Finally got the Protege parked, Geo Prizms not only are easy to drive through snow but hella fun. ****ing E-Brake works!!! I did not have to fix or replace anything!!! The Geo's a pile of **** on wheels otherwise. Not having 15PSI at my control is getting boring.

Well, me to but I can't get the part LX to the shop without a tow and the shop owner won't thet me drive one.

But my parts LX is the older one and people say they have a bad crank or something, so i would like to go throught it and refurb it a bit but as you know i'm super broke.

But I might have a job soon, I might be a asst. manger of Advanced Auto. They should be calling my any minute now.

AWESOME,

I got an interview at Advanced on Thursday, and my dad's just got home from Florida and if there is room in the shop we're going to do the BP swap.

It's about damn time.

Does anyone want to come out and help.
My dad and I suck a wiring.

I've got this upcoming weekend free. I'm the wiring guru funk-master 3000 :dunce:
If you need any parts, make me a list! I'll see what I've got, because some of the parts are a hour drive away!

But if you want to make the trip you sure can. I don't have any money right now but I can accept donations ;)

Well Damn It!!

She still could not come home tonight.
The BP runs good but, there are still some more issues we found.
A bad cat, a bad timing belt tensioner, and some things up with the alternator. The battery light stays on and my voltmeter read just a hair over 16 volts.

So it's back to it tomorrow

Eeeek, at leat get the shifter bs figured out?
You should be able to replace the tensioner without removing the timing belt. Check to see if the voltage regulator is plugged in.

Everthing is pluged into the alternator, cuz we swiched out alternators to make sure and the light was still on. I don't know. Where elies would I look.

My dad has done a tensioner be for, so that shouldn't be to hard. I'm going to zip tie the belt to the cam gears just to be sure.

Yeah the shifter wasn't thet bad, we just cut the end of the bolt off, that gave me enought room.
