onto the rear! jacked it up, took off the rims, and decided to try and look at the brake shoes.... bad idea.. small side project!
the rear drums are on there pretty damn hard, the shoes are coming out with the drum, thats bad right?? could there be a build up of rust behind where the shoes rotate?

well.... i tried pulling my car out of the garage... and i turn the key, NO POWER


tried charging it


but it was 90% empty, and i'm pretty sure i fried it... i'll see tommorow...

over the last month ive had this plugged in, it has a few led's on it, could this thing ever draw enough power to drain my battery in a month?

if my battery ends up fubar, what is a good replacement? optima redtop? or just another standard battery

one step forward, two steps back......

the new battery works great, and makes the enginebay look much nicer, doesn't make the dash look any nicer....

oil light and a P0141 code (02 sensor bank1 sensor2 heater circuit)

so i got the car back into the garage to do the finishing touches on it,
cleaned and oiled the hoodlatch (would rarely work)
broke the grill mounts ...more junkyard adventures?
fixed all the pinched wires and hose for the hatch
installed the front trash flaps.


i was going to clean the IACV untill i couldn't find it... i looked for a tutorial on how to clean it... but i cant find it!! i guess because i've got the ej18 intake? anyways i know this isn't a thread for finding out answers but HEY whatever

which is the IACV?


looks way better with the winter tires and trashflaps.

top one should be you iacv..bottom should be your tps. also, i have one of those bluetooth odb II adaptors and i always unplug it at night, the ecu is still giving it power with the car off so if your battery isnt so great that does contribute drainage.
you can get self heating o2 sensors super cheap online, also if yours is a manual trans id get a tach, obd adapter does it but its nice having a real guage..
p.s. love the homemade flaps i may just do that myself

well i brought the car out of the garage and around the block to my front yard again today and found this.
the idle now sits higher than before and more frequent (im going to reclean the IACV and then clean the Maf sensor and throttle body and all parts associated)

the low oil pressure light slowly illuminates (opposite of dimming) but never fully came on and was after the car ran for a few minutes out of a heated garage (opperating temp)

oh and next time i'll get a video of all this... keep forgeting

on the bright side!
trash flaps work great,
wiring is almost done
rear brake hardware is all installed (i broke a piece earlier)

If the idle is higher, you need a new iacv, cleaning it won't do much of anything

well, i decided to go the cheap route and buy some MAF cleaner aswell as some TB cleaner first. the intake and filter are fairly clean, only a little dusty, as i got to the giant ugly plenum lookin thing, it got a little more dirty, by the time the throttle body was off things looked pretty gross... heres what i found

intake side, fairly clean


engine side, not so much



inside the intake. i'm pretty sure the coolant came from me disconecting the hoses from the TB.




---
i'm wondering if thats even the right gasket for the TB, it probably is, but its kinda weird how that cut-out area on the top isn't routed for better air flow, also howcome there are water jackets around the TB??!?!? cars are weird compared to motorcycles

not sure about the water jackets or coolant, but the gasket that bolts to the itake manifold is a little goofy, i just noticed that the other night. mine has the proper bolt holes and seal area but seems too big, a large tab sticks up. but i do have the 2.2 and you have the 1.8 so that could be different. if you havent, you should get a shop manual like haynes or chilton. i paid $25 for mine and the time and money ive saved is probably 10 times that.

Coolant is routed through the TB to heat it up quicker and keep it from sticking in cold weather. That's the theory anyway...

well ITS FIXED! no low oil pressure light, no hanging idle!
i took the intake apart up to the throttle body and cleaned it, also replaced the oil pressure sending unit.
