I seafoamed it and replaced the plugs and ignition cables and threw in my old CAI and im still at 23 MPG. My 00 MTX ran like crap and overheated about every o...

ah sound like fun especially with the snow tomorrow!

I tested the battery with my multimeter...its at 11.98 when the car isnt started...when its started it drops to 11.02 and when the lights are on its down to 10.58 so it doesnt seem like power is coming from the alternator at all.

I had the same problem and it was the struts. You can just check your tires for uneven wearing and you will know if its the struts.

Those thermostat housing units from Autozone are the worse. That was the 4th one I have had to replace...after 6 months they all seems to crack on the bottom and then coolant starts spraying out. The right size of my engine is now painted orange.

I got the intake manifold unbolted today, but it looks like I am going to need to remove the wires from the starter to take it out. That looks like a PITA.

Ah and one more thing. I used a razor to make the head and block surface as smooth as I can, but I am not satisfied. Should I also try 1000 grit sandpaper? And for the head gasket so I apply abt silicone bead to it or just lay it as is?
