I really appreciate the offer but I'm going to have to decline it. Mental capacity to want to have a project is basically none.

On Friday I had to replace the right side washer nozzle because the barb the the hose pushes onto had turned to crumbly bits. Also blew out the left side. Both nozzles work good now.
The driver's door was really squeaky when opening/ closing it, so I sprayed it down.

Sounds stupid but I washed/ cleaned/ took steel wool to the car key. It was pretty discussing & that's one thing I didn't clean when I bought the car.


Going back to the major issue I had...
I swear I still can feel some kind of RPM fluctuation while driving, although its not to noticable. And a few times since I've put the crank sensor in it's had an extended crank but fires right up. Not to worried about it as long as the car don't let me down on a road trip, LOL.

Had to change out some brake light fluid. Didn't make mess, so that made me happy.

Really wanted to drive the Celica the past few days but the roads are still covered in salt & potholes. Even tho the car isn't perfect would still like to keep it clean. Maybe I'm using that as a excuse, LOL.

Same man, same. We keep having a few scattered 50 or 60 degree days but they're bracketed by rain/snow/freezing temps so everything is salted so bad it's like driving around on gravel roads in some places.

Facebook reminded me... February 3rd/ 4th 2018 is 5year anniversary. Exciting I know.

I might pull it out of the garage since it's supposed to be warm & drive it around. If I remember how to drive a manual, lol. Been sitting since mid-December with a battery tendy on it.

Almost warm enough here, 40 degrees. Roads however are so salted much that my Mazda can do burnouts from stop signs on the powdered road salt.

Bed sides over the wheels and the cab rocker panels? How they constructed those flares over the wheels on the bed is just ludicrously stupid, the layers of steel are almost built to rust out. I've seen some people drill big holes into them and paint the insides but leave the holes open so they can drain out and get washed out regularly.

For as much and as often as rocker panels rot on cars you'd think we'd have advanced to the point that they'd be bolt on or plastic.

So... Had a P0115 (Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor 1 Circuit) pop up, So that's just dandy.

At least for now I have another POS to drive.

Finally got around to fixing the Celica. Ended up being the coolant temp. sensor for the ECU. Unplugged it & ECU read -40, then jumped the connector & it read 284,. Also put an ohm meter on the old sensor & nothing.

I swear this is the sweet spot year for cars. Most of the time super simple to diagnose.

Also tightened up the cruise control cable. It would accel & decel like maybe 4mph from set speed. Hope that fixes it & I didn't f*ck it up.

I think that's all for now.

Hell yeah, I hope that's it. Gotta get back out this way to see the Bison over at Buffalo Rock across the river.
