Default all of a sudden it would not start!

I had to run an errand before my date tonight. The key just turned round and round.!

Oh no. All I heard in my mind was her saying
"another date broken while you fix stuff...."

after a quick internet search, a trip to the parts store, $40 and two hours later I ran my errand and Katherine's on her way over now.

What did I do to my liberty? Replace broken ignition switch actuator.

Changed oil. Almost 6k OCI. That's a bit too long for me but other things needed doing.

Does swapping out the differential as an assembly require the complicated setup process?

That's funny, I spent more time than I planned changing the rear springs and shocks on the wife's Sienna. Over 230k on the stockers was more than enough but still damn near took one spring to the face when I popped it out. All this in the bay next to my KJ.

Raked all the leaves piling up around it. Then eyed it longingly while up on a ladder cleaning gutters.

That’s not real funny. Neither was mine; had to replace the radiator and both hoses in the middle of replacing all of the front brake lines and bleeding everything. Originally a fleet vehicle in Indiana, it apparently never got its undercarriage washed. I replaced the rear brake line and the fuel lines behind the fuel filter a year ago.

Wouldn’t have bothered, but the body is great and the engine and trans are strong.

Not really , of course depending on what year you have , after 05 bit more to do.
Front is easy enough as well
The way we do it don't even need to bleed brakes etc afterwards
