Well the INDY blew the heater core hoses on my way home from work last week, so its off to the shop since I'm tired of crawling around under the dash and engine compartment.
I'm getting too old for this!

On my Berettas, the power steering lines started failing one after another as the cars each hit the same age. Some of these rubber parts definitely have a lifespan. Probably worth-while to change the radiator hoses and flush the coolant on yours, if it hasn't all been done in the last few years...

If I ever reach the point of not being able or willing to work on my own cars, I am totally screwed. I can just picture some lube-tech trying to find the oil filter on the GTU! :P Sorry bud, take the car back off the rack and turn the wheel to the right! No lift needed... :lol:

Found out the wheels I bought, blasted and painted for the truck are the cause of the vibration at highway speed. Took them to get rebalanced and the lip style won't take clip on weights, which is why they recommended the beads the first time. So they used sticky weights on the second try and they hit the calipers...so it's not even driveable.

Ended up buying some stock 16s since they are 12lbs lighter, forged and hub centric unlike the old cast American Racing wheels. Won't look as good, but they'll probably pay for themselves in fuel eventually. Currently stripping, blasting and sanding the peeling clear coat and corrosion off them. Fun job.
