LOL
I justed fixed that annoying-as-hell "Tail Lamp Failure Sensor" light on the dash that's been there since I first got the car.

When I got rear ended, the plastic covers that hide the taillight assemblies inside my hatch got knocked out. So I took a quick peek at the lights and noticed that one of the ground screws was just about to fall off. All I had to do was tighten the screw and voila, no more annoying orange light on my dash!

Ryan, we're making my downpipe and some hardpipes when i get all the parts/money together... do you want to try making strut tower bars? i was thinkin of the tribar that ties into the firewall, you could probably make one for $30 in metal, or about $60-70 in aluminum

what kind of MIG did you get? Weldpak? is it 230V? i was readin about lincoln MIGs, and you have to preheat aluminum, and it can only weld around 1/4" material.

i need to practice welding, been too long since ive done it. you mind givin me some pointers?

well, i dont know what the fuck is goin on with my car...

i was working last night, coming back from sidney. boosted a bit, but not too hard. drivin down the highway, my temp gauge started goin up, then back down. after that, it seemed to only do it on inclines, becuase when its sitting level it idles normally, normal temp, no white smoke or anything. my temp gauge is out of whack anyways becuase i dont think i put the needle back on right when i took my gauges apart. i tried fixing it, took it around the block, and now its pegged at redline, so i dont know if its just the temp gauge, or if its something worse, like a BHG.... so now i cant work, and no shops have any time until after xmas...

what should i do... FUCK i just want a reliable car....

Ryan, call me when you have a chance, id like to talk with you about it.

yank your thermostat, or boil it in water and see if it opens up.. it could be sticking. when mine was toast my temp gauge would do some weird shit, but then if i turned off the car, then back on when it was just about to open (just before the engine was fully warmed up) it would usually go back to usual, not a clue why.

ya, i dont get it though, i just replaced the tstat a few months ago, maybe i got a faulty one?

tomorrow im going to install my autometer temp gauge, and see what that reads... i can borrow the rents van for work tomorrow night, so that would give me the next 3 days to fix the car.

ok, i think i may have found the problem, i just hope its JUST this one thing.... turbo coolant hoses. the top one is cracked, and dripping water. took it for a drive around the block, came back... it sounds like its sucking in air... so im hoping that replacing that hose and the clamps will solve my problem...

ryan, when you get back, tell me where i need to install my autometer sensor. i think the stock gauge is reading correctly, but id like to be sure...

bypass the vac. line that goes into it from the charcoal canister and screw in your sensor, run the wire to your gauge and you're done.
