Hit the ground running this morning with the brake overhaul on the 4Runner.
Made good progress on the 4Runner’s much-needed brake overhaul this evening.
Got the van back last night, shiny new duals installed:
IMO when driving a vehicle, it is important to have as much information as possible. That of course left me disappointed with the car’s factory gauge cluster:
Did a little something last night:
I even dig the color!
Uneventful day of wrenching. Pretty much cleared out the whole to-do list under the hood of the E46. Valve cover gasket done, the one in there was in good shape still but whoever did it last left off a few washers so the baskets on those bolts had no pressure and were leaking like a sieve.
Found this while tracking down an electrical problem on my brother’s 2016 Focus. What can you tell me about it?
Changing the timing belt has turned into a 3 night event. Sunday night I ran out of light and got sick, tonight I was able to make do with a trouble light and flash light but the wife needs me to watch the pets now. Hopefully I can finish tomorrow night but the wife has surgery in the afternoon so we will see. That is…
Finally got motivation and a break in weather to tear into the van last night. I figured I was just going to start tearing until I found the leak, as I suspected bad intake gasket was making it seem like the HGs were seeping.
As badly as we need to continue repairing the Saab’s rust, we just couldn’t help ourselves but to keep putting the engine back together.
So as I’ve gotten older, I thought I grew out of loud vehicles. Then a couple weeks ago the muffler of the van gave up it’s internals, clogging the exhaust, and forcing me to make a choice.
I think this is my favorite part.
Well, off to my weekend.
Because... weight savings?
See, this is what happens when you don’t inspect your brakes THOROUGHLY.
