Last night it read 3.26V. Had the charger on it overnight and it read 3.4V after 12 hours. (It is a maintenance charger but it has been useful for batteries above 9V but not at 3.2V) Called AAA out and he gave it a 50/50 chance after it got a better charge. At 5+ years old, I figured it was going to come due so the decision was made to replace it. $118 later.

Don't know what it is, the neg terminal is smaller so the clamp was loose when snugged up. Easily fixed but I've noticed on the last several batteries, the neg terminals seem to be incrementally smaller and smaller.

Well, I took my LS out for a 500 mile working trip making 25 mpg. What a wonderful car this is.

I replaced my engine coolant temperature sensor... seems to have a bit more pep... I'll see if my mileage improves from about 15.5 mpg.

Ok so I was getting water in the trunk, used the hose to find where it came from and it appear to come from under the seal near the light on the driver side.

So today I removed the seal cleaned everything with adhesive remover and use 3M 80119 Weatherstrip Adhesive and hope it will work.

Test without seal (trunk open) didn't show any infiltration so I'm confident it will be good.

Default My next unecessary modification, part II

So I finally got rid of my 90's-era upturned, elbow-style Magnaflow tips and replaced them with these more modern tips. Has a BMW or Audi look to them I think.
