HOLY **%&! I wish my paint had half the luster yours does! I forgot mine was even black due to all the love-bug guts. Must have been one pampered and garaged princess!! Enjoy it!

Default sorry haven't gotten back in a while. been in Destin Fl

A lot of questions to answer. 1st- the 0525 is May 25 and erin is my 7yr old daughter. The car was garaged and well kept when I got it about 14 months ago with 39,000 miles on it. The first time I slid under to change the oil, and still today, everything- even the exhaust looks brand new still. 2nd- the pictures were taken about 15 minutes after an exhausting wax job and took alot of elbow grease to get the bugs off mine too. But to be honest, if anyone knows someone who would accidently set fire to it I wouldn't be too sad right about now.. It'* 10 things after another with this beauty. It now has 57,xxx miles and today I replaced the second window regulator in 3 months, about two months ago I had the pressure solenoid in the tranny replaced ($380) only for the same symptoms to return only 2 weeks later, and the mechanic tells me it must be something else because he has never ran into the revised part failing after he has changed it before. Not to mention the dealship I got the part from won't cover any of it so I am going to have to pay the full amount again!! The check engine light stays on saying it is running lean, which I changed the o2 sensor and had the car hooked to a Mac scan tool and it shows both are working right, but the fuel pump is only putting out 42psi. I work at Advance Auto Parts and bought a new Master brand fuel pump and installed it only to find it only put out 42psi also. So after having to cut the wiring harness to put the new pump in, I had to resplice my factory harness back together and put the OE pump back in and am now looking for another pump, preferrably one that is going to put out the 48psi it takes to keep the check engine light off if anyone knows where I can get a good deal on one that would be great info to me right now. Don't take me too serious, I love the car, it looks awesome and I take great pride when someone says "What Year Is It", and their jaws drop open when i say "2000",but this is one HIGH maintance girl. I also have replaced the steering wheel position sensor and every now and then when you slow down pretty hard and turn while braking I lose power steering, any thoughts?? Well sorry th o go on and on but I really need to vent before I put a wrench threw her forehead. Thanks for all the compliments and all for your guys cars look awesome too! Hope to see some kinda Bonne show come close to Ashland ky soon so I can meet some of you guys in person.
God Bless
Joe

May want to check the fuel pressure regulator as well... see if you have any bleed off..

also what is the pressure with the Ignition on engine off?

Go ahead and start a thread in 00-05 about the fuel pressure issues you are having and what you have done to correct them..

We'll see what we can come up with


Car looks great

I was thinking of changing the regulator next before I changed the pump again.
The wax is Eagle One Wet in the black bottle. It is easy on- easier off. Thinking about putting a second coat on to see if I could actually blind myself.
