    Replace it with a Process West silver thing. Moar bugs ftw.

    Ok, calm down man. You did curse. Dodging the swear filter is cursing, arguing with Torque (a moderator) is always a losing fight. You've been fairly warned, let's move on.

    Any mesh small enough to catch bugs will impede flow to a certain extent. How much depends on the material, but bear in mind Subaru spec'd the intercooler based on a given airflow. Changing that flow may have detrimental consequences. Just use a cleaning agent like Simple Green (you can even get an automotive-specific formula, which is what I use).

    A friendly suggestion: In most cases, the only contact we have with each other is through writing here. Text messaging-type spelling and grammar typical send a poor impression to many readers, which I'm sure is not true in real life, but you're writing is the only way we can perceive you. Good grammar and spelling go a long way toward people taking you seriously. Its totally fine that you haven't had much technical experience on your car, we are here to help, and you'll learn fast.

    And why not? As long as you cover the airbox intake (or short ram/CAI if you have one), spray the engine down to your heart's content. Everything in the motor that is critical is concealed to keep the oil/coolant in, so why wouldn't it be sealed to keep the water out?

    The headlight fluid reservoir is located next to the horn oil pan, right below the rear transmission on a new Prius. When changing headlight fluid, make sure someone checks the differentials in your dash light that lets you know your headlight fluid is low. It could be that the fluid leaked from your waternator, but you never know unless you get that checked out, too.
    And remember, with the new Prius, you may want to avoid parking on a hill because the "park" only locks the flywheel, not the other three wheels. That could be due to the fact that the Prius has a 3 stroke engine.
    You might want to get it looked at ASAP. Lots of potential problems.
    Bahahaha "waternator" "3 stroke engine"

    This one is still my favorite: Tampon Dispenser (For Automatic Vehicles) - $55.95 : KaleCoAuto.com, Your home for the rare, unusual, and hard to find auto parts.

    I believe that pic is from a Forester, yes?
