    As I have only had the car since Tuesday, I am still going over it for warranties.
    All my engine issues were battery related. Because the car hadnt been driven in over 3 weeks, the battery was weak and almost flat. This generated a plethora of ECU spasms with over a dozen ridiculous OBD2 codes.

    Highlight of the day - finding the retractable luggage netting tucked into the rear seats

    Default Trany and Engine Oils

    After wasting several hours building a set of ramps (see below for details) I finally managed to do an oil & filter change, replaced 9 liters of mahogany brown transmission fluid with fresh M1-3309, cleaned the air box, and used compressed air and a shop vacuum to clean each and every pleat of the air filter (waiting for new filter and pollen filter from IPD.) The car runs great and shifts smoothly, as it should.

    I built four (4) ramps, one for each wheel, thinking I could drive an AWD vehicle onto these blocks. I used clear 2X10 pine boards (broke my heart to use such nice wood, but it was available and it was free) and cut them into 16/18/20 & 22 inch lengths. I then nipped a 45 degree bevel off the leading edge of each, and screwed them together. Finally, I screwed a 2X2 block across the back edge of each ramp as a wheel stop.

    I put one ramp under the front edge of each tire and tried (better to have tried and failed than not to have tried at all) to drive up on to the ramps. NOT! Frustrated but not about to give up, I remove the 'ramps' from the rear wheels and was able to easily drive the front end up the ramps to allow sufficient clearance to remove the belly pan and proceed with the fluid changes.

    In hind sight, the ramps are too steep for all four wheels. I need to cut four 3-foot lengths of plank to decrease the angle & get all four wheels on blocks.
    Or I could have gone to CT and purchased steels ramps.

    Cheers

    Installed window tint on the XM Commander MY display/controller to reduce glare from the display.

    KO Tires installed my new WR G2 235 R60/16 XL's that I purchased from the Tire Factory. Bring on the snow!

    put in an IMIV Light Edition (no video or aux in jack) in my 2005 XC70 yesterday. Took only about 20 minutes to install second in chain with the sat radio. I love having the iPod connected directly (no awful FM transmitter here!) Sounds great. I might even cancel my sat subscription now that the ipod works so well.

    Just got done fixing a leaky power steering line and adding new power steering fluid. Old hose clamp had seen better days! Fluid looks like it hasn't been changed forever... looks like power steering flush is now on the agenda!
