Purchased this unit used for a project car I was working on, never got around to installing it. The donor vehicle had 42k miles at the time it was removed. I verified this using the vin and running a carfax report. I will also include a brand new accumalator drier.

The Time Has Come.....

19 July 2016 - 03:42 PM

Its with great sorrow that I write this post....


Well as the title reads....The time came for me to have parted ways with my long loved little buddy..... :sadsmiley02: I had an opportunity come up to purchase a 2009 Matrix with semi low miles and an unbelievably low price tag from a close friend.... I know, I know.... I will be the first to say, I don't feel that the 2009 is a newer version of a Matrix, quite frankly its a totally different car....But anyhow, the price was right and as I use my car as a DD to commute 150+ miles a day  so it was time to come to a reality that my 2003 XRS was on its way out.....at 293k miles, it had a severe oil leak, noisy throw out bearing, persistent  cat code coming up and the body was showing its age....I had to make a choice that would work for me now and in the long run, so it had to go....



I will be creating a new post in the days ahead with several parts that I have left over from my XRS, I just need to gather everything up and take pictures, so stay tuned if your interested....


I have attached pictures below of my 2003 XRS and the new so called 2009 Matrix.... sorry for the LARGE pictures, enjoy......




Above: Good times, after a fresh wash and wax, going out for some grub.....

5W/20 Vs 5W/30

15 January 2016 - 11:34 PM

Been noticing that I am having some cold starts lately, In conversation with a friend he recommended I run 5w/20 instead of the 30 weight during the winter cold months. Just wondering if any of you are running this weight? I'm due for an oil change here in the next few days and would consider trying it out if someone here has already been the guinea pig...... :arrowheadsmiley:

Happy New Year!

Although early, yes I know, but then again I may not be mentally available in the morning :bigeyedsmiley: .....I would like to wish all of the MO crew a very blessed and happy new year.


You all have a safe and have a happy one!
