I replaced my tension strut (bushings) and control arms.

I also remove my stiffening plate so I can track down and fix my oil leak.

I canít tell the improvement yet because I get my crappy 235s on.

I have to put my new suspension parts in the rear as well before I can put my new tires on. I cannot wait Iíve been using the 235s for about four months they are just so not me. I donít know how people drive on the spongy tires. Using brakes for cornering? Yeesh. I have a brand new set of 255s Dunlop extra sticky. Back to 45 mile off ramps and 35 mile an hour of corners in the cities. If I tried it with a 235 Iíll be either in a ditch or rolled over or both

Nice work! Newly wrapped headliners make such a big difference to a vehicle's "newness" feel.

However, it didn't go up over 111 degrees so it seems the cooling system is doing it's work, but I read somewhere over here that it should be 108 degrees? Is 111 within range? During driving it hangs around the 108 but it can go up a few degrees.

As a side note, the SAP is even worse now when warm, it runs ofter and it needs revs to get it to turn off again (code P0115 keeps appearing). O2 sensors seems to work fine, no discrepancies in the readings. Would the thermostat be circumspect?

was a nice evening though...

If the car is not getting correct coolant temps, it would logically run the SAP when it shouldn't also needle in dash could be whack.

The temp sensor in my understanding has two outputs so one could be the one you are reading and three other the DME using.

I don't know how to read the other value (or where to confirm the dual output; I read that somewhere not sure which engine it applies to).
