@Bloody-the-resident-LandRover-apologist That is the word in the community, 6 to 12 months. I'm just hoping that I don't have 12 month houseguests, but they would do it for me, and I'll do it for them.
@TheModernLeper right, fair enough - i've put around 6k miles this year on the XC60 and have been mostly WFH as well. but now that i got rid of my ram in august (which had 9k since march 2021) it's going to be used more
@pip-bip A 240 was my first car, so I have a tremendous soft spot for them. That being said, I have always thought these were ugly. I just think they got the windshield angle, the side windows, and the proportions wrong.
I used to have a beagle-lab mix named Donna. Her little was abandoned by the highway at Christmas and they were named after Santa's reindeer. We adopted Donner and shortened the name to Donna.
She was an escape artist. Our yard had a 4-foot chain link fence. She figured out how to get under it. I added chicken wire, so she learned how to get over it. I added an invisible fence, and she learned how to ignore the electric zap in her neck while climbing the fence. I switched to a dog trolley which finally worked. (That's why she is wearing a harness in the photo.) Fortunately, she never lost her tags. I spent many hours searching the neighborhood for her, and I would regularly get calls from people who found her and weren't sure if the name "Donna" on the tag was the dog's name or the owner's name.
@tae Absolutely, and for many workloads there's no better option currently. The beauty of RISC V is anyone can contribute, again, much like Linux. It can become the dominant choice but it will take time.
My grand parents all passed away somewhat early 20 or so years ago, sadly, but two of my great Aunts are in the local seniors home, still with their faculties at 100 and 105, respectively....pretty amazing to think what they've witnessed in their lifetimes!
@Old-Busted-Hotness it does have a fifth injector, and while that line has been replaced, I haven’t actually checked/cleaned that particular injector… another good theory, I can probably rip that one out without spilling gas all over the engine.
You'll want to do that. All you're doing at this stage is cold starts, and that injector is at least trying to help.
@tae Laredo trims with the basic radio do have Bluetooth and Sirius, though the Bluetooth is ancient and there is significant lag when playing audio from a phone. I've never driven a V8, but I have no complaints about the V6. The gas mileage isn't great, but it's easily 3-5 mpg better than the V8.
@PowderHound I have rebuilt a few engines. Diligence, good approach, I move slow and triple check everything, step at time, read the manual, go to bed, get up, check everything again, on to the next. With that approach you can do most anything. Good luck.
@JeepOfTheseus Can confirm, I just replaced mine too! Haven't posted about it yet, but pretty much overhauled the system like @atfsgeoff did. Ended up going with an AutoZone radiator just so that if it ever happens again, it's likely to be in stock locally and I can cash in on the lifetime warranty. Wish I'd thought to look for silicone hoses though... oh well, I'm sure my new rubber ones will last a good while.
@Sam-Blockhan I got it too and did my due diligence. After plenty of research and time to kill while waiting for the hurricane to pass this week, I’ve come to the conclusion it’s finished in Black (040) over Mahogany MB-Tex (708).
