    There was one '00 and one '02 9-3 at the junkyard, both automatics, so I headed over there and grabbed both of their valve bodies because why not. It was not so difficult - in all seriousness the...

    The maiden voyage of the $760 9-3 did not go terribly well. It started off really strong - 12 miles of zero issues, everything doing exactly what it should and being actually quite pleasant to drive....

    They are, but I can understand how at face value someone is staring down $1k to keep old vs. $1k for four months of new. Nobody really considers Month 5 (through 60) anyway. It's so far away!

    So the latest work-related vehicle to come into my life is a 2001 Xterra. I'm on the periphery of this - I didn't source it and I'm not responsible for keeping it, but I did end up with the dubious...

    Got the tiny first round of parts in... three O-rings and some Loctite 518. It was underwhelming.

    But, it was enough to put the oil pan back on, so that's good. One O-ring for the oil pickup tube...

    Hopefully. The 9-3 is a collection of expensive repairs, you just hope you find the right intersection of price and needs. Like a lot of high line cars, I suppose. So far, things seem pretty good....

    Well, no word from the seller on a time for tomorrow, so maybe it's off. Never know with weirdos selling cheap cars. ;)

    Also, USPS DOUBLE BUNGLED my damned package.

    BLOODY HELL! USPS has bungled the freakin' washer nozzle package.

    Got the AEM WBO2, though, so at least I can do that wiring tonight and get on with putting the SPG's interior back together.

    I believe so, yeah. Not really sure why, since Saab had an automatic in the 9-5 Aero. Same engine, same transmission. Weird. It doesn't affect me, I just don't understand the logic.
