Snowing out right now, so I get to play in the snow a bit. Also have a car coming today so I can install a new ported supercharger.

I swapped the center tank on my Ford a few weeks back. It was easy. I used a transmission jack to move it in place.

Thinking about taking the car out for some datalogging. The VE tune on the car is coming very close to finished up to 80% throttle anyway. I think I might turn up the boost.

Then my wife comes home and complains the rear window washer fluid is empty. Your truck don't have a rear washer bottle. Yep, it don't spray, but I can hear the pump. I play around thinking the line might be frozen I let it run for a while. finally give up. I walk around the back of the truck and I see washer fluid pouring out the back. Now I have something to look for. Open the door the jack is behind, it'* all wet. I find the line, follow it up. Remove the rear panel, follow it up around the top and look what I find.

Today, cleared snow. Then had a 98 GP come over,owner was complaining about a bad misfire. Yep, SES light was flashing. So I pull up the torque app. No codes found. Odd. Go get the computer. I was getting a P0300 code, it would show up and then go away right away, never getting stored. Very odd. So I scan it. Hmm, his O2 readings were very low. Averaging about 250mv at idle, but I could smell it was running pig rich. Found his #6 plug wire was touching the sensor, moved that, no change. Well, turns out that sensor has over 200k on it. Ya, you need a new sensor. Then I wanted to find out why the codes were not being stored. He said the PCM says ZZP on the side. Ahh. I download the tune and look it over. All the P030x codes are set to not report, but still trip a light. Nice. You get a light but never store a code. I look at more DTCs, a lot of them are set that way. Looks like I'll have a tune coming up for this car.
