    so I start it up today to warm it up before I head out. Let it run for about 15 mins and as I'm walking out to get in

    PSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHH

    *smoke billows from under the hood*

    No coolent in it now. Looks like a line popped off or something. It's too dark so I can't tell where it came off. Hopefully nothing serious. I'd assume it's not good to have it sit in the cold with no coolent in it, but I don't really have much of a choice :(

    You best hope it was a line and not the block, or rad.

    Weather > My Accord + Eisenhauers Jetta! :ugh:

    *Idling is completely fucked tonight before it warmed up after 1/2 hour.
    *Throttle stuck at 110km/h out on the highway right when I was trying to slow down to take the sacville exit. :eek: Popped the hood and the throttle linkage was completely encased in ice.
    *Opened my trunk to get my flashlight, and the trunk plastic trim on the outside completely snapped off in my hand due to the cold owning cheap thing plastic
    *Moisture is somehow getting into my seatbelt cannister, thus tonight my seatbelt was completely frozen.
    *I need about 5 male arms to shift between gears before it warms up good

    :eek: FUCK WINTER!!! :mad:

    Exact same thing with mine!!! Can't even put it in reverse without it warming up for 10 min!

    At the dealership today, the hydrolics/joints in the trunk froze so we could only open up the trunks like 5cm and they wouldn't go anymore!
    Then when I went to deliver a car, tried to roll down the window so I could throw a token out at the bridge toll, NOPE, window was frozen shut! Had to open the door.

    I replaced my Fast Idle Solenoid and the hose that connects it to the IAC valve about a month back. Turns out the hose I used didn't like -25 C and it cracked. Got it replaced at Civic Pride and all is good

    total cost: $0

    :D :D That's my kinda repair!
