Why routine maintenance is always important 101. decided to pull my lid and clean the blower today after emptying the catch can. once i removed the lid, i noticed a very small amount of coolant- honestly thought i just dripped some on it by accident. the brick had already been reinforced, car runs like a beast, coolant level hadnt moved in 6th months...but i decided to pressure test it anyway. sure enough...this brick developed a small leak somehow. this very well could have cost me motor if i hadn't found it in time. keep in mind this car was bone stock until i bought it..and only has 50k miles. i'd advise anyone with a v to check theirs regularly.
