    Got a day off from work today. Got a nice long todo list that's been accumulating the past couple weeks, most of it revolving around my S-10 blazer.

    Change Oil+Filter
    Change Rear Differential Oil
    Change Transmission Filter
    Change Fuel Filter
    Inspect Brakes and 4WD system (Especially the CV's which I believe are going bad), top off master cylinder
    Inspect Power Steering system, top off as necessary
    Spray a can of Seafoam down the throttle body
    Clean the inside

    Then maybe take a nap :D

    That's what I'm doing right now. Leftover Red Lobster. Hobby Shop doesn't open till 1 PM. That's one of the things I love about the AF, is the auto hobby shop. Just a few bucks an hour and I get my own lift and just about any tool I need. The lift alone is worth it, I hate crawling under that S-10.

    Yeah, that's so kool. I was changing stations, and the motor in my '69 Chevy van I got from the Officer's club auction started knocking. That was the first time I had used the Base shop. They had everything you could ever need to pull and rebuild an engine. Great benefits in the military ya never hear about.

    the one in Yuma ROCKS!! but the one here at pendleton SUCKS. old worn out tools and a bunch of crappy people. no to many tools that are needed as well. lots of basic things, but not too many advanced things like in yuma.
