The Bomb's total miles is about 88k, but I personally just passed 55,555.5 miles.
I was able to take a practice pic, but the camera died just prior to the moment with no where to turn off... bummer for me.:cry:

;)
I managed to take a little video last summer when my 02 Silverado rolled over 200k miles (321868km for you metric types).

Also left my car at my local independent shop today. They programmed my BCM for my fogs, did oil and filter and tire rotation. Currently at 11091mi (17849km)

Started to replace the wiper transmission for the second time, but found I only needed to tighten the wiper arm bolts :rolleyes:
Also re-cleaned my positive battery terminal - for the third time.:(

Oil Change - first one on this car that I did myself. After the dealer raised the CTD oil changes to $99, that made the decision for me (they were at $50 for the longest time, which I could easily justify having them do it versus me laying on my back). Switched to Pennzoil Platinum Euro L with an AC Delco filter.

Also checked the trans fluid on the car while I had it up - had I not done that, it would have been an hour or two endeavor. Instead, it took six. At least I know the fluid level is correct - the trans issues are from something else (probably that it's just a piece of **** transmission). That **** aeroshield is always a nightmare to deal with.

Because a lot of us live in states where half the year is spent driving around in snow, ice and salt? What does it matter to you how clean our vehicles are?

It's 2 degrees outside this morning - you can feel free to go grab a rag and clean our engine bay.

Started feeling a loss of compression while driving so I took my (2014 Eco, 115,000 miles) to the dealer and they told me it needed a new coil pack and they would be happy to do it for $430. I told them I'll pick up the car this afternoon and do it myself for 1/3 their price.

I went to add a boost gauge to my Cruze over the weekend. Inadvertently I found that I had a pretty large antifreeze leak. Actually, I found two of them coincidently. The first one is a very small leak where the the inlet hose connects to the coolant water outlet. The second, I think, is where the coolant water outlet connects to the turbo cooling pipe. It's been a fun day of ordering parts and troubleshooting the s*** out of stuff.

Forgot to add that the wiper transmission has gone out as well so had to ordered one of those also.

67,xxx miles

I've done a bit lately. Gas hood prop/strut today. Wasn't hard either. The struts were like 20 bucks, maybe 25 on Amazon. Bear universal so you have to drill holes and they don't go right in but I think they look pretty clean.
I thought about doing that a few years back, but the kit was too much and they wouldn't answer my questions. Do you have a How-To: in the works?

I like the idea but hate the drilling part. One more spot for rust to start forming.

Yeah. I'm going to soon. It's really easy and the hardware total cost less than 35 bucks. Like 25 for the strut and 5 or 7 for the brackets. I'll post it tonight though I do like being the only person anywhere near here with that mod haha
