Well, it's a van, that's expected. Vans are always a pain. Is that one where the thermostat is part of the housing and you have to replace the whole thing?

Sorry Tex, you know I love you.


I don't blame you for wanting to punch someone over that. Plus, I'll be working with helicopters, not cars.

This may be one of the sickest, most reprehensible, pieces of Left Wing moral-relativism propaganda I have ever f*****g seen. I really can't tell you how pissed that makes me.

Snopes.com says it is not the work of the brady foundation. I don't like their agenda and snopes is not my final arbiter in political matters but the brady bunch is too politically savvy in my opinion to put their name to it.

Thanks -- I was gonna ask if it was real, it seemed so disgusting to the point of unlikely -- I couldn't spend the 18 seconds it woulda taken to check for various reasons -- but relied on others. My simstake.

It's stuffed behind the exhaust manifold on the drivers side. The stupid heat shield was in the way,I needed to remove the air intake and had to contortion my left hand in ways that it shouldn't be bent, just so I can get the rear bolt off.

That's what I get for trying to save a dime and doing it myself. :O

Got my first paycheck of 2013. It was $70 less due to FICA. Happy New Year!
