Been puttering on things that needed doing on her.
  • Replaced burnt out bulbs (3rds brake light, front markers) and the interior cabin lights with LEDs.
  • Re-torqued the wheels.
  • Cleaned all the ground and positive connections under the hood and battery terminals.
  • Checked and decided what fluids will need replacing.
  • Checked the air filter.
  • Checked the cabin filter.
  • Check the spark plugs.

Check out the spark plug I pulled:

That's pretty dang worn out!

At least I know it has had copper spark plugs in it for a long time.

Air filter looked almost new. (Guess the previous owner did some things other than just drive it)

Cabin filter was missing.

Both red fluids need changing, in my opinion. Coolant is red but opaque. ATF looks nice and clean on the dip stick, but when you wipe it on clean paper towel it looks dark and dirty.

Shopping list:
  • More LED bulbs
  • Wiper blades
  • Cabin filter
  • Spark plugs
  • Coolant
  • ATF
  • Oil and filter
  • Injector cleaner

To-Do List: (on top of replacing above parts)
  • Brake check/lube.
  • Fix or replace drivers window regulator.
  • Polish/restore headlights.

Oh and yesterday I spent 4 hours shampooing the interior, but I'll get back to that.
