    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    in keeping with the thread, i changed a single plug on the SRX yesterday to get it inspected. Noone in the area carries AC DELCO plugs so its a temporary fix but i wish i only had to do it once. getting the passenger side coil bank assembly off and back on is a pain in the ass

    Update. I had the tires rotated, oil changed, detailed, and have an appointment to have a local (most expensive, but the best) dealership check out my oil leak. Hopefully not the half-case.

    Flogged the piss out of it on the way home from my mom's job. My god is that fun. Left a little bit of smoke behind the building, then ran it up to the limiter on a back road.


    Ye olde Italian tune-up.

    no worries. its a safari conversion van. it is the most manly minivan you can get (truck styling, rides like a truck, hauls like a truck.) I wouldnt be seen dead in a fwd minivan- too soccer mom-ish. (btw it now has rear air shocks so the van is now raked about 2 inches).

    Damn you, Drew (and nearly 20 years of usage). After our conversation, I notice now my water pump is leaking.


    At least it's easy as crap to get to and only costs $25.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Typically when the term "box truck" is used, it's another term for a straight truck. I hate the term box truck because people love to apply it to everything and, as a result, I don't know what to think when people use it.

    Straight truck (box truck):
