Tim, cool, keep her calm, as you know but that is good stuff. She is getting happy again, repairing ...
That would make you feel good the Vet's car payment is made but also his work appears to have worked
I have used phenergan at doggy levels to encourage some chill too

Good update

No idea, not that clued up on euro cars.
I do know previous owner recently replaced fuel pressure regulator or something like that.
So I'm guessing might be the issue.

Mr G6ET - she has had a very quiet week this week. No kids, the other dog on holiday at my parents, me working from home so she has either been confined to a small area or on a lead (even in the back yard)

Something wrong though, very much down on power, 2litre fuel injected, but so sluggish.
Some investigative work to be done.
Gorgeous looking car though.

Finally owning a Ford again feels pretty good.

Ripped my work pants jumping off the tow truck so I'm back in the office in shorts and that feels pretty damn good too haha

Finally sorted a misfiring CitroŽn. Dead coil pack, made harder by diagnostic gear not talking (no idea why, yet). Looking forward to less cars out the front!

Started to do the known maintenance stuff for a pink slip on my 08 fairmont ghia today so it will pass. Both parking lamps in the front were blown, theyre easy, i paid servo tax for those, so $3 per side, not terrible. My passengers side low beam was out. I have small girlish hands, but still it was an airbox out job just to get the details. Technical tap. But i did put it back in because i dont want crud, dust or anything into the headlight housing. Not that its going to work further then the first bump i hit, i gave the dual fillament h4 a technical tap. So thats that. Need an off the shelf h4. Nothing terrible. I did however, having to remove the airbox, shake it out. It was full of rocks and god knows what. The airfilter, its a k&n and my brother is a motorbike guy, so he cleanened and re oiled it for me a few weeks back so it was mint. Clean as. So, what i did learn is. When adjusting my headlights, my stock ghia has iluminated window switches. Just the front doors, but who cares about those in the back? Thats what window lock is for.

I guess that's the beauty of being self employed in a rare trade. I get to choose.
