I drove 1600 KMS today... Another day another buck !

Found out I have to aim my headlights, The look ok but I don't see the cut off for the projectors (Lows) I also noticed that the highs are just that High and pointing at the shoulders about 20 feet above the road LOL


So that'* a project in it self... Since they need to be removed to be aimed.


Think I sold the Silver Dually today and looked at a 2002 Yukon Denali XL

I don't think I'm doing much with my car today. If anything, I'm taking it to the shop to fix the damned EGR Valve. My dad doesn't feel like messing with it.

Working on the Montana today. The ABS and TC light has been on for a while. Checked the DTCs and it shows up as RH wheel spin sensor. Well, I replaced that hub and sensor in spring. Guess it could have failed. Time to dive in and do this right. First I unplugged the sensor to inspect the plug. Well, water in the plug isn't a good sign.

Can't stop there. Time to test the WSS, so I connect the probes.

Give the wheel a spin, well. If I did this right, the sensor is shows up as good.

So I go to rockauto and order a new plug. I figure I'll replace that one and see if it corrects the problem. If not, well, then I have a plug I can toss in the oscilloscope box. I can use that for testing WSS.

My wife has also been saying the front end is making noise. While under there I pushed on the sway bar end link and it has play. So I ordered a new end link. I'll be putting that in as well on Thursday. Hopping the new plug fixes the TCC light.

Stopped off at Menards and picked up a new wire stripper, tired of the old cheep one I had. This one is a auto stripper, put wire in, squeeze, and wire is stripped. Much nicer when working in close corders.
