I have a 1993 Miata. The ac compressor kicks off and on at highway speed. I put a new dryer and compressor on it. It was already converted to 134a. The old compressor was doing the same thing before it locked up. I know it is charged up right. All my pressures read fine. Could this be the high pressure switch doing this?

They are supposed to cycle on and off. Is there a perceived problem with the frequency?

I'm not much better as far as noobs go I guess. I KNOW that I have Google at my finger tips, but Google isn't always right. I go to this page to get advice from people with experience to save me the headache of getting something wrong because the Google Gods were not in my favor. I feel bad asking my poor husband a million car questions (because he is a motorcycle guy) so I go to the car experts You need a thick skin and a sense of humor to hang with you guys LMAO

We love beer and cars too.
Cats too.
You should make an introduction thread in the newbie section.
This is a joke thread.

(Might be the wrong place to ask a question but I cant find somewhere else to do it.)

I have been a member for a while now and bought a couple things off connections here. However due to changes in plans I want to trade all my turbo parts (96-97 NA 1.8) but I do not have permission to post. How do I go about it? Anyone I need to talk to?

Hi folks. I’m a Noob from Houston. I have a stock 2005 LO MSM with 21.5K miles and a stock 2004 VR MSM with 22.2K miles. The 2005 feels the slightest bit faster. Is that normal?

A v6 Camry is faster than a stock MSM, so I wouldn't be losing sleep over it.

Default Greetings - Justin the Noob here

Hi guys, I'm Justin. I have a 1999 Miata in Emerald Green Mica - but you don't care about the color. Here's the mod list:
  • FMII Turbo kit, installed ~5k miles ago
  • ACT stage 1 clutch and 13lb flywheel
  • FM SS 3" exhaust
  • Wilwood big-brake kit
  • Koni/FM shock/spring set
  • FM bracing: strut tower, brake master cylinder, butterfly, cannon (subframe) and Paco Motorsports Strong Arms
  • Hard dog roll bar
  • Kosei 15x8s and Yokohama 205/50/15s
  • Lotus Elise seats on custom-fabricated mounts (mounted to factory sliders)
  • Nardi wheel
  • MiataRoadster shifter
Basically bill cardell's whole catalog :-)

Installed by Bill Cooper of Coop's Miata in Maple Valley, WA and tuned to 248 WHP at 11.5 lbs by Josh at Corvettes of Auburn

Good to be among friends...
