*    Note: Mazda fills system with FL22 (green) premix coolant at the factory, and the coolant reservoir cap (Mazda) recommends same.

The Mopar coolant is purple, and if you are simply topping off your coolant level rather than flushing and replacing, mixing the purple with the green may turn the color to black, depending on the amount added.  If you wish to maintain color, consider using  Mazda FL22 coolant  instead (and don’t add water).

If choosing other brands, it is most important that your coolant choice be OAT, extended life, ethylene glycol based and 2-EHA free.

  1. I would like to thank you for your site, been looking for Info on my Spider specs for sometime now. will save this site and use it in the future. Again THANKS

    Liked by 1 person

  2. Writing everything into a blog helps me organize all of the info I gather, and it sure beats having scraps of paper with notes in a pile or folder 😉

    …and it hopefully helps out other 124 Spider owners too!

  3. I am planning to take my car to a track later this month. But the track owner wants documentation of the Spider’s rollover protection. They allow the current Miata on the track with its factory rollover protection. And they say they will allow my car if I can document it. They told me to check the manufacturer’s specs. But so far I can’t find this info anywhere. I can’t find the info for the Miata either so I can compare. Any idea where I can get this?

    Like

  4. Good question! I looked in my Specs files and found nothing. Since “Rollover Protection System” is listed as a standard item for every 124 on some dealer’s sites, and since it consists of EXACTLY the same components as those in the MX-5 (perhaps that is enough for some track owners?), I expected “Rollover Protection System” to appear on my official build sheet, but it isn’t listed there either unfortunately. If it is listed on your build sheet, perhaps that can be used for documentation purposes.

    Add your VIN to the end of this link to create a detailed pdf file of your 124 Spider build.

    For the heck of it, I added:
    Convertible Rollover Protection: same fixed hoops as MX-5
    to the SPIDER ACCOMMODATIONS section of my Specs page, but I doubt that will carry much weight with track owners 😉

    Like

    • I already had the build sheet. But it doesn’t list any kind of rollover protection. In all my searching I still haven’t really found what I’m looking for. But I did find this link to the safety and security section of the Press Kit for the Spider. I thought you might be interested in it.

    • Debbie, I address that issue in my first blog article. I just measured the trunk opening today and added that info. I am able to get two large folding chairs into my trunk with plenty of room for other cargo and they are longer than the opening.

      Like

    • If your beach chairs are unusual, you could take one of your chairs to your local dealership and see if you can jam them in. lol Joking aside, you can purchase an aftermarket chromed exterior luggage rack that mounts on the trunk lid… kind of a 50’s/60’s retro kind of look, but with that you could strap pretty much anything on (so long as it didn’t weigh so much that it caved the trunk lid in).

  5. Great resource Dan. I’ve downloaded and printed out the booklet. I’m fairly sure the centre hub for the wheels is 54.1mm if it’s the same as the MX5.

  6. Tire pressure warning light on my Classica will not go out. Reset doesn’t work even after trying all suggestions. Any ideas? Dealer can’t help either.

    Like

    • Do you mean the salesman can't help you?
      The dealer service department has to help you resolve this warrantied service issue. They have a procedure to follow to lead to the root cause, as the lamp may be indicating trouble with an ABS related component.

      Like

      • Service only said it was “temperature change”. 4,000 mile road trip later it’s still on and reset doesn’t change it.

        Like

  7. Just noticed a small mistake. The manual transmission you have listed is C635, with is actually a FIAT-made dual clutch used in other FIAT and Alfa Romeo models. It’s not what’s in the 124. You correctly state that it’s the Miata NC’s transmission, but that’s the Aisin AZ6.

  8. Hi,

    Great info here, thanks!

    Have you encountered the issue I have with my Abarth 124 where when I open the roof with the ignition off, the windows drop 2-3 inches but then I can’t move them either up or down unless I start the engine. simply switching the ignition on wont move them, odd!?

    Liked by 1 person

    • Just turning on the ignition works for me and is all that should be necessary. You are probably only putting the car into ACC mode, rather than ON (one more touch of the switch).

      I’m in the habit now of leaving the engine running while raising/lowering the top, adjusting the windows and then turning off the ignition to avoid all the inconvenience.

  9. Dan, would you check your source for “Oil Drain Plug Torque: 19 ft.-lb.”. I’m looking at the “Engine Oil Drain Plug” spec in the manual and it says 20 Nm.

    Like

  10. I can’t find any mention of that in my Owner’s manual. On a Dart forum, I just found 27 N-m which equates to 19.9 ft-lbs. I can’t recall where my original source was from.
