Right now, my Mitsubishi Montero is down. It’s nothing catastrophic. I’ve sent the gauge cluster off to be fixed, as I tried “fixing” it myself. Now it’s actually being fixed. The reason I was playing with it was to roll the odometer up to where it should be. A prior owner replaced the gauge cluster at one point and the mileage has been considerably off ever since. I want to put it back where it belongs. At least, close to it.
Though when I was tinkering with Montero stuff recently, I did drop a screw in the valley at the top of the engine. And it landed in a small puddle of oil. So that means I now have a reason to pull the top bits off the engine and take a gander.
On the Jaguar side of the equation, the car is losing oil somewhere. It’s not dripping. It’s not smoking. But my oil gauge once again showed lower and lower pressure. So I checked the oil and it’s pretty empty. And it was just given a fresh oil change about a month or two ago. This is not a good problem. I’m going to pull the plugs and give those an eyeball before I eventually get pissed that I can’t get to the back two, scream and want to throw a tool, and then toss oil in the car and drop it off at the shop while I light money on fire.
Other than that, I can’t complain… how are your project cars going as we close out 2021?
