Both tanks on radiator where leaking on the 01 rt so changed radiator and rebuilt ac compressor since it quit engaging due to a bad clutch. 

No longer smells like coolant at operation temperature and AC is a Crisp 42deg at 85° ambient

^Did you put that battery in? That kind is from that discount battery place in Lancaster and I think there's one in Hebron or Heath? Wondering how it's working out for you so far.

Battery is one I put in. These are my favorite. I can get 5-7 years out of these. There is on in heath, I got the same one in omni, white neon, focus, all 3 motorcycles. A+ customer service and never have killed one of these batteries. 

 

They rebuild batteries in Zanesville, they're very local company and I appreciate that.

Ol sable was shifting hard from 1st to second, checked the car for codes, checked all set sensors and line pressure and did a relearn and we are smooth as glass.

 

Also took the rx7 to dinner last night. Lighting was good.

I got an Exit sign/emergency lights battery for my business at the one in Lancaster and the guy was very knowledgeable. I was very impressed with the car battery pricing.

Got one from the one in Lancaster. $100! The Optima that I replaced was cool but not $300 cool (pretty sure I paid like $180 for it back in 2014) like they cost now. Unfortunately I fried my fusible links when I put it in. I don't think it was the battery's fault -- they are by the starter and headers and are 34 years old. So I'll have to get underneath the car this weekend to replace them. I wish GM would have put them by the battery like Ford did.

Just the seat. Hebron Ohio. 

Here is correct link for car. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/581279152894315/

Black neon started running rough, and popped the check engine light. Quick key dance in the parking lot shows a map sensor code. Got the car home and dug out a new map sensor in my pile of parts. Starting taking everything apart to get to it. It was definitely an OEM sensor. It had the paint mark screw sensor and manifold and still have locktight in the threads. New sensor made the car run like a top, I think the old sensor was bad.

Got the light of many butt puckers  

Ordered a sensor from the dealer and got the old one out. It was pissing oil out of the plug so that's a good sign. Decided to not check oil pressure since I am a man who likes to party. 

 

Old sensor and oil filter housing o ring that was leaking. 

Oil filter housing was leaking pretty good, decided to take care of that while I was under it.  

 

2 hours of idling on the hoist, no more leaks that make drops and light never came on. We are good to go. I was a little scared for a moment, didn't wanna pull the oil pan on this car for the first time.

Had a squeak in the front end of iris car along with CV axle throwing grease. 

New axle stabbed in  

Wheel bearing was a touch crunchy feeling and never have seen a wheel bearing rub a CV axle. 

 

Devoped a nice fuel leak, had to re-oring injectors. One just rotted.
