wannabe: Have you been playing with your gearstick a lot? Didn't your mother tell you you'd wear it out if you don't stop playing with it?

FFS Corders: Depends where you get it from. Jass ones are decent quality and Drmx5 can be a bit varied but is usually long lasting

martiny: I was once told the rubber gaiter lasts longer if you rub talc in before fitting, as it fills the pores (or something). So I shake a new one in a plastic bag with some talc. Don't know if it makes them last longer but I expect 5+ years from a Mazda one.

howardb66: Yeah, a bit of talc is surefire to stop chafing.

Crumpets: Random one chaps - Has anyone had any luck running a PAS cooler?
Apr 11, 2019 8:10:37 GMT
wannabe: IIRC someone either on here or on the other site had issues with boiling PAS fluid at autosolo and was considering options (including PAS delete) but I can't remember what the outcome was! I don't see why you could make a PAS radiator, though

Crumpets: Think i'll look into a small oil cooler and try and run it in line. Thanks for the input Wannabe

wannabe: Everything is fixable with time, skill, money and luck lol. It could maybe be worth considering a thermostat or a manual close-off valve, maybe, in case it's really cold in winter??
Apr 12, 2019 7:11:02 GMT
Crumpets: That's not a problem for me as the car isn't driven in winter hahaha For now i'm going to run without a cooler but always looking towards the next step
