Anyway, I'm getting tired of l ...

Good morning from sunny but very icy Minnesota!

When the temps consistently drop into the negative 20s and 30s, I have absolutely no motivation to go and work on any car. Even with a heater, it's ...

I will have to use some penetr ...

The crank seal is most likely shot and leaking from there as well as other places. I looked at this car and I saw oil running down and back on the pan.

Got under the car again and started taking more things apart. Drained the radiator to try and get the fans off and down. Couldn't drain the oil. The plug is frozen into place, probably from someone ...

Well, so it begins. I finally took a deep breath and put on my armor, sharpened my sword, and trekked into my garage to confront this German beast. I knew it was going to be bad, but I'm worried tha ...
