  1. They brought me one of the pads to show me, I wish I had taken a picture. There was a corner of the pad, about a half an inch long that was missing from the one he showed me. He said he'd never seen anything like it.
  2. On Thursday I was caning through some back roads in the SHO on the way home from work, upon braking from high speeds there was a small shudder and I thought nothing of it. As I continued the high speed braking the brakes got a bit softer, and once again I thought nothing of it. The final time I did it, the car started shaking violently and stunk of hot brakes. So I brought my tomfoolery to an end for the day and cruised back on home. But the hard shake was still occurring. So, it needed an oil change anyway so I brought it into the dealer and had them take a look. I get a call from them about 30 minutes later telling me that the rear rotors had heavy scoring in them and the rear pads had pieces missing out of them. Well then. I now have freshly machined rotors and new rear pads - and surprise surprise, the car stops wonderfully now
  3. Was it deep blue? I saw a deep blue Town Car and wondered if it was yours
  4. So shocker: a GM product is having electrical issues. The truck tried to light itself on fire. The speed control for the blower motor got too hot to touch and starting pouring smoke. Wires melted on the back of it, so I cut it off and took it to the parts store and put an aftermarket one in. Well, that must have done something to the climate control which is now on the fritz. A/C cuts in and out, if I jiggle the button I can make it work until the next bump when it promptly cuts back off again. Looks like I'm off to Pull-A-Part then.
  5. So for good measure I pulled the compressor while I was in there. Glad I did. Looks like it blew up So I bought a new one, stuck it on and had the shop fill it back up again. Now I hopefully should be good for a while!
  6. So I took another look at the compressor. Then I noticed that it wasn't the compressor leaking, but the fittings on top! So I yanked them out and they look a bit rough. Gonna change them and get the system vacuumed and pressurized hopefully tomorrow, get them to throw some more dye in to make sure that nothing is going awry.
  7. Still better than an EVAP Core! Unsure, I'm trying not to vent the probably 10psi thats left in the system into the atmosphere but at the same time, its literally right on top and a new compressor runs between $170 and $200 so its not that much. If I can get labor for ~$100-150 including the refill I might just have the shop do it.
  8. Well the A/C in the truck gave up the ghost on Friday. Cycling, but not staying on. There is green all over the compressor so it looks like that's the culprit. Thought about getting another recharge but that would just be delaying the inevitable - and a full system only lasted 3 weeks so...
  9. Any particular reason for the 4L60E and not the 4L80E? Much stronger transmission!
  10. Returned some furniture yesterday to the GF's family. While I was down there they enlisted my (read: trucks) help with moving some trailers around. Truck did well! Then I snapped this corny shot on the way back home.
  11. The truck came with 2 mud tires on the front that were fairly worn, and two road tires on the back that were also fairly worn. Holy SHIT those mud tires were loud. So I gave in and bought 4 new ones, Some cheap all terrain tires, I was going to go with some road tires but the open rear diff has enough trouble keeping traction so I wanted to try to give it some help. SO MUCH less road noise, now I just need to fill the holes left in the doors from where the PO installed towing mirrors without capping off the slots for the regular mirrors and I should be able to hear myself think over 40mph
  12. Thats.. disappointing compared to the Euro one:
  13. OBD2: Accord Wagon or Camry wagon. Non-OBD: Tercel wagon
