On 98 S10, swaped thermostat, installed front license plate mount, lubed ball joints, inner and out tie rods and 2 other things I not quite sure what they are (need to have a side attachment on lube gun to get two of the zerks), degreased the underside of the engine that had a huge coat of oil and coolant mixed, and then washed it all down. Changed the oil and filter (2nd time in 2 days) as I am worried about foreign material in the oil from the LIM gasket replacement. It was below zero, I am thankful for the heated garage. With the front tires off was a perfect time to replace the spark plugs, but Wife gave me a warning in the morning to be home be 730pm or else (I rent the garage about 30 minutes from the house).
