it leaks it makes some ungodly squeekin noises, leaks a few fluids, it viberates, hatch rattles, the interior isnt the greatests the idle hangs at 750-1200rpms whenever it wants to. It is paid for it is american made, is reliable as hell its paid for, and i wouldnt drive anything else.:nice:
