Traded my 07 SV6 at 142xxx km's on an 06 SSV at 42xxx km's.
Averaging just over 4,000km a year? DAYUM! That's a good find.
And I thought my '09 with 37 on it was low???????????
wondered why it was idling eratically and randomly going high, and at other times when it would come down was going lower then normal idle.
had a think about it and thought it could be to do with the IAC valve.
then went hang on, it could also be some vacuum issue.
opened up the bonnet and had a look at the throttle body.
yup, the little hose that connects up to it was just sitting there.
now to find a perma fix.
Replaced a split radiator header tank on the Mrs's Cruze and finished rust sealing the rear floor pans on the HG.
We gave our baby a tank of 91.
I finished swapping my el cheapo 30W RMS Pioneer front speakers for a set of these
Also went to some extra effort on the install to help the quality of sound
Finally after several revisions of my sound system components, I am now happy with the quality of sound.
I've gone through a couple of head units, 3 sets of rear speakers, 2 sets of front speakers and added an amp
Also tidied up some of the hoses and wiring on the engine after my recent alloy head upgrade.
Gave it a wash, taking it out for a decent drive tomorrow.
Then need to book it in to get the tune tweaked to optimise the alloy heads and increased comp
serviced the brakes. Cleaned and new grease applied. Working much nicer now.
Installed a dash cam
What brand did you buy?
Ive got a navman 680. Not a bad unit . The suction cup is bigger than the camera lol
Caught my kids cleaning it with steel wool... :$
Pulled the drivers seat out of the ute, had a mate put in a new seat foam, put the seat back in, connected electrics (it all works) and marvelled at how comfortable the seat is now.
Got it road worthied.
new rubber for the rear, were due for a change, but was forced due to one not holding air over night.
fronts get the same treatment next week.
Tried to replace a injector rail was going well until I started to strip the top inlet manifold bolt, forgot I removed the PCV spring and then dropped the inlet manifold bolt back into the engine..
Might be job for another year....
Got it rego'd, paid the insurance and put the new custom plates on. Just got to get the LPG sorted out (it has a short that means the whole system loses electric power), or I might just rip it all out, detail it and she'll be sweet!
put some fuel into it and drove it a little.
Took it past the 300,000km mark.
Mates vx berlina,
Stripped and restored the headlights,resprayed a clubsport rear bumper for it.
fixed the battery tray and wiring to it, and flushed the rad. still gotta get the front
end together and then pull the back of it apart to fit the clubby bumper.
