But yeah definitely let me know that'd be great
coolant explodes from the car
no fuel rail at all
bunch of tools behind grill, on top of bumper support
tons of partially done body work
needs paint like our economy needs help
no grill (hence all the fallen tools)
no stereo (stolen last year, replacement hasn't left its box)
cashed out control arm bushings (replacements came in today)
fancy 3" exhausts meet with a 2.5" connection
ugly wheels (new hotness in living room)
poor alignment (fresh, but by an idiot)

There's a rattle coming from underneath my car!! But I'm gonna give it a look and check it on Monday whm I install my dogbone
I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=40.021822,-82.879486
This car ran out of gas, again, what the hell is wrong with my car, it doesn't like gas or something?!
So far, 2 hrs wasted in Manhattan. So, 2+ hrs longer to get to FL, since I'm still stuck here waiting for roadside ass.
This is the second time I ran out of gas.
Thought I could make it from Sunnyside to NY (thru Hollland Tunnel) with a buried E needle, so I pretty much FAILED!
my R is sad because of the dark,stormy weather that's rolling in.
i was going to take him to Atco for the Punch Buggy show...getting set to storm any minute nowugh!

CEL came on Friday evening after stopping at the store to pickup beer for the weekend:
2 Faults Found:

P1089 - 001 - Upper Limit Exceeded - Intermittent - MIL ON
16825 - EVAP Emission Control Sys: Incorrect Flow
P0441 - 002 - Lower Limit Exceeded - Intermittent
I cleared them to see if they return.
Also, since replacing my rotors and pads (Adams Rotors w/StopTech Street Performance Pads) I get a "Check Brake Pads" warning every couple of days. It's there for one drive then goes away for a few days or a week before returning.
I just got my R road worthy again after sitting in the barracks parking lot... or at least i thought! coming off post as i merge on to autobahn 299 i get on it a little, and this is where my problems start. First thing that happens is the battery light comes on. I pull over to give it he once over and make sure it was good and there was nothing wrong. When i started the car it went away but shortly returned so i continued on my way thinking that i must be a fuse. On the ride out i notice the sound from my stereo wasn't quite as loud and my subs weren't hitting but maybe every few beets (battery light still on) so i just shut off the radio and when i park i notice that the idle is kicked up about 1100 and not going down even with the ac and other accessories off. i say screw it and UN-plug my new amp that i put in earlier in the day and my world effectively goes from containable to catastrophic. I turn the car back on, idle goes back up and now i have multiple lights on my dash.... ECU, Air bag, ABS, battery(still),and check engine. As I'm trying to figure out what to do the headlights stat to dim and so does the dash lights as the car starts to sputter for life. I was stuck in some German bus station parking lot for 4 hrs till i got a ride home... i am thinking that it might be the alternator but i hope its the coil packs. Any ever experience any of this I really need some help to figure this one out...
I felt serious 'tiny' vibrations through the pedals and steering wheel. Like when your car is idling and the fans turn on and it goes into that power surge mode.
No idea what's broken/breaking/exploded/leaking... I can't only hope it'll last until my other car is running and I can start fixing stuff.
