    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Wash and claybar last night, took some time this afternoon to touch up all the nicks and scratches with some leftover paint. (I had traded some computer work with a client for getting my left doors and bumpers repainted. Couldn't do anything else to fix flaking clearcoat.) Going shopping for a set of used rear F45 shocks with low miles.

    Replaced the batteries on both the Allante and the Bricklin.
    Troubleshot the pneumatics on the Bricklin; I need a more powerful air compressor (d'oh!).
    Changed the oil on the Allante, took it for a drive.
    Noticed a headlight was out, bought a replacement.

    Nothing. Sabrina has been sitting in my girlfriend's driveway in Portland since Thursday night while I'm as the Chicago meet. Don't plan on driving her until tomorrow morning when I drive the 88 miles to Corvallis for the start of another work week.

    But I did get her oil changed last Saturday.

    Well, I drove the "Grey Wolf" to church this morning where she could commune with all the other old, but nice Cadillacs in the parking lot!

    I lied, I drove her on her usual weekly 10 mile jaunt of twisties and freeway and it was back in the garage for her.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Spent $110 having the upper radiator hose replaced.

    When I pulled into the garage Sunday night after driving in from Portland after the Chicago meet, I saw steam coming out the front of my car. Not a good sign. Too dark to really see anything, so I drove Betty to work yesterday and called my mechanic to see about bringing Sabrina in today. The temperature gauge hadn't budged from top dead center, there was still coolant in the tank and only a few drops of coolant on the garage floor.

    When I arrived at my mechanic's, the steam was coming out again, so I opened the hood, and the problem became immediately obvious: the upper radiator hose was rubbing up against a pulley on the left side of the engine, and the wear had finally created a hole from which coolant was spraying.

    After installing the new hose, my mechanic also used a couple of zip ties to prevent the hose from rubbing on the pulley. So any Northstar drivers, you might want to check yours.

    Installed a new steering wheel!

    Also a really clean set of junkyard rear cargo light lenses. I'm pleased with the results. Vacuuming the beast out today or tomorrow and will have pics.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Today I will clear the snow off & around and the Eldorado & run it for a while at an elevated idle. It will be too sloppy to take it out for a run. Its been sitting there covered for over a month.

    Gary, open the hood and reach your fingers around behind and under the plastic radiator sight shield (cover) - there's a molded-in channel that the top radiator hose clips into for just that ^^^ purpose.

    The truck: This AM - warmed it up, did the lazy thing and took it to Western Auto - oil & filter, rotate tires, new Exide 84 month battery. (Too damn cold on the garage floor at 28 degrees this morning.)

    Dropped the STS-V off at the dealership for a check engine light. None of the gauges were reporting anything out of the ordinary, waiting for the diagnosis now. First mechanic visit since I got it last August.

    The Eldo is the beater. Its never been driven in snow or salt, coming from Sun City, AZ. in 07' it never has seen much rain. The battery tray has the only minor corroison.

    I can get away with driving a 15 yr old car, she can not. In mid January the loyal & trustworthy 03' Caravan started exhibiting transmission problems that require near total value repairs & traded it info this 2010 Ford Fusion SEL never titled by anyone but Ford manufacturing as a fleet vehicle with low miles. 17,500mi. We paid over $11,000 less than the sticker price of $28,700- W/trade in drove it out minus $16,954.16

    We had to join the 32 mpg club.

    Its a very nice car with NAV, SYNC, back-up camera, blind spot radar, leather, moon, heated seats, handling pkg, 84 mo. Ford ESP warranty. It has everything with the exceptions of remote start & the V6 or hybird -a Ford/Mazda built in Mexico. 175hp 2.5 I4 was the reasonable choice with plenty of power although it just seems like a mistake not to get the 240hp V6. Its a good cruising & handling car with good leg room & a huge trunk. Its getting 24-25mpg around town compared to the Caravan 17-18mpg city.
