Well, got the new struts, hubs, and axles in place, also got brakes, sway bar and steering hooked back up and put the front wheels on. Now messing around with the vacuum lines, what a pain.

I replaced a hub on the Montana last year because the WSS went out. 3 months later, the same sensor went out. Some times they just don't last.

Sure you can Sarah. Just get a vehicle that has no sensors in it.

Just replaced the carpet in the Bonneville. A much tougher job than I thought.

I extended the plugs for the MAP sensor and IAC valve and solder the wires at the starter on my truck. Also finished cutting the diamond plate for the dash in my truck.

Made a dump run with the branches the birds were using to **** me off, then loaded up the scrap iron and all the parts I've been swapping out of the PA.
For the fishin truck l ordered gaskets for lower parts of engine,a full clutch kit, and a complete exhaust system. That should take care of all the gaskets did the top side already have to do clutch an exhaust anyway so will just pull the motor and do it standin up.

take the sensors out and clean them, there is a tsb for the early body style for salt areas crap getting in the sensors and lifting it slightly but enough to mess it up. the tsb only applies to a limited number of trucks but they didnt change the design significantly that i saw. my obs yukon looks exactly the same too and has the same problem, but they dont have that on there either. i think if you put a meter on there you are supposed to get 350mv ac if you spin the wheel.
