Re: Kizashi Clutch/Transmission

I dont get to see many sticks since they only came in fwd but Im guessing the bushing is a circular piece of rubber with probably a steel center collar that fits around maybe an 8mm steel shift lever shaft. This bushing could probably be replaced if you could just find or even fabricate one . The Ki...

Re: Cheap fix 17 muffler rust out

My first Kizashi , I had straight pipe for both the rear mufflers with the rest of the exhaust original. It sounded nice I thought without being to loud. Some would surely object though.

With the Kizashi being 10+ years old , here in the high salt use area , I’m seeing alot of muffler rust out that legally must be rejected for state inspection .

Re: Security Code for Stock Head Unit Radio (Panasonic)

Re: Odd stalling at idle RPMs after unusual start-up noise

It sounds like your throttle body is failing to me . If there are no codes to point you in a different direction then I would try one. This shouldnt be sourced from the popular Sx4 or Vitara . Only the Kizashi but can be stick or auto. If you cant find one , I can ship you a known good one for $40
