Been working on my transmission electrical issue crawling around under it cleaning grounds and decided to take the dog for a walk in the old growth forest that’s a 20 minute walk from my front door.

Beautiful. I sure hope that one doesn't catch on fire!

Solved a coolant leak fingers crossed as it didn’t show up in a few days, turned out to be the reservoir cap out of everything!

Noticed some moisture on driver side of rad. All hoses are new so I'm thinking the rad gave out. Got this for it's replacement today and a new ambient air temp sensor as well. Going to install it Saturday morning
When mine went it cracked on the driver side and pissed over most of the stuff under the hood around it. Lasted 195,000 I think.

Yeah. I will know for sure Saturday morning. I don't see why anything else would be leaking coolant on that side all of a sudden. I replaced all new hoses back in Jan when I did the water pump

I think the most common crack is usually under or below the upper rad inlet. Someone once explained that happens from running a radiator low on coolant and a heat pocket forming under there building pressure and steam. Made sense the way he explained it. That's exactly what happened to mine.

That's what I meant. Sorry I didn't explain better.
Finally did my front brakes.

I didn't get an after pic. I cleaned off the grease on the boots, and I installed the new abs sensor. Now I'm getting an abs code for the ps! I bedded in the new brakes. Stops amazing now! Now I just need to get motivated enough to swap out the ps abs sensor.
Should have just done the bearings. Not much more expensive. Includes the abs sensor. Get timkens

Get rid of that rusty crap. Mm shiny

I had to do the ds maybe 4-5 years ago, HOLY HELL was it a pita! Lots of rusty parts.
It's not rust, it's patina lol. That's "in" now.

So you just replaced a 4 to 5 year old DS abs sensor? That seems early. What brand bearing did you get? The bearing failing will often show up as an abs sensor fault.
