Well, the car is on its second HV battery. I'm sure the inverter will let go soon too, lol. But I agree, it's not what I expected either!
It runs. Got her all buttoned up about 20 mins ago and took on a short test drive. Topped coolant and oil off. Motor sounded like crap...
Fuel injector washers arrived at dealership today. Picking them up, and then going to class until 9pm. Hoping to have time to button her up on...
I'm $140 into my HG repair so far. It's a super low cost gamble before dropping $1,000+ for a newer motor.
So recent developments.
First off, before I say, tell me if you can figure out (by using the pictures) why the car was unable to be completely...
So, I've decided to forego a water pump for now. And here's my rationale:

I tried Rustoleum 2x clear in the past on headlights. Lasted about 11 months before I was back to square one. Certainly wasn't worth all the prep....
From those that have actually done it, when using an OEM HG, do I need to use a gasket sealant at all?
Why didn't you tell me in advance?? :whistle:
I don't consider your reply to be sidetracking at all. I want answers on why a HG would fail on a seemingly healthy car that wasn't overheating or...
