So I *still* haven't back flushed it, it turns out that the coolant hadn't leaked out, although that is on my to do list for tomorrow. I'm also going to change the windshield wipers and rear view mirror.
I'll try the fuel filter trick... friday or saturday maybe? depends on if my mechanic friend has the lift available (maybe not, there is a car with a messed up tranny on it...).
I'm also now planning on picking up a new headlight housing (front left), the metal bulb cover inside of it fell off somehow, so the bulb doesn't stay put.
Last but not least, I need to clean it out, I popped the trunk today (got the key from my bro) and found it empty except for a fork... did I mention this car has been sitting for over two years (yich!).
Ah, the fuel gauge is... funny, I put about 10 gallons in today, and it'* now past the 'F' so... I think eventually I'll change the fuel pump? or could it be something else?
Ah, and the brakes are not as "strong" as I'd like, I push as hard as I can and it doesn't come to a hard stop, might that be solved by bleeding the brakes? or might I need a full brake job...?
This car is SO much more fun than the van
