    I drifted it in the snow a few days ago. I think I'll clean the interior today. Trans fluid and oil change soon.

    I changed the power steering cooler since it was leaking.

    I didn't know anything had a power steering cooler from the factory. I've only seen one fitted to a drift car.

    I took some things off, broke a lot of bolts, and got frustrated at it.

    I went to fix some stuff on my brothers Peugeot 308. At the same time, my friend (who drives a VW Golf) is currently in a hospital after his car rear-ended a truck. Apparently he was driving too fast and he lost grip.

    I went mudding and broke my suspension on my WRX. Something is clunking. I checked all of my bushings, so I think the shaft to my McPherson strut is loose. Time to tear it apart :F I almost had to break out the winch too, full sized trucks were abandoned in the mud.

    The other day my Mountaineer started having an issue with the heat going cold at idle. It was about half a gallon low on coolant. Not sure where its going. No detectable leaks.

    You do a block test yet? I just recently found out my Regal has a headgasket leak and haven't been able to drive it.

    That yellow fluid is originally blue, but turns yellow if exhaust gasses pass through it. You remove the radiator cap and put the end of the tester in the radiator while the car is running with the thermostat open.

    X-post from General Discussion:

    So my 528’s acting up.

    I changed the fouled iridium plugs for Bosch copper/silver ones, which are closer to factory spec. The gap is 0.8mm while factory specs are about 0.7mm.

    The car started, but refused to idle, it stalled, and now it won’t start again.

    Fuel pressure is fine, air filter is all good, intake boot and AFM are attached.

    Now the car tries to run backwards and only runs when the distributor is messed with.

    No obvious vacuum issues

    L-Jetronic was co-developed with Lucas and I can see why.

    What do you think is wrong with it?

    Why did the plugs foul? Are you running ethanol free? Were there any similar issues before you changed anything?
