    WELLLLL i noticed a huge coolant spill under my car, popped the hood and its leaking from the aux water pump, the hose that goes from the coolant resivior near the battery breaks. go to the parts store get a price and its $118, when i shut my hood after i added coolant the hood latch decided to snap on me, and when i go start it the car wont start. :) just another day with the benz

    I charged the AC and it blows cold unless I'm sitting still. I need to do it right and I'm not sure why I never do.

    Make sure the aux fan is coming on. Check your condenser for bugs and debris

    haha, when i pulled the condenser off my car there was a HUGE mud dobber (not sure if that what their actually called, little wasps that make tubular nests from mud and eat spiders) nest that was like 9 tubes wide in between it and my radiator, and tons of dead leaves.
    definitely recommend everyone pull theirs from time to time to clean it out, and keep things cool

    Picked up heater core to coolant pipe O-ring and spring clips to hold the heater box together. God was that stuff so expensive for what it is. All of the spring clips and O-rings could fit in a film canister but cost over $30 for them. Ugh...

    Ordered a oil pan gasket. My oil is leaking like crazy. put a quart in not long ago because my light came on. just put another quart in today.

    Also - I've been using 5w 30 grade oil since I've had the car. What should I use for Summer?

    Yeah its hot as hell here. It works okay, not as good as I'd like but it makes it to where I don't mind driving. I've had cars before without AC here and it was so bad I didn't want to go anywhere.

    I flushed the brakes on my motorcycle today and cursed my car as it continued to run like shit. I beat on it a little and that made it better it seemed. Idk.

    I got the A/C on the 8v down to 42Deg!(Itll be nice to have these coming months) No cheating or any other deal like that. Just plan R134a, No synthetic booster or any of that crap, Im to cheap to buy that stuff.

    Want to light my car on fire because there's this insane squealing coming from the water pump after the inlet flange on the radiator decided to just break off, leaving just enough for me to clamp the hose to while I save up for a replacement. Water pump has less than 500 miles on it.
