Default I didnt alittle bit of preventative maintenance today..

Well over the weekend i gave her an oil change, cleaned EGR valve, cleaned throttle body, replaced the fuel fitler, and O2 sensor. here'* some pics

Heres the old O2 sensor.



This is what i decided to go with late lastnight at walmart.


Getting her jacked up for the fuel filter swap.


Now for the throttle body....you gotta love seeing this. Im pretty sure after 164,000 miles, i had stuff growing in there. lol





After a test spray of throttle body cleaner.


and the finished product.

Yeah I was considering that high mileage mobil 1 oil the other day, but decided to stick with standard mobil one until I see some good stuff about that high mileage stuff.

Nice tb nasty! and woah, original o2? jees. kinda late on that eh? probably will get some great mileage after that!

Yeah that was the original o2,really late. And after getting everything installed. I am getting about 15psi more of oil pressure, which i wasnt expecting and loved seeing. and about the mileage, i was already rocking pretty good gas mileage, probably around 32-33 but not Im getting 32-34 consistently.
