Hey peoples not much has been happening with the car apart from getting dirty inside with the kids and all lol, but went to upullit here in adelaide and got a EL air intake to replace the EF one regardless of the talk about being it more restricted, I'm finding it better then the EF one and defiantly better looking, couldnt find a BA or AU one at the wreckers also etc,

Also basically still trying to get money for new tyres/wheels and need to get the aircon done soon with the hot weather coming and 3 kids and weather don't mix!, has a leak so finding out how much it gonna cost to get fixed etc (scared has its under the dash!),

also plan to install a towbar with trans cooler, get the trans serviced has I believe its acting up and I have a rattle from it, it not the torque converter bolts has I check them the other weekend and all were tight, thinking it may be the flex plate bolts :( anyways will figger it out,

other things also are the door lock, rear left door handle clip broken, just the little things etc

cheers.

I have used these guys before when in need of decent tires in a hurry and short of funds..
http://usedtyremart.com.au/index.html They are very reasonably priced and I would recommend them to anyone. I have only ever had 1 issue with one of their tires and the replaced it the same day. Best to go on a weekday morning if possible as they get bloody busy on a weekend. Also I'd advise calling beforehand to make sure they have the size you want in stock.

Hey guys how hard is it to remove the condensor and drier? May need to do it has the leak could be there, I understand the front bumper needs to come off, so after that just unbolt them etc?

Getting someone to come out and pressure test it cost is $55, and if it is the condensor gonna just replace it myself. If not that could be the compressor best case scenerio etc.

Thanks.

Hey guys not much has happen with the car except I'm just under 2000kms to the 300,000kms club :),

currently have a bad leaking sump gasket :(, so will need to attend to that tomorrow to see if the bolts have just came loose or if the sump gasket (cork :() has failed etc, which more likely will be the case, might try the kframe method for that since I have the crane etc, pitty there is no rubber one piece ones left.

also trans still not acting right might try to replace Inhibitor switch and the speed reducer has I read that can course it problems, and maybe the map sensor also.
