Sprayed the car off at a local car wash, brought it home and took my mothers clay bar kit to it and got all that nasty winter grime off the paint, cleaned all the windows, and shined the tires up. Made a sound system video and took a shower.. lol

Still driving.... she hiccuped a couple times the other night. Trans is not happy. 179,200, I'm either heading for finishing the trans build or a piggy back ride. With the current schedule, likely the piggyback ride.

Put up bead board on the island. Need to load the pics from the camera.

I stripped down my latest engine, just a pile of parts on the work bench now. Got a good price on a low mileage L26 short block, just need to pick it up. Then put it all back together.

Then I changed the oil on the truck. Came out rather watery. That engine is getting tired.

I'vfe been hitting and cursing my car every day for 4 months now. p0171. :/
No matter how many extensions I put on, I can't get the socket straight enough to budge the EGR tube nut.
Guess crossover pipe must be removed once I figure out how.

Have you tried using a gear wrench? As for pulling the cross over pipe, that'* easy, cut the bolts and off it comes. Then put new bolts on. There going to break anyways.

No, whats a gear wrench? (I'm pretty oblivious to tools :/ )

I just want my car to stop misfiring. I hope the p0171 is causing the misfire...
