Thank you! It definitely motivates me to get it done when posting online.Thanks for all the updates - impressed you are persevering. I'm really worried about all that plastic in the engine bay long term... Sounds like you are doing it right, though!
So I have the dct fluids and filter coming in Friday. I decided we'll I can remove the battery and tray pretty easily as I've molded and wired my brain to this tiny engine bay.
So I put everything back on so that I can start the car , check the brake booster so that the brake pedal isn't so heavy( and dangerous)
I fill the coolant into the reservoir, and it leaks right away onto the drive way.
I must have either not put back on a hose or another type of coolant hose /flange connector went bad in the back of the engine bay.
Been giving it an hour or so after work but going to just wait til this weekend and jack it all up and take care of everything while I get started on the dct filter and see how much dct oil I can get out without being able to warm up the transmission.
May wait til I can just drive it. But I have to solve the new issue.
Lol instead of a slow leak I had before which I am sure I fixed. It's just pouring out now lol.
Here's looking at it leak all over the driveway.
Magic mirror on the wall, who's got the greenest grass of them all
I'm going to guess at the rate and speed of this leak it's coming from between 23 and 25. Hopefully I just forgot to put a hose on.
