Fixing the Van!!

aturday was a nice and cold day, with a 5 pages paper and a
quiz to study for, I grab my gloves and went to work with Walter....

Oh Yeah! I worked!! ;) LOL

If you don't know, Walter is a certified Mechanic. he went to school so he can work on his own cars but never worked as a mechanic.

Anyway he had done work on BMWs and everything else from there, and last Saturday it was my Town & Country's turn.

I've been complaining of tugging and lack of power so beside the fart smell that the van was producing (which I was blamed for plenty of times) Walt suspected that perhaps a failure on the caliber converter would be the issue.

So the work needs a welder or some kind of tool that I'm surprised Walter doesn't have.

Until Kaynor Tech can check out the Van; I need to be mobile so Walter decided to check the spark plugs.

We discovered that 3 spark plugs were situated in the from of the van and the other 3 behind the intake manifold, which we had to remove, along with a whole load of cables and plugs, including the air filter tingly... (I can't know everything)

Anyway after hours of unscrewing, removing and braking things, we found out that I was driving (for who knows how long) with two broken spark plugs, that actually look like the originals from the factory.

We replaced the spark plugs and the cables because it come to be that 4 out of 6 were not getting any power, 3 were originals, and I really mean originals from Chrysler. And fix the brittle cables that we broke (and when I say we I mean Walter broke them).

AND fixed two gas leakages I was having (not me the van). So the paper had to wait until Monday because Sunday I van not able to do much, and quiz was completed Tuesday.

Moral of the story: I can get dirty if I want to.. :D LOL

into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house,
and prove me now herewith,

if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour
you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it
