The neglected Neon sits pushed to the corner of the garage needing a new alternator and valve cover gasket before Gingerman.
The new to me tow vehicle with 200k miles takes center stage in the garage and the maintenance items being addressed make the mailman, fedex, and UPS man wonder what and the hell is going on in the garage. It's an AZ truck so rust and seized bolts haven't been an issue, but the power steering fluid and engine oil that has leaked out and collect AZ dust makes for quite the mess.
rebuilding front suspension and steering
new steering gear and power steering pump, hoses
wheel bearings all around
shocks all around
plugs and wires
oil pump and oil pan gasket
front engine cover gaskets
valve cover gaskets
all fluids and filters
A project that truly feels like pulling a thread on a sweater....
