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

Posted on

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.

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.

On 5/26/15, I purchased my 2006 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor (P71). It had 124,109 miles on it, and is in really good shape.

The only problem I’ve noticed so far is that the odometer fades in and out, sometimes not working at all for extended periods of time. It’s just the display, the mileage continues counting upwards, and this appears to be a common problem with this model.

Here are a few photos:

Yesterday, we tried to find a push bar for it, but our local junkyard had none.
