When I had posted that:
(Old photo from 2014, it was convenient.)
My 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis Station Wagon needed the fuel lines replaced again, as in 2020 I put 3/8 line on, which was too big. The fuel pump couldn’t keep up with those large lines.
Also, the hood wouldn’t stay shut.
Well, I recently replaced the majority of the fuel line again with 5/16ths line (it’s 3/8ths by the tank,) and I just got done fixing the hood problem. The hood issue was simple: the latch had just loosened a bit, and the latch was pushed to the left just far enough to not close. I just needed to loosen the latch, and attach it in the right place. The hood release cable didn’t need replaced, thankfully.
I was going to fix the oil dipstick tube, but it’s not necessary now, and leaving it undone may help me replace one spark plug & wire easier anyway.
I just need to re-attach some final parts at the gas tank filler tube, then I’d like to fix the engine fan shroud (it’s split at the top and the fan hits it, making noise) and then I’m nearly ready to try driving the Wagon; a little cleaning, and we’ll see how the car fares now with its new fuel lines.
As for the 1999 Suburban K2500 6.5 T.D.:
I still haven’t replaced the panels on the side, but I did replace some of the fuel lines as one of my more recent repairs. I then pulled it out of the garage, and pulled it back in without putting the front drive shaft on. -(\ Anyhow, since I jammed the transmission shift linkage and drive shaft together _and then broke the steering column shifter again, the car sat for a while until I had the obvious enough idea to just hit the silly drive shaft with a hammer, to move it back in position. So now the drive shaft’s not jammed, but the interior’s a mess while I wait for parts.
On the 2005 Explorer:
I got new tires 2 months ago, replacing the oversized ones (that were about 30.1” in diameter) with a smaller size that are OEM spec. The new tires are about 29” in diameter. and these new ones actually get 1 MPG better mileage. Going from 17.5 to 18.5 MPG is still 1 gallon every 400 miles; 2.5 gallons every 1,000 miles. Every little bit helps in this low MPG range.
I also had the fuel filter replaced yesterday, for $35, at Monroe Muffler. I couldn’t figure out how to use a “quick disconnect” filter even with a video, so I just had them do it. I cut open the old filter, and it didn’t look too bad. I’ll probably never change a fuel filter on this car again.
