    What did you do to your car today?

    Lets keep this a continuing, never gonna die thread.

    For the Toyota truck, I changed the plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, and changed the oil in it this morning. Also ran a can of seafoam through it before I changed the plugs, gotta love that huge cloud of smoke. Love how stupid easy the 22R-E is to work on. Runs a lot smoother now, and fixed my rough idle problem.

    Tomorrow I'm going to wax and detail the Cadillac. Gonna be a long ass day.

    68 degrees here. Got underway at 1:30 and drove down to the tip of Kent Island and back - 17 miles - to warm it up. Front end up on jackstands in the garage, change oil and filter. Check underneath for this and that. (garage concrete floor is COLD). Pour in 7.5 quarts of Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30 and a prefilled WIX 51522 filter. Check for leaks and check all fluids. AOK.

    Drain oil was clear dark amber. 4,500 miles. Used 20 oz. of oil over that mileage which works out to about 1 quart/6,000 miles - 11.5 months (it's been a quiet year). Took used oil up to Charlie's for his shop furnace.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Sweet. I just got done working on the Bricklin for the day, only to find this thread.

    Today, I:

    1) Installed replacement alternator.
    2) Installed new thermostat.
    3) All but finished the pneumatic plumbing! I now have working doors, hatch, and headlights! The air is now running on the onboard compressor and not the home compressor. The only thing left to hook up are the air latches and one regulator to keep the headlights from snapping up so violently.

    The only snag came near the end of the work day - I was letting the compressor do its thing and one of the air line ruptured! I'm assuming it's only because of a wrongly installed pressure switch - the compressor should have cut off at 120 psi and the lines are rated for 150! Scared the crap out of me.

    Today I probably made the most progress on the car (in one day) that I can remember. I'm back into the fray tomorrow...

    Last night, in the dark, I sloppily applied Back To Black on the trim pieces. Now it looks like it was driven through a pool of bacon grease.

    Looked at it, smelled it (doesn't everybody?)... checked my oil, put the windows down, music on blast, and drove to work with the windows down.

    Also got a compliment from a campus security officer on my smoothie hubcaps.

    I discovered that my water pump cover gasket is leaking... thought I smelled coolant when I got home the other day. NAPA should have my new FelPro gasket tomorrow morning, so that will be my project.

    I drove it and realized how quickly it's falling apart.
