I replaced slip yoke.  The old one had a temporary fix.  Would you do this if you had to get the vehicle back on the road?

Replaced the perished passengers side motor mount on my SRX. What a pain. I was going to do the driver's side too, but as best as I can tell the only ways to get the mount out are (1) remove the catalytic converter, which unbolts from the top, not the bottom and so is a major pain in the ass to get to (2) drop the entire front subframe assembly or (3) maybe by removing the front half-shaft (I have an AWD model), but I am not sure even then I would have the clearance.

Fortunately it does not appear that it actually needs replacing (I got as far as actually disconnecting it and its bracket, which is how we discovered it can't be maneuvered out (I had the engine lifted as high as it could go)

Just changed the oil in my 2015 Toyota Taco.

If it sounds like I know what I'm talking about, it's because I cut and pasted from someone else.

replaced fuel pressure solenoid/fuel rail on 05 sprinter van. van started dying at stops and gave me code p2099 fuel quantity control valve - short to ground.
went through all of the electrical tests and verified the circuits back to the ecu, all checked out good.
checked fuel pressure while running and driving. pressure was falling below 300bar at idle and shutting off the van.
checked fuel injector leak by to the fuel return hose. checked out good.
checked low pressure fuel supply to the high pressure pump. checked out good.
checked leak by at the fuel pressure solenoid. bingo. got about 20ml of fuel past the solenoid with engine cranking.
solenoind should be closed and no fuel should get by. leaking solenoid allowed pressure in the fuel rail to drop at idle when the high pressure pump wasnt supplying enough volume to compensate for the leakage.

this is a turbodiesel with high pressure fuel injection and a mercedes ECU with lots of mercedes specific manufacturer only codes. a scanner that is capable of reading the mercedes codes is required. that, and access to all of the factory service data is the only way to figure these things out.

i prefer the dead simple old mechanical systems of the SOHC's. but those old systems arent gonna get me 22mpg out of a giant cargo van that weighs 6,000lbs. trade offs. this has been the most useful vehicle i have ever owned and also the most maintenance to keep it on the road.

Replaced the right front turn bulb and right side backup light and the engine air filter on my SRX.

Ordinarily a turn bulb replacement would be simple, right? Not on my car, I had to remove the fender liner and the headlight assembly, which means part of the front bumper cap. Then once the turn signal/fog light assembly is out, there are 6, SIX!, screws that have to come out to remove the rear cover to finally be able to remove the bulb housing. What should have been a 20 minute job took 90. Damn engineers.

Nope. Even when you pull the wheel well liner you can't get to it because not all the tiny screws that hold the back cover on the assembly are accessible. You have to completely remove the light.

Got the Corvette interior back together, new dash pad, gauge bezel, Alpine head unit, amp and Infinity speakers. 






Now I have a little issue with the amp overheating and cutting off. WTF!

Anything bike related is totally on the "back burner" lately. Since I started tearing into the Pagoda SL, I have been more or less consumed with wrenching on this.
Took the head off to make sure everything inside the motor was OK after sitting for 20 years.
Was quite surprised about the good condition. Taking all the carbon deposits off and reworking the head and valves.

That's an oddly shaped combustion chamber.

Squish and providing room for the valves. Exhaust valve sits at the oval extension.

like the mecanic straight 6 piston pump ..it must have oil in the cam housing(like all old bosch diesel pumps) ..does it have  direkt injektionin the combustion champer..or is it a injektor pr cylender, in the intake manifold.-.renember Peugeot had somthing simular..for a short time

Daimler Benz went from direct to port fuel injection with the 61/62 models. 300SL Gullwing was the last direct FI application.
