If you ever tried shifting without the clutch, the RPMs need to be up there anyways to find the sweet spot where the engine RPM is matched to the transmission. This perceived "long time to fall off"...

Re: Crank, No Start on "new" '93 SL2 (77k!!!) UPDATE

As cgg17 mentioned the fan did not come on with the A/C button likely due to the ambient temperature being too low. I think it has to be above 40F if I recall before the PCM will allow the A/C to...

Re: Soft brake pedal, went to to floor, leak under driver's seat

If you're just moving it around the driveway you can pinch that line with a pair of vice grips before the leak. Keep the vice grips on it. Top up your master cylinder and that will get you through.
