OK, now youíre getting ME nervous. I acquired a 91 90Q about 2 weeks ago.
Iíve noticed that upon a cold start, the red BRAKE light stays lit for from
several seconds to a minute or so, then goes out. Iíve assumed that this
was just a sign that it takes some time for ďthingsĒ to pressurize. But
Iíve also noted that the brake pedal is somewhat spongy. The car has about
69,000 miles. Am I to assume that I to have to consider rebuilding my
power steering pump?
Thanks for your info! (I hope I havenít make a mistake with this
91 90Q (already needs new strut bushings, just bought new tires)
97 Miata R (no problems!)
78 924 (apart)
