Anyone else? I just hit it today. 2005 6s 5-door with original engine and original auto trans. Bought it new. I've posted a list of repairs I've done in other threads...nothing really major to be honest
Oil changes every 5-10k miles. Spark plugs, coolant flush and tranny "flush" every 2-3 years (60-90k miles) but it's been over 100k since i've done that. Other than that, I just get the brakes and tires replaced when needed. Used a K&N air filter until my mechanic accidentally threw it out a while back. I've never replaced the shocks/struts and I've ignored a other things like O2 sensors (CELs tell me I've been running lean), an oil leak from the main seal (losing about 1qt/1000 miles) and the purge valve . My headliner is stapled to the roof, haha. Here's a list of what I've replaced so far:
both front axles
valve cover gasket
intake manifold gasket
both headlight assemblies
wheel bearings on 1 or 2 wheels
There might be some minor things that forgot about, but that's at least 90% of it.
The body is in great shape, especially considering how long I've had it. It's been garage kept the past 9 years, which helps. The driver side doors have some bubbling rust underneath the black matte frame and the paint on the hood is chipped from all the sandblasting it's gotten from tailgating tractor trailers on highways. No rust anywhere else and I live in PA which uses a lot of salt in the winter!
Poster by the name of andrewlewis8448 is trying to peddle off pictures of cheap eBay knockoff MSDS headers, and scam people out of 400 bucks.
He reached out to me two weeks ago and said he had a set and they were for sale. Sent me pics, never a single pic of them currently, just some photos...
Greetings! Will be finishing my front brakes over weekend.
Can anyone confirm torque specs I found in google:
caliper bracket: 79 ft/lb
caliper: 18-24 ft/lb
Also, do you need thread-lock on any of those bolts?
