    Installed a new fused and switched circuit and installed seat heaters in the front seats. Looking forward to a toasty warm seat this winter!

    I need to stop by my brother in law's place to grab some parts off the SL1 for this car. I need a spark plug and the O2 sensor. The old motor had NGK coppers, but i somehow broke one in half pulling them out. So i used a spare platinum that came in an old car i had. And i keep getting a p1133 code so i'm swap out that O2 that i know didn't throw codes in the other car.

    Well, not my car anymore, but my formerly boosted 99 SL2 keeps breaking lately and ending up in my driveway.

    Last week it was the radiator. The fan shroud rubbed through the 3 bottom rows. Replaced that. In the process, found the aftermarket coolant tank I bought for it when I boosted it had rotted and the top nipple was cracked. Also found the Delco cap I bought at the same time had come apart and the pieces were in the bottom of the tank. Bought a new OEM tank and got it installed Thursday night.

    Came back to me again today. It's reportedly making some weird noises at low speeds. I can't reproduce it. I did find the driver's side CV boot is spewing grease everywhere though.

    My wife's Fusion has been doing weird electrical things lately, so I cleaned the grounds today. She got half way down the road and it shut off. She got it back home, I hit it with ForScan, cleared all of the adaptive tables in the hopes that I just screwed up the tables when I was cleaning the grounds. So far so good.
    Current: 2015 Fiesta ST - Full stage 3 bolt-ons and a 93 octane custom Stratified tune at 27 PSI.

    Former modded N/A 97 SL2, unmolested 96 SC2, and turbo 95 SL2.
    99' SL2 Turbo - Parted out, returned to stock years ago, still on the road but everything keeps breaking.
    00' SC2 DD - SOLD
    02' SL1 - On loan to someone

    After swapping out the upstream O2 sensor, i am now getting a P0134. I didnt get this code in the doner car, but i might just buy new sensor and see where that takes me.

    Know that wreck I had like a month ago?

    I finally got the check from the other guy's insurance today. It has the wrong last name. (They added a letter making it a whole different name)

    With it came their estimate... the bumper they located to base the price on is off of a 2 door. Mine is a 4 door and is different. GM part numbers agree. They also did not put anything on there about paint. (other than a couple notes about clear coat)

    So, it is wrong name, wrong parts, wrong color, and wrong dollar amount. YAY!
    I think I'm going to be calling my car insurance tomorrow...

    Yeah, I'm in Indy.

    For my luck with cars, the the truck we bought days before my wreck has had the transmission go out while the wife was driving it. Trans fluid pouring out and she thought it was going to catch fire. Paying a shop to replace the trans.

    Still looking for a 3rd gen wagon as a project car but the wife ain't having it.

    Nothing, I did nothing with this car today.

    I've driven it nearly daily since '05. This year's amount of miles is the least, by year, it's accumulated, basically since I've owned it.

    This is wierd.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    I changed over to a junkyard map sensor to see if that stops or changes a code I've been getting...

    The swapped to my winter wheels and checked tightness in front suspension bolts (changed it all out a few months ago). Though torqued to spec, the strut/knuckle bolts allowed a tiny bit of play so I went well beyond torque spec. That ended a noise I was getting over bumps.

    While I was swapping the wheels my wife showed one of the reasons I decided she was the one... She asked what she could help with and ended up swapping out the tail lights and rear bumper bar for me. Popped out the dent in the cover to get it looking better and will be getting another one repainted in the spring. I had to help with one nut on bar and one screw on the cover. Then with alignment when putting the cover back on. Otherwise it was all her.

    After that, she cleaned the summer wheels before wrapping them and we put them away for storage.

    I need to get in the habit of cleaning the summer wheels when they come off for the season. I managed to do it the first year, but the last few have been back to a last minute scrubbing before they get reinstalled.
