New Poll

So this next poll is actually going to be telling me what to do first on my car.

I have listed a bunch of problems in earlier posts.  The choices are going to be: Make it run, Fix the right front, Figure out the grinding in the transmission, or figure out where my coolant is going.  My choice would be to try to first run it so I can figure out if there are going to be any more problems that are going to be needed to be fixed.

Results and other stuff

So the results are in even though I know there was more people that commented than there were that voted.  But based upon the poll Asian manufacturers won.  I am a big fan of Asian vehicles myself as I have said before.  Onto another subject.  I tried placing my car onto cinder blocks this week in the grass.  It didn't go well at all.  The jack I was using wasn't rolling like it is designed and it made the car start to slip off the jack.  So no I have to clear out the garage to fit it in.  This is going to be a long project because I have no idea where I am going to put all my stuff.  If you have any ideas please let me know.

Getting The Car Ready

So this week I am going to be prepping the car to officially start work on it.  There is a bunch of items I have to do so that way I can make some decent progress when I start.  I have lift it up and I think the cheapest route to do this is going to be put it on some cinder blocks.  I know it sounds redneck but that's what I have laying around.  I also have to put some air in the tire that way I roll it better.  Also it needs a really good cleaning.  But I do have to give myself credit I have been washing the outside.  Hopefully soon I will be able to get some pictures on soon.  So stay tuned for more updates.

New Poll: Whats your favorite region of car manufacturer?

I am making a poll today to see where your favorite manufacturer is located.  If you don't see your region I am sorry.  You can discuss your opinion down below if you want.  I like Asian manufacturers because a lot of their vehicles are customizable and they are also fuel economical.

The Reason

So I never really went over the reason why I chose a CRX.  One is that the insurance is really cheap.  My insurance payment was about 85 bucks a month with my given record.  Two is that parts are really easy to come by.  I mean I can almost go to any junk yard and pick up any used part from almost any Honda from the late 80's and it will be interchangeable.  Three is it gets really good gas mileage.  I get about 32 MPG which I think is pretty good. And last and definitely not least is that it can be customized to the max.  There are many other reasons but those are my top four.

Whats Wrong: Part 6 - High Idle

So when I first bought the car after it was warmed it would cycle from 500 rpm to 1500 rpm.  Its more annoying than anything.  I don't think it is a major problem.  I was driving one day and the guy before the guy I bought it from told me to just pull up on the gas pedal and it worked.

Another Idea

So I have come across another idea.  I think I may end up taking a loan out to complete the car so that way we can gt things moving a lot quicker.  I know that this is going to be a long process but it will be worth it in the end.  Let me know of your ideas.
