Windshield and Heater

Posted on Updated on

I noticed a crack in the windshield a few mornings ago.  It hasn’t spread, but I noticed it.  It’s starting from the passenger’s side on the bottom.

The heater still smells like antifreeze, so we haven’t been running it.

Tires and Oil

Posted on Updated on

On 3/18/16, I replaced all four tires in Centennial, CO, as I was slip-sliding all over the place on bald tires in the snow.

On 6/27/16, with approximately 169,000 miles, I had the oil changed at the Firestone on Southern Blvd.  They also rotated the tires.  Everything else checked out alright.

Oil Change

I had Firestone on Southern change the oil for me yesterday.  It has been in the 10’s and 20’s, temperature-wise, and I didn’t feel like laying on the ground to change the oil myself.

I also added a page for maintenance logs.  If you can’t sleep at night, feel free to check that one out.

Thank you for reading my post.

I had the oil changed at Firestone because they could do it cheaper than I could. It was changed 149,600 ish miles about a week ago.

Flat Tire

The rear passenger tire was slack yesterday morning.  I limped it to a tire shop that was a few miles away in Socorro, and they found two nails in it.  They patched it up and sent me on my way.

Brake Module

Posted on

I occasionally have the brake light and ABS warning lights illuminated. I think it is the ABS module that needs to be replaced.

According to the internet, there are often cold solder joints in this module, and I will need to fix them. Realistically, I will find another one in a junk yard, replace it, and then repair one in my house while using the other one.

Thank you for reading my post.

Fuel Pump

Posted on

Yesterday, the car would not start. I checked the relay for the fuel pump, and it was fine, as were all of the fuses. I cleaned the air filter in exaggerated hopes that it was not the fuel pump. However, deep down, I knew that when I turned the key to “on” and I didn’t hear the pump pressurize, that the pump was dead.

I had them replace the inline filter as well. $717 and several hours later, I was back on the road.
