Default Official: "What did you do to your car today?" Thread

I painted my faded side mirrors, door handles and some other miscellaneous things. I took my valve cover off to see that my head has been very well taken care of.

Started painting my valve cover and ran out of daylight. Tomorrow I'll show you guys the finished product, and I will be putting a new valve cover gasket on along with doing a little valve adjustment.

So yeah. These are always decent threads on car forums.

sigh....

I'm waiting for the eBay vendor to send me the right MAF adapter so I can start on my custom CAI....they sent me the wrong size, think it's for a V6 instead of the 8.

Aftermarket or stock? I bet a CAI on that thing would sound pretty nice.

Heres my valve cover I'm working on, not quite finished.

Detailed the Edge today. Washed and clay barred, switched to the PC orbital for some minor paint correction like swirls and scratches and then applied a polish with sealant. Gave it some paste wax, waited over night then waxed again. Finished with some trim restore and UV protection and cleaned the windows. I used a different brand of swirl remover this time and I'm pleased with the results.

It was a bit bright outside when I took the pictures. I'll have to take some better ones when it's closer to dusk.

Yeah that would be nice if I could remove the decal, but it almost seems like it's painted on. Though I'm pretty sure it's not painted, it's still really on there and I'm not sure how to do it short of sanding and repainting.

heat gun?
if its a sticker thats just really on there a heat gun should loosen it up.
Then you need some sort of adhesive remover to remove residue.
and a plastic razorblade or something similar to help scrape it off.

Drove it to and from work, then gave it a really good clean.

Still need to repaint the numbers on the gear knob, put me tax disc holder in, and get me new Type R red JDM mats.

I drove it around and drooled. Noticed it was making funny sounds when shifting to first, 2nd, and 3rd. Realized I suck at driving manual. Trying to improve.

Shopped around for some audio equipment.

What kinda car do you have?

Takes me 10 minutes to change 6 plugs and put them back in.
Ha Ha, if only

98 Kia Sportage, was my wife's originally, but as the boys grew she nicked my Pathfinder and I got stuck with this.

Actually it's quite a nice engine, a Mazda FE2 twin cam, built under licence by Kia.

(Rest of the car is so so, but essentially we must have gotten a good one, as it is now 200,000K, still runs well, and has been basically reliable, and I've heard of a lot which weren't)

To change the plugs:
- Remove the intake to throttle body cross pipe (Aluminum - 3 bolts, new gasket, new gasket goo) remove the MAF sensor tube, remove the idle air bleed tubes and controller, remove the PCV inlet tube, remove the bracket from the cam cover which holds the throttle, tranny, and Cruise control cables, remove the black plastic cover between the cams (8 bolts), remove the coil low tension leads, remove the bolts which hold down the coils, two bolts per coil (two coils on 2 plugs, which feed the other two plugs with leads) remove the leads from the other two plugs. Use a captive spark plug 16mm socket, and a VERY long extension bar to remove the plugs - they are a Looong way down in there between the cams, - work by feel, you can't actually see them. Put in new plugs (with aluminium release agent on the threads -or else you won't ever get them out again) Replace the two plug leads with new ones, as it obviously gets bloody hot in there, and the rubber gets brittle.

Replace the rest of the crap - done, easy! (takes longer than 10 minutes though)

Now to do the timing belt......

My odometer stopped working a few days ago apparently. I took the instrument cluster off today to see if there was anything obviously wrong, and there wasn't. However, the worm gear which turns the other gears in there wasn't spinning easily. I backed it up a little, then wound it forward and I heard a snap as if the gears fell back into place somewhere in the contraption. I spun the worm gear 3/10ths of a mile and it seemed to spin just fine. I reinstalled the cluster but haven't taken it for a drive yet to see if that was it. It sounded like the teeth on the gears had become aligned rather than between each other.

Here's a picture of the back of the unit. The arrows are pointing towards the illumination lights. There are 4 screws to remove to allow the odometer/speedometer to pull forward and out.

I took a scrub sponge and scrubbed three clean circles on my door. I wanted to see if it would make a difference. It did. I now have a mostly gray car with three white circles because I haven't washed it in a year.

Bring my Z to car wash. Shiny, but not clean enough. Seems like water stain on the hood but cant expect something nice when its a $5 wash. Want to wash myself but with limited amount of water I rather use it to wash myself hehe. And need to drink too.

Well, I shouldn't say that, I didn't mind opening it when it was cooler out, but in the Summer they're useless for me aside from added light.

Made an appointment for Friday with the transmission place to swap out my failing transmission with one I'm getting from a local yard that has 78K miles and is only $350.

Total this is gonna cost me about $850.

Transmission was not taken care of; 108K with no preventative maintenance. I have hardened seals/gaskets, and after the trans flush it's burning up clutch packs. Cutting my loses and swapping in a tested used unit.

Car is leaking coolant pretty badly. It's being towed to the body shop that replaced the radiator about 6 months ago.

God damn... What is it with the shops in this province are they all lazy bordering of negligent?

This car was professionally repaired at a decent or so I though decent body shop...

The engine mounts were all buggered, rubber was shredded and the motor was swinging around... So I replaced the driver side mount, packed it with some urethane to help stiffen it, carved out most of the passenger side one since you can't replace them and packed it with a solid pound of urethane...

Now on the driver side mount the the holes had been 'opened' up, but the bolt holes sat dead center, the passenger side mount had 2 washers sitting behind it, odd I thought, and the mount rubber was being pulled off center... So I go to bolt up the passenger side mount, but there is a good centimeter of space... Aww ****, those bastards never straightened out the frame...

So 3 heavy 3/8" washers and one M10 washer stacked, and it is spaced properly...



I swear, I've never seen so much shotty work from so many different places... Yes the stub arm still isn't straight to the mount... Ahead of it is some nasty welding, rust, and 'underbody asphalt spray'...

Oh and Anchor engine mounts are horrible fit/finish I had to grind the tube ends flat(one concave, the other convex), and open one of the holes on the bottom so I could thread the stud into it.
