Found and repaired a cracked vacuum line to the cruise control which got rid of a ticking noise coming from that area... Have not driven yet enough to see if this addresses the low fuel economy issue that has cropped up recently. New mufflers are next on the list. Then passenger blower motor and a few blend motor issues to tackle... The fun continues!!!

Turns out the vacuum line fix did address the low fuel economy issue, now back to the usual low mpg...

I finally fixed the gas door actuator only because the back up string finally snapped. Lol.
I should of done it earlier, it was a piece of cake. Just a corroded connector.

For those of you who ever pull there motor I found a little trick to get at the upper bolts from the tranny to the engine

I removed the motor mounts and let the engine drop back down

The engine now tilted forward giving way more room to get at the bolts.

And I was just proud of myself for replacing the back wiper and starting replacement of the rear light guards. Wow fastercat, nice work. Love the engine leveler, always a nice tool to have.

Serpentine belt broke, got new belt, went through the hellacious experience of fishing it through, discovered that the tension pulley is flapping, cursed, ordered a new set of pulleys. No fun in the snow for me tomorrow.

Got the parts, took another look. The bolt snapped off on the tensioner. Hmm, now what to do?
