Default Weekend worth of car work

I Thought I would post this weekend fixies for my car all bascilly real. First thing all the list is change the oil. Next while it draining pull the rear passanger door apart and replace the window lift motor that make a lot of nosie and every so often just doesn't work at all. Then of course put the door back together again next go under the hood replace rubber vacum lines the old ones were coming apart. In fact most them I didn't even have to take the justcame apart by playing woth the line. Next on the hit list replace the t-stat nothing wrong with just old put in a new 180 for the summer might put a new 195 for the winter just see how well the heat works, Ok next on the list back in the interior try to better fix roof handle on the rear driver side when every you close the trunk it doesn't come down. I basically need new but I will get that in the furture but I replace the clips instant glued it back together. The roof handle was two and now is one. then go back under put the drain plug back in new oil filter on. then go under the hood put 4.5 quart of 10w-30 vavlione oil in. Replace the oil fileter with ac-delco well actually says master parts. But I took the old one apart once dried it exact same consturction and filter metarial as a ac-delco on the part number are the same. I had much debate weather to change to a partial sythinec or high milage oil,but in the end decide that valonine was do it job I have no leaks the oil always look clean after 3000 miles will a little more dirt,but not much. So end decide not mess with something that seems to work.
So I fire her up take her on road test. Check the hvac controls yup they still works, then test throttle seems wonderful. Put her in gear go off on road test. And yes the cruse still works and now I don't lose speed. Did that in abotu 2.5 hour spent $90
