This MR2 is full of (nasty) surprises

  • Mighty Car ModsMighty Car Mods

    Lengd: 19:46

    Last episode Marty was working on the MR2 which turns out to be not quite as clean as he first thought. Almost every bolt was seized or rusted, and while the body itself is in reasonable condition just about everything attached to it doesn't work. This episode the fuel tank tank needs to be removed and new coolant hoses installed throughout the car. The MR2 slowly but surely being restored to it's former glory but there's still a lot of work left to do.

Mighty Car Mods Marty, I know that was a real struggle to get that tank in but it did make me feel better as I’m constantly working on car projects on my own and now I’ve realized what I must look like. I seem to curse more than you though!

3:43 - At least on the MR2 you can sit down while working on your engine, as a balancing factor

a friend in uk has three of these and he said the easiest way to work on one in engine bay is DROP the subframe and pull the whole thing from under the car..makes it a heck of alot easier

Not sure if this would've helped with your tank, but for motorcycles a common thing to do is get a bunch of clean nuts and some denatured alcohol, throw those in the tank and just shake the hell out of it for an hour or so, helps remove loose rust and cleans up the inside quite a bit!!

Have you delt with the "hose from hell" yet? It usually requires you pull the motor to remove a 3" hose. NEVERMIND! 4 mins in and you mention it. I wish I had an mr2....

I would have thought the rear suspension/ engine cradle all dropped out as a single unit. I think pulling it out probably would have been worth it.

fixing it. You don’t want it to be for nothing. 2- expect to have to pull the engine. Even if the engine is running good, timing belts will require the engine to be pulled.

Watching this MRPOO series just makes me hurt; many memories of working on cars that just don't want to be changed. Also - does it hurt more knowing that you have a mate there with you, but their main roll is to be on the camera. #weallhavethatuselessmate

little tip - when fitting silicon hoses, spray a small amount of wd40 in it at the ends and it will slide on the pipes so much easier.

I have owned 5 MR 2's 2 turbos and 3 aspirated (one a parts car. They cost a fortune to fix because of the rear engine configuration but are fun to drive but no match for the more modern BMW 3 series and Golf Gti's. Only upside is that they are so easy to sell because they have such a passionate fan base and I have had people drive a 1000 miles to pick my car up no problem!

It's no longer an MR2, due to all the parts that you had to replace. Let's call it the MR2.6. Or the MR3, or 4.
