I'm going to jack the car up and clean the undercarriage from all the tranny fluid that leaked to make sure its not leaking any more, and then check all the fluid levels! It'* making a "low fluid" sound and I'm not sure what'* causing it.

I removed the rear tail light panel in the trunk to change some bulbs. Need to get some of the plastic fasteners for spares that hold the panel on.

I fiddled with my tune a bit. Dropped the in gear idle a bit to low and the alternator can't keep up. So bumped it back up a bit.

I jacked up the car, cleaned underneath with break cleaner, noticed my tranny stopped leaking....but now I see oil droplets forming under there. I don't know if it'* from my leaking valve cover, but that'* another tally on the "trade 'er in" collam. I also tried to undo the bolt to my front engine mount, but it'* locked on there so tight, I bent my ratchet.

Went and bought some lexan sheets for a little project I have going on.
Bought some reversing gearwrench ratchet wrenches at Lowes on a deal.
Also bought socket tracks to try and keep my 1/2" drives from rolling around in the toolbox.

Got home, took me a few tries, but got the LeSabre up on the Rhino ramps to change the oil. (Tough because everything is all mud right now, getting up on ramps without a spotter was not fun). Changed the oil, Mobil 1 on special at Wally World. Also put on a new set of Bosch Icon beam wipers.
Cleaned up the toolbox a bit, took stock of a few things I need to get from Sears next time I'm up there.
Good thing it was a decent day and I had it off. The oil life was down to about 25%, I usually change it once it hits the mid 30s, and tomorrow its supposed to snow... again.

Mounted my dual fans in my truck and started to wire them up, but gave up for the night.
