    Default A few pictures of the old girl after getting her home...

    So yeah, I had to get her all cleaned up as best I could. Washed, clayed and waxed and vacuumed. Still need to do the interior but I am confident that the exterior is as good as can be had from her.

    Enjoy!

    edit*
    apparently I can't upload from my PC directly or via my google image links. meh. She is clean and feels smooth. I am happy.IMG_20150903_142658.jpg

    That's a remarkable improvement. Lol.

    Main reason I never did that stuff was because she was parked outside.

    So it was kind of funny. I was going to pick Mario up from the airport in Tris. But she got crunched the night before, so when Mario informed me that he landed, I informed him that there would be a change of plans. So I had him take me to go get a rental car. Lol

    She is still going to be parked outside but I would rather have her in as best shape as possible so that I can focus on maintaining it now instead of looking at a full respray. Because I can't afford one. LOL

    I'm also certain my own attitude didn't help very much. Mainly because "Not being a complete dick" doesn't qualify as "being nice" really.

    That was just one of those situations where even my monkey ass knew that the only thing I could do was just grab my stuff and walk out.

    I have since making it home replaced the coil packs (That one was actually arcing like we thought) Found the oil leak (the oil pan drain plug was loose) ordered replacement underbody plastics, found the big ass exhaust leak (Pre-catalytic converter section looks like someone stick welded it while blind. ) Diagnosed the AC system and the whole thing needs replacing. (Condenser is smashed in, compressor is bad and there is a blockage in the lines.) 3rd gear grinds and has some engagement issues. I think it is a matter of needing new bushings since it needs to be wiggled into gear. Upstream O2 has been replaced (threw codes for O2 sensors once I got to the bottom of the Sierras), still need to wait for money to replace downstream O2. Underbody bushings and suspension need replacing soon but are still thankfully intact. There is no rust on the underbody of the car and it is in good solid shape. Still need to get the remaining things above fixed and then get it smogged. I don't anticipate any issues after I get things taken care of and have the exhaust welded up properly.
    The drive was really comfortable and I never had my legs fall asleep or any back pain so definite plus. Still getting used to the window and door lock controls being in the center along with the cup holders being more in the rear. The instrument cluster is really nice and easy to read. I leave the vents closed since with the exhaust manifold up against the firewall it only blows hot air. After detailing the car, she is much happier. Her engine bay is shiny and her wheels are clean and her paint is smooth.

    That could actually be. I don't weld, so the dude that did it could have been blind. Lol

    Condenser, though smashed in, has always worked well in fact. Compressor shouldn't be bad, but I would believe a blockage in the lines. Like I said, there's also a big hole somewhere too.

    Shit, you high son! You just don't know how to drive. Either that or you just don't have the relationship with the car. First I've heard of any engagement issues with third.

    That's probably where that rattle was coming from. But yeah, it's been a while since I did the struts.

    Glad the drive home didn't break you, dude. Driving any other car is now weird for me, since I'm still used to having the locks/windows in the middle. Lol

    AC system I had tested yesterday bro. System holds full pressure for 20 minutes with zero drop. Same for vacuum. Condenser while still functional is bent to shit so I just wanted it to be new. The compressor though it technically "works" will not engage and the system only blows hot air even with power directly applied to the compressor unit. It also seems to have not been properly filled with oil before installation which allowed sediment to enter the main lines and create blockages. Not bitching about any of the issues man, just a list more for my own remembering than anything.

    The oil drain plug was in fact decently loose. Not enough to gush but definitely enough for me to lose 1.5qts on the drive back. I got under her yesterday and remedied this.

    Underbody plastics NEED to be there. They help channel airflow through the radiator and throughout the engine bay. I will ensure that they are fully secured.

    The rattle is actually coming mainly from the driver side fog lamp housing. Something is loose and I can not get the assembly out to pinpoint it.

    3rd gear is the only one that has engagement issues. All the rest are buttery smooth.

    The weld job on the exhaust looks like it was done by a blind drunken toddler who had to go potty. It's that bad. There is like a solid 1/4 inch of pure slag the whole way around where those welds are. I mean there wasn't even an effort made to grind that shit off. Whoever did it should be ashamed of themselves.

    I am happy though. She now starts much better and no longer has the slow start issue that she did initially. Seems a little bit more tourquey now as well.

    Lol, well fuck me running for not turning the damn drain bolt. So weird. I swear I know what I'm doing. .

    I just figured I'd try to save you some money on the condenser really. I mean, I got it from the previous owner like that. Worked perfectly the entire time I had it. But if you've done it all, already and it works, groovy!

    I still think your issues with 3rd gear are made up. That's one where I reject your reality and substitute my own. Learn how to drive, dick!

    I think the local Midas did the exhaust. I don't remember. But it would definitely explain it.

    New Upstream O2 sensor is in. Downstream O2 sensor will need replacing as it was cross-threaded in the bung so both will need to be replaced.
    Exhaust is now properly welded up. No more leaks or fumes and both idle and engaging gears is much smoother without the leak. (YAY!)
    Waiting on the driver side under plastic to show up sometime next week and those will get put in. I will likely take care of the rattling fog lamp housing at the same time.

    Really happy with the car. Just trying to get her in good order before committing to her as my only car.

    Most likely going to sell it.
    Aesthetically it needs: Paint, new seats
    Engine runs perfectly well.
    Driveablility: it needs new suspension.
    Still has an electrical drain somewhere, I installed a battery kill switch and there is no issue.
    That is about it.

    She'll warm up to you, dude. She likes people who replace parts on her. She hated my wife.
