GOOD LUCK!!!! And get 'er done! Student Loans are a bitch and soemtimes you don't add it all up as you get an education. My daughter finally got through 8 years of college and her vets license. It will take a decade of tightening the belt to pay it off.

I've kept my loans under control, been paying cash for a while now. All the sudden the bank just calls and says I owe them interest. I was under the impression that just got tacked onto the bill.

Ah well.. As long as I get this one sealed up all will be good under my hood. It swallowed another reservoir full of coolant, hopefully that'* all making it outside of the engine.

Trust me, neither can I. I was hoping after I did all that work on the SLE the first time it would just be a change the oil every once in a while and add gas kinda deal. 4 sets of coolant elbows and who knows how many gallons of dex later, I'm really missing the SSEi. = p

Heh.. Add left front wheel hub to the list of things to do. Luckily I've got the puller and a brand new Timken, unfortunately they are back home and I didn't realize I needed them till I had already left.

Go figure.

Got up early this morning and got the insurance for both cars taken care of, updated the insurance on the SLE and added the SSEi on with storage insurance since I found out it will actually lower my bill.

Started tearing down, off comes the fuel rail

Off comes the UIM. Hmm.. got a little oil in there and I was just in here about 6 months ago. Guess we'll throw a little more locktite on the bolts.

As for the oil, I would check the PCV valve, oil can come from there.

The elbow looks like it'* compressed, like something isn't lining up right.

You could have put something down for you little helper.
