Well after a long 4 day vacation for my birthday weekend, I got back to business today. Finished putting the car back together again. Timing, gaskets, belts, etc. Realized that my temp gauge wasn't moving after 10 mins. Checked and the little bar went missing.
So I got a new one. Put it in, and then couldn't find the connector.
So respliced the wire put another connector on it and put it back together. Worked perfectly. So after running the car, car was not over heating, I just used water and water wetter this time seemed to help. Until I got on the highway. Didn't overheat but got hotter than normal. Put some more water wetter in there for later. Seemed to do better. Started auto tuning a little too, should really post a log or something.
After car was running gave it a few revs shut it down and checked for leaks again.
I think we are all good. Had to tighten the water line for the turbo going to the waterpump. That saved the loose of coolant. Checked oil no lose that I can tell, burped the coolant system no lose that I could tell after that either.
Went for a drive and felt great, no major issues just driving to drive. Been a while. Put the new wheels on temporarily was going to get them mounted today but realized I will need to raise my car up until I put the flares on fully. I already rubbed with 205/50/15 at my height and I'm no were near slammed. So that will be next weeks chore. Hopefully I can get to Paul's this weekend to get the flares on, but who knows another busy weekend. Moms b day is next week so that will be fun too.
Anyways random grocery trip
How much they poke out meow before flares.
Welp that is all for meow, need to get my interior game back up and running. Need the tires mounted first then can put the door panels back on.
