It’s T-Belt Time!!! - Our Garage

Sean = not quite as menacing as the Situation, but always down to try.

With an engine swap still out of my budget range I figured I might as well do some maintenance on Leroy so I could get him on track and start sorting the car out. The problem was I had quite a few issues that left me less than confident to push the car on track. The first order of business was the timing belt. With over 190k miles, the car was past due for its second timing belt change and I wasn’t even sure if it had been changed once. Next on the agenda was getting the axles replaced since they have been clicking for over three years now. The rest were minor details I might as well complete while working on the car; let’s take a look at the recent progression.
