    I agree with those that let the dents and scratches alone. Someone will probably run into you anyway an either get it fixed at that time or pocket the insurance money. if you get it fixed now on your own dime you will be worrying about someone else running into it ..... relieve yourself of the worry and leave it alone. Beaters are for beating!

    Spent $126 on a battery for the Z28.... Found out that was my starting issue! Just needed a new battery. So all in all it was a good day.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    A friend has a son with a 2001 Celica he is in the process of doing a lot of "work" on. Thus far, this work involves adding fake carbon fibre to the interior, changing the steering wheel (which I ended up having to do) swapping out the headlights and ignoring the bald tyres.

    Today, I ended up handling the stereo, because he had fried two already, just trying to install one. Not sure what was so hard about it...

    Anyhow, I invested the twenty minutes in doing so at a cost of $50.



    In the process, I found that he had blown a fuse for the accessory power supply. I compromised and switched it (so now he has a functional stereo and accessories, but no rear defogger)

    I normally would have replaced the fuse, but it uses one of those infamous TOYOTA Multifuse jobs. I do not keep spares of these around because how often do I really need one?

    If you're not familiar with them, they have two positive points, each one leads to two accessories. This is the cheap way of making fuses, as it ensures that they only have to manufacture one fuse, instead of four.



    As for what I did with my own car, I spent the day enjoying that I do not drive something as feeble as a TOYOTA Celica...

    I already said that.

    No wait, I said it was made by TOYOTA.

    Wait, no...I am right. That's the same thing.

    He could replace the broken AC knobs rather than swapping the stereo. But well, he has ignored the bald tires too.

    Actually, that knob is not missing. It was just in the cup holder and had not been put back on yet, because I imagined I left it on the work table, but apparently not. They have to be removed to gain access to the stereo. The slide switch above the knobs though, I have no idea about that. It was missing when the key was handed over to me.

    Still, there is a LOT of work that this car needs and a new steering wheel, stereo and stick-on fake carbon fibre decals are not items on that list.

    The wife's 30,000 mile 2010 Chrysler Town & Country went in the shop today, she hit the brakes and they went to the floor. 4 pumps, nothing happened except she rolled through a red light into an intersection. In true Chrysler fashion, the dealer found nothing wrong and suggested we replace the brakes. Apparently the dealer could not reproduce the issue. I think we'll hang onto the loaner and let the reconsider.

    Ummmm, nothing wrong? Replace the brakes (as in pads and rotors)?

    If there's no leak, the master cylinder is faulty.

They are also fun to drive for what they are, offering great road feedback and steering feel. This car should give you many trouble free miles ... I never experienced any large repairs, just normal maintenance issues.
    I do love the car. I'm pretty smitten with it right now and it certainly doesn't drive like the 240k miles that are on it.

    The big dent can be pulled out the passenger door so I will at least get that fixed along with the cruddy front bumper. I'll have the car buffed afterwords and just focus on maintenance which granted isn't much at all.

    ran a new choke wire on the caddy and hooked up the tach. took a while, but unless you really look under the dash, you can't tell any wires have been added (I ran them through the dash instead of draping out under it).

    Also, because MURRICA

    Could be air in the ABS system as well.

    Granted, it needs rear brake pads very soon but they can and do work just fine.

    Took the ATS to the dealer to update the CUE system & service update bulletin "rough engine idle"
