I'll be looking for the source of major coolant leak in my 94 Accord EX after work. Gotta love day light savings.

I'm hoping it's just a hose b/c I just replaced the rad, upper and lower rad hoses, t-stat, and output gasket around 2 months ago.

I've got a portable light tower sitting in the back 40 (very similiar to the one pictured) that needs some body work, new fenders, and new lights/wiring.

The driveline on my old 280zx needs u joints so I've pulled it and am going to cut the old ones out.

Yikes! The small hoses on those transverse engines are a PITA to diagnose, change, see, touch. I'd bet on one of those, a heater hose or a bypass or something. Bring a mirror:)

SES like came on this morning in my Saturn. Advance says that it is emissions system related, so I get to hunt for a leak after work or this weekend. Looks like we'll have awesome weather so I'm looking forward to this job!!

New idler pulley and belt tensioner on my Saturn. Then I need to check the outer tie rods and rotate my tires. That's about it. I did get my snowblower put up for summer storage yesterday. Drained the fuel, changed the oil. checked/gapped the plug, lubed the chain and adjusted the belts. Got the lawn mower ready to go too. Changed the oil, made sure the air filter and the fuel passages were clean. Just have to gas and go. I think this weekend I'll be doing a tune up on a neighbor's snowblower too.

My speed bleeders are waiting for me at home, but I'm not sure if I'll get to finishing the brake bleeding today.

Just put speed bleeders on the miata a few weeks ago. Well worth the money.

If I bother to do anything today I'll fix the driver's side door speaker in the miata. The stupid wire has come loose again so I'm just going to solder the damn things to the speaker.

Ahhh, I wish I still had the time to wrench myself. Maybe when the kids leave home and I retire. No time, no time.

Update:
My truck needs new BALLS...
ball joints that is. They are big and ugly, and although I know the wierding ways of the hot wrench and sledgehammer, these balls speak of big presses and even more swearing.
Ah yes, "pride of ownership".

Installed Head Up Display (HUD) about 2 weeks ago. Now I feel like a fighter pilot when I drive.
