Hmmmmm.....lets see here. Not much really.

- Driver's side axle seal is leaking for the third time. Part is at the dealer I just need to get there to have them replace it under warranty.

- Oil pan gasket is seeping ever so slightly. I have a new pan gasket at the house ready to go. Along with oil/filter and a new charge pipe, since my factory one is a bit rusty.

- Right rear strut was blown almost three weeks ago en route to a car show. I ordered the two rears and new strut mounts today, they'll be here tomorrow. :)

- I need to rewire my underbody lights. This isn't a major thing, but one of the wires came loose and the drive belt shredded it. So I need to tear it apart and solder everything back together so it will all work again. Again, not major and not high on my priority list. I did buy a new tube though so I will fix them eventually.

- Stupid wideband. I bought it used and the sensor is bad. My solution for this may just be throwing it, we shall see, time will tell.

Really I think thats about it. I have everything needed to fix these problems except time and good temperatures. Its been far too hot and humid here to even bother trying. Damned air quality alerts.

My 2000 SE:
1. Electrical problem(ground wires redone but problem still there)
2. Oil pan seal is leaking ever so slowly need a new pan
3. Comp Cam needs to be installed
4. Re-seal the Spark plug tubes
5. new tires
6. install AEM CAI
7. replace struts, strut mounts and springs
8. replace rotors
9. replace all bushings in the suspension
10. replace muffler with new one
11. replace foggy headlights with new ones from modern performance
12. replace stock radio with aftermarket
13. replace speakers with aftermarket ones

I think that's it. Anything that is suspension, drivetrain and powertrain is numero uno on list to get fixed before I move.
