Checked my oil level and it was low. Was going to just add more to it, but I ended up taking it to get changed. It was replaced with 10W-30 (I saw a recommendation about that for this car).

Reset CEL light only to have it come back on. The error codes regard my Rear O2 Sensor and cylinders misfiring. Then during a later drive, the CEL went back out on it's own (without me resetting it) and no the bulb didn't blow.

They will go out after so many starts , it will recheck the system to see if you ever got around to fixing what it was trying to tell you in the first place. CEL will come back don't worry. :lol:

This weekend the landlord was here and cleaned out the gutters while i was out of town.

and the guy was so lazy that instead of taking a few more steps and throwing the crap in the yard, he tossed it on the hood of my saff. and then proceeded to just wipe it off the hood and really just smear it around.

Now, my car was not spotless-ly clean, and the crap out of the gutters had sticks and acorns and leaves and such in it so of course i send up with a bunch of small scratches on my hood.

Downfall is it is a 12 year old car and the paint is not perfect, so sadly I think all i can do is complain about it and tell them to warn us next time they do something and I'll park on the freaking street.

Sad thing is they were inside for some maintenance, and my Keys were sitting on the counter. They could have called and said they were going to do that, and have asked if they could move my car back down the driveway.

Fixed the plastic shield that moves up, down, back and forth with the glass on the sunroof. So no more loud popping noise from the plastic being foiced into place when opening the roof.

Ordered Oil Cap Gasket, Expansion Tank, and Front and Rear O2 sensors (figured that both should be replaced at the same time) from FCP. Now to figure out when I'm going to install all this stuff.
