Do boats count? Untarped my 30 footer. Pulled the plugs, installed the batteries, new fuel filter, new gas, cranked the engine full throttle till it spit out the spark plug holes. Tomorrow new plugs go in and hopefully a smooth idle.

Checked my coolant reservoir as I do several times a week. Yep, still above the full mark. Maybe I should get those new o-rings ordered so she hopefully quits leaking and I can quit topping it off.

I put on a new negative battery bolt(after searching high and low for some washers), put on the new egr solenoid(a little iffy about my wires, but at this point idc), and lo and behold...my idle in park sounds a bit better. In gear, the idle still lopes and revving in gear still backfires.

But at least it runs nice in park now...

I worked on my hood and tailgate on my truck. Sometimes, I think I should have left well enough alone.

I also yanked out all but 2 wires that was part of the dual tank system on my truck. I'm only going to run one tank since the selector is probably bad, the switch is bad, and the other fuel pump was rusted pretty bad. Also order a new grill for the truck.

Scanned a Daytona GTP with "trans issues". Felt some odd shifting. Got a couple of codes but the majority of the complaint didn't feel transmission to me.

Swapped out his Platinum plugs for TR55 copper cores. Trans does need help, meanwhile the issue that was bugging him is gone.

I drove home in snow, ice, sleet, bright blue flashes of lighting and thunder that shook the truck. I thought Winter was over. Guess not. Thanks god for 4WD.

Wired up a new headlight harness for the truck. I'll be running 9004 bulbs instead of sealed headlights.
I stopped working when I heard tornado sirens.
