Car work

I’ve had to do some necessary things to my car.

I learned how to change spark plugs and wires. Never done it before. Never had anyone change them while I was around, so never got the opportunity to learn. Until now. Took about 10 minutes. Awesome.

I learned how to change the valve cover gasket. That was very interesting to me. To be able to see the in’s and out’s of what makes my car run, was fascinating. RM#1 just laughed when she heard me say This is so cool. I’m so excited to do this. Took about 20 minutes. More awesome.

A special thanks to a friend who helped.

Oh! And one of the greatest things? He fixed a really obnoxious rattle I had. Most awesome.

Spark plugs: $9.96

Plug wires: $31.99

Valve Cover Gasket: $19.99

Saving hundreds on labor charges: Priceless.

    I actually love doing that stuff. You get such a feeling of accomplishment. Plus I love the smell of motor oil. LOL

    Kudos to you.
