I cleaned and installed the floor mats as well as the front seat bolt covers. Now that the interior is nice and clean, the headliner stains really stand out. I need to see if I can get it any cleaner.

I messed with the car on Friday. I installed the replacement tail lights and the roof rails. I didn't want them to get broken sitting around my garage.

I also got the car running so I could move it and my pickup around. I pulled the plugs and gave them a quick clean. Two things were confirmed, the PCV system is clogged and the car is burning coolant. One thing that makes me happy is the motor is firing on all cylinders. I'm also happy that the car went into drive and reverse without a problem but I didn't take the car above 5mph.

Things observed:
-There was quite a bit of oil under the spark plug cover including 3 of the plug holes filled with oil.
-Plugs were very oil fouled.
-PVC system very clogged, oil was spraying out the oil cap.
-Coolant cloud out exhaust.
-Coolant on ground when system pressurized, I didn't have a chance to investigate. I'm sure it is related to the reason the head gasket blew.
-Turbo is spooling and boosting.
-Coolant was low and oil is chocolate milk. I already knew this.
-Car tries to stall at idle.
-Car has check engine light (obviously).
-ABS/ Trac lights are on.

One weird thing that I've never seen before is the hazard switch is jammed and making a horrible noise. At first I thought is was the tape deck because it sounded a little like that but louder. I'm going to try and pull it and see if I can clean it, if not I'll pull one from the junk yard.

I have not checked the codes yet, I still need to get a cable for my laptop. Once I get that done, I'll post the list of codes.

About the only thing I did to the car is try and remove an old sticker from the lift gate. I got it about 1/3 done. I need to get a plastic scraper and some goof off. I also plan to remove the pinstriping at the same time.
