    Trying to get this thing ready for a tax time sale.
    Recently the Radiator expansion tank cap that came
    with the tank fell apart when I went to add to the fluid level.

    Was about 4-5 years ago I had to replace it due to
    degradation of the plastic from heat cycles, the entire
    top corner disintegrated and buying a replacement was
    only $27. This one is starting to do the same thing only
    faster than the OEM one.

    Found this better quality Stant 10251 cap for $12+ and
    free ship from the jungle. No more radiator light on the
    instrument cluster I hope.

    Used the Avital remote start this morning and the factory panic went off and couldn't make it stop for 3 minutes.
    Was about to disconnect the battery and it reset. Never in the 17 years of owning this Mazda has this happened.

    Weird. Maybe a ground wire got corroded?

    and hasn't done it since.
