    Upgrade
    6.7.21 - Brake flush at dealer. Per dealer, there is a flush (just brake lines) and then there is a total replacement (thru entire system) which dealer does not do unless pump etc changed, because very time consuming. I asked for later, but thats not what was done (not surprised). Did notice fluid was much lighter in color - very pale, than original fluid - deep yellow. Suspension next...

    Update: 25 May 2021... 183k
    red triangle, code p ...93. INV coolant PUMP not working, again, after 3 years. Replaced. Runs quieter - yea!

    Needs shocks and back brakes now, too.
    REAR BRAKE shoes, drums cylindar changed. Bro forgot to unplug 12 v - !, ABS & VSC lights on + red brake light. (ugh!). Will jump the 4/13 and take her to mechanic for ? bleeding or teckstream... errrr!

    Last week restored light = sanded and acrylic on front headlamp (wondered if chemicals had anything to do with pump failure???)



    Update. june 2020... covid diy.. my bro and i changed hv battery module 15. new Busbars.
    Shes better now... 2004, 176k.


    Just a citizen
    Interested in knowing my car, and being responsible for its upkeep, without added expense. My brother is the motorhead who helps and God bless him, puts up with (some) of my questions.

    Other Brother taught me how to do my own tuneups & oil changes when i was a poor college student, (chrysler duster) and I have been interested in Car repair ever since. For example.
    Why Toyota charges so much just to change the cabin filter is beyond me... sad because they would get a lot more business if dealer cost was just dang reasonable.

    For the record, my sister in law to be and I wanted to take car shop in high school, but school would not let us. They gave us carpentry instead. Many years later we learned why they said no - teacher swore like a sailor (no offense to sailors). Seems funny now, except all the money I could have saved for various and sundry DIY.

    Thank you for having this excellent forum!
