@dirtmudd  Scary, but you've got it covered!

Fingers crossed that it is that simplest, least expensive byproduct of using a little much fuel system cleaner. I'd bet it's still running the factory fuel filter. Or maybe just using it, haven't done that in a while! & O2 sensors just bring out the four letter words. The way he treats his rides I would not expect anything more.

Yep I might have been "too kind" thinking if one treatment is good two should be great.  May have fixed one problem while creating another.  Hope the shop can see it on Monday.

@Tarheel Nice pics Chuck. There's a pic of a young Danica Patrick in a bikini standing next to a Bimmer somewhere.

@Tarheel I hope it is quick easy fix for you.

I've had an airbag light on on my 2015 F150 for 4 weeks now. Heading into dealership this coming Friday for a diag.

To all here,  Happy New Year a day late...LOL...

Got some Black Label Society playing and a few drinks flowing.

I'm still trying to break in these RP's... They are right nice little speakers... especially for their size.

... and I'm still under my budgeted $2000 for stereo . Especially since I bought the RP's brand new... Seeing them at $440 sealed the deal on them.. With the LS, H/K 630 and new RP600M's, I'm in $1900.  Granted, I am using an old Sony receiver with the RP's.. I got 2 decent sound systems for the money. The Sony is rated 110W/ch in 2channel.

What would be the gain if I bi-amped the RP's. I'm not running a sub with them. They give plenty of bass after listening to R15M's for 2 years. They will pin you to the wall in this 12 X 12 room. Happy?   oh hell yes

 

Packed up the R15's up for the trip to their new home. I spose I should go with them and set up the stereo for this gal..

 

Hey...

Any of you have static cause problems... particularly on CD/DVD players?  I remember boards for the computer scoring system, at the bowling alley, coming in anti-static packaging...

----------------------------------------------

 

We were talking about a Griswald Christmas display.. I took a cruise around town, that's a short trip here....  what I saw in relation to my lights... Yeah. I guess I'm the Griswald of town.

I drove "out of town"/up the hill... to a place on the road where I can see cars coming into town a mile before they reach "City Limits"... Looking toward town, I cannot see our house, even with the lights. Actually, I can see cars 2 miles before they get here.. See them coming down the hill.

 

I am liking this Glenfiddich.   Good sippin' stuff.

Just enough snow on the trees to be beautiful, not enough to cause problems.  Didn’t Bing Crosby sing about dreaming of a “White January 3rd,” in Detroit or was it Dave Bing?

Chuck,

You quoted it too quickly.  I was busy twisting the forum’s arm.  It’s there now.

 

I was pulling for the Tarheels last night, but to no avail.  The announcers mentioned that Mac Brown reminded his players the last time UNC football played in a bowl game was 1950, the year before he was born.

We had a $2600 wire repair last week caused by rodents.  Had to pull the dash and evap case to fix everything.   Colder weather drives them into vehicles.  We've done a half dozen or so in the last couple months.  Injector and coil wires are a favorite as well.

When I worked in the service department of a Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, Mercedes, BMW, & Subaru dealership, a customer brought in his Rabbit (another rodent) with a complaint of runaway cruise control.  When we opened the air cleaner, the housing was full of dry dog food.

We see that too.  Popular "homes" are ac housings, air breathers and under the intake manifolds.

We had a truck come in one time with a vibration whenever the ac blower was on.  The customer never mentioned the smell but the inside of the truck was bad enough to make you vomit.  When we pulled the blower we found a family of dead rats.  It liiked like they had been in a salad spinner for a month.  You can use your imagination on what it looked like.
