If it don't smoke, send me the other gasket, I could use it to replace my front leaking one.

Gotta replace the oil pressure switches in both the Bonne and the truck. Trucks switch just went bad and pegged max, the one in the Bonne still works, but its leaking really bad. Also gotta do the belts on the truck too, they're starting to squeak pretty bad.

Both of my 90s GM cars had the oil switch leak and it still worked fine. The GPs switch would stick sometimes when it was cold outside.

From the research I did, it'* common for the aftermarket switches to leak and work. I'm just gonna get Delco for both since I get a good deal on my parts.

I found a set of these white lettered window switch covers. I never have seen anything like this before. I thought they were pretty neat because it is the same color as the outside of the car.

The snow is gone and I'm outside with a T shirt on working on the cars. I love this weather. The Grand prix needed a oil change and an air filter.

Added a quart of oil (only 2k into this change wtf) and had to fill the coolant reservoir. I think the day I buy a new car this one is gonna get one last drive where I beat the holy living crap out of it.
