dpaton's 2001 DB8 - p40: ABS codes 51 and 53

FOUND ONE!




Picked it up on Friday night.
Drove home through a terrible quantity of bugs.
Washed it today, swapped in my Del Sol seat, and started to make it mine.

More tk.

Titanium Silver. It's a car that's been seen here before....and it's still in great shape.

Bought the drivers door handle in a factory painted matching color this morning, along with some interior garnish bits that were cracked from 179k of life.

I need to find someone selling the rear seat/trunk carpet from a 4dr. I can order it new, but it's $209, which is highway robbery. Hell, the $2.60 each for the stupid trim clips is insane, but I pay it because I'm a whore for OEM parts

I also need to find someone with a factory trunk plate that's in passable shape so I can trace it. Right now my trunk is naked inside, and it's a little noisy as a result.

Need to get the tint fixed too.

Pictures soon.

Ffffuuuuuuu...

Oil leak from the pan. Looks like the entire front edge where it meets the block, and maybe the sides too. Could even be all the way around. A few dents on the bottom, but nothing bad enough to make the drops on my garage floor. P.O. verified it didn't leak for him, and it didn't leak on the driveway last night. Grumble.

Going to try to retorque the pan bolts and clean it up, hope it stays sealed for my drive to work tomorrow. Crossing fingers it lasts until the weekend.

Two stripped bolts.



Anyone ever Timesert oil pan holes? Looks like M6x1. Aluminum inserts or carbon steel? Not going to do stainless in an AL block...

Ordered the M6x1 Timesert kit. It'll be here the day AFTER my long weekend ends. Figures.

In the mean time, I sprayed things down with brakeleen and wiped them of the funk they've acquired. Then I slathered the leaking area with Hondabond.

I also put a bottle of ATP-205 in the engine. There is evidence of a rear main seal leak, and maybe the front main too (the engine does have almost 180k on it, and had a tough life for a while). This stuff is magic. Get it here:

http://www.amazon.com/ATP-AT-205-Re-Seal-Stops-Bottle/dp/B000NVW1LM

Finally, after driving around for a day with a radio that didn't want to tune anything in at all (why do the important parts break right after you buy a used car?), I swapped in my old Pioneer Premiere DEH-P880PRS.

And I figured as long as I had the console apart, I should go whole hog and get the foglight harnesses installed. I pulled the factory fogs off of my 98 DB7 before it was totalled, and the installation was the reverse of the removal. Nice and easy. The lamps and brackets stayed on the workbench until the long weekend, since I can't find a PDF of the templates anywhere.

She's running good and strong. Almost time for pictures I think...

Hoping to take a few shots this weekend.

The leak is taken care of for now. I'm not sure if it was the Hondabond or the AT-205, but one of them worked and things are dry. I'm still going to TimeSert the block for the two stripped oil pan screws though. Trying to source a proper oil pan right now to replace the banged up one.

For what it's worth, don't leave home the next morning without having someone check your hair. I had to get an early morning haircut to remove some Hondabond that I'd picked up on the top of my head while shimmying out from under my car. That was a little embarrassing.

Found my fog light templates. I'm dumb. They were the last 2 pages in the installation PDF. Oops.

Update:

Dammit, still leaks. Not sure if it's the oil pan or the power steering, but I think the former. Just drips, but I was really hoping to not have to park over the drip tray with this one....

Timesert kit comes on Tuesday. I'll try to get the work done the following weekend.
