    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    OK. A long day of work followed by a long day of working on the Bricklin.

    1) Distributor cap and new spark plug wires done.
    2) Installed new thermostat. The previous owner installed a 160 degree one (seriously?). Back up to 180.
    3) Had to drill and tap some new paths for the radiator screws. The new ones are 5/16, except the bottom left (a fun surprise if the new owner has to change out the radiator, if I sell).
    4) Plugged up the valves. Now, the air will only push the doors up; gravity will let them shut (I honestly don't know why the original plan was to have them pneumatically close...)
    5) Went to NAPA to pick up belts. A warning to all - DON'T BLINDLY TRUST WHAT YOU READ ON AN INTERNET FORUM. The belts I wrote down from the Bricklin Forum were completely wrong - I had to drive home to get the old ones to verify!
    6) Ordered new radiator hoses while at NAPA. They'll be here Monday, hopefully with my new air compressor and Mazda Pulse Generator.
    7) Installed new belts - Power Steering, A/C, and Alternator (Smog pump has been removed - no emissions for me). After that, it was time to call it a day.

    Overall, the mechanicals are almost there. I just have to reinstall the radiator and fan, dial in the carb, and hunt down any vacuum leaks (which I'm sure will be plenty). Next week I'll finalize the pneumatic system and then it's back to the interior (and my Corbeau seats should ship "first thing next week" according to the seller)!

    After that, we just wait for the body panels. Hopefully the entire thing will be done by the Summer.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    I went to a DIY shop and rented a lift to track down C1711 trouble code. After conducting different tests it turned out that CVRSS module is bad.... I removed the CVRSS module and and now it is in front of me...

    The good news is couple of people in the forum had the same problem and somehow they discovered that an small burned resistor on the board is in charge of this mess! They could repair the board simply by replacing the resistor! The module itself is about 2200$, but a 1$ resistor solved the problem!

    Tomorrow morning I will go to RadioShack to buy the resistor to see what happens....

    Put $30 worth of 91 octane into the Regal yesterday, at $3.65 per gallon. Went from 1/8th tank to 3/4 tank. Jeez! I can remember in '04, when I had that Roadmaster, it KILLED me to put more than $30 worth of gas into it, now $30 won't even fill my much smaller tank (17 gal v. 23.5).

    Don't speak too soon. With the conflicts in Africa and the Middle East, expect gas to be higher than in '08. $80 fillups were becoming the norm. And that was for regular...

    Filled up last night: $59.15 for 17.716 gallons of regular at $3.33. That 376 miles includes a round trip to Portland and a week commuting to work. Still, a $60 fill-up is a bit unnerving, especially knowing it's going to get worse. Probably much worse.

    In the suburbs I saw $3.59 for regular, downtown it's close to $4.
