Where did you get your e-clips or whatever they are called from?

Swapped the rotors to the Stoptechs with the street pads.

God the pads are just trash... like it really feels like something isn't even right with my brakes after putting them back on... which.. honestly may be the case.

Been hearing some bubbles through the HVAC at cold starts which goes away when hot. Kinda messed around with that a bit this weekend and tightening up some of the pressure test fittings on the radiator. Still a TON of air moving through the cooling system though, and doesn't seem like it's holding pressure in the top hose. No idea... but It's REALLY pissing me off since it feels like everything I've done to the car in the last year has caused nothing but little annoyances I've done nothing but dealt with.

My suspects are the lower rad hose the battery leaked on and left some marks at, or the radiator cap. I should also check my waterpump housing and the other cooling system parts I touched this summer, but I don't think they are the issue. I hope it's something simple, I really don't feel like putting a huge amount of effort into the car over winter FIXING stuff.

Either way, looks like snow is in the forecast for the weekend and I don't see temps being above the 30s for the next week, so I guess it's time to pull the Rays off and park it in the garage for the next 6 months.

Michigan is depressing for trying to keep cars nice.

I also hate to put the car away with issues... because that means it won't get solved until the spring and I get to waste time trying to debug that when I could be enjoying the car.

Meh.

Time to go back into hibernation where I get to drink beer and poke at electronics in hopes I keep enough motivation with the sun setting before I can leave work to come up with something.

Tossed the typical Autozone pressure tester on there with, as you can imagine, no real results except that it's holding pressure, even at 20psi..


No bubbles, no leaks, nothing.

So the only thing I can try from this test is a new radiator cap... so that's what I bought.


I dunno..

Have you ever vacuum filled the system? My ranger would bubble inside the core whenever I tried to use a no-spill funnel.

Edit: on that same note, pulling the system into a vacuum shows leaks alot better than positive pressure.
