Rewired 02 sensor ( no more CEL/ better gas mileage), New NGK Iridiums
, and resealed oil pan gasket again. 4th time i think.... maybe more, and brand new front tires
New used JDM Aristo yellow fogs ordered to replace my broken one in the front -__-'. Steering rack bushings and toe arms real real soon, so no more stupid tire wear and vibrations. I may be young, low, and do stupid things but slowly but surely my cars becoming more and more reliable. It may LOOK like a beat up car thats not being taken care of but my service records indicate otherwise. Driven from california to vegas and back 4 times already and no problems at all.
Update: 3/26/15 I did my coolant flush, new thermostat, new radiator fan switch, and spray painted my black fender
I know the car doesn't seem to change all that much, but i really would appreciate anything you guys would like to add, constructive criticism.
Updates 2/21/15 : So i stopped buying mods, and decided to save up and just save my money until i have a good savings account and just fix and work on maintenance as finance permits. I have only been getting 300 paychecks this passed winter so i was dead broke, but i managed to get a lot knocked out on this car! my list is getting smaller and smaller by the month, As low as this car is, its very very reliable. 237K on the odometer and the cars taking everything i give to it including a lot of my sheer stupidity. Again maintenance is very very close to getting caught up, and I'm happy with it.
