    I hate to say this, but I truly believe that I have a stash of Cadillac spare parts that is worth more (retail) than the car itself !

    So today I took the car to school again. But it was a little wierd. I drove the car about 5 miles around town. So it's was hot but every time I stopped at a stop light I could smell something burning. So I was going up a street and gave it a little gas to get up to around 30-35 then my temp went up a quarter tick. When I stopped after, I popped the hood while it was on. And started digging around. The smell was strongest at the right side of the engine, where the surge tank is on my car. Then after 5 minutes I reached my home. I started to parallel park and my temp shot up 3/4 from 12o clock. Is this normal or am I overreacting? Also do you guys get a little hesitation after a stop. My rpm is about 1000-1300 when I take off. And I feel like the car isn't pulling the weight. I don't really know how to explain it.

    No, it is not normal. How's your coolant level?

    Oh I meant 3/4 of a tick not the whole gauge itself and did you see the picture I posted? Have you seen that?

I forgot I'm not driving my moms infiniti and put the car up into neutral thinking it was in tiptronic ( on the infiniti) revved the car and I shifted into REVERSE! I was used to pushing up to upshift...Yes I shifted into reverse while going 20mph. The car came to a stop and it stalled. It wouldn't start. Oil and ses light came on. I tried to restart it and said starting disabled. So me 140 lbs and another friend tried pushing the car. ( all of this right after school. Where there are many cars. I was scared sh#tless. I was thinking to myself if I screwed up the car. My hopes of a g35 coupe would vanish. I waited with a couple bystanders until it said start now. THANK YOU LORD it started without any problem. I slowly dropped off my friend and made my way toward where many of my friends were and I inspected the car. No oil on floor no noises. I made my way back home. Ate and quickly hopped on the forums to figure out if I screwed up my car. PLEASE someone tell me I can still have the car to drive for a couple month til I can sell it and get another car. Wrapped up this was one of the worst days I've had.


    Were you texting on your phone or maybe simply talking on it when this all occurred?

    Oh, that's another story. 3/4 of a tick is nothing to be concerned about.

    Engines: Northstar. The 3 sticky posts on gauges, fans, cooling systems.

    ...........or do you expect a gauge NOT to move in response to change ? Would you be comfortable if you saw your oil pressure go from 20 psi to about 50 - in one block, and then back down again at the next light ?

    The marks on your temp "gauge" are the same as on this one and so are the notes ............ your temp is normal ........
