We did go one more time to Pinchot, but am not sure we got any pictures. Then we sort of got distracted for a while and left the van alone.
I had a gas tank leak that was bumming me out for a while. I would smell gas sometimes, and I could not for the life of me figure out where it was coming from. Its a big tank, and I did not feel like trying to drop it in the driveway, so I took it to our mechanic to look at it over the winter. It ended up that I poked a hole in the tank when I was patching the floor. Dennis, our mechanic, called me and said "I found a perfect 1/4inch hole below a shinny new rivet". haha. It was not an expensive fix, but it was a pain for him (turns out my fuel gauge doesn't work right either. It shows empty when it still has 20 gallons in it, which makes it heavier than expected...).
I am also battling an O2 sensor problem that will not go away. I have replaced sensors, which did not help. After getting code reader, I realize that the O2 sensors work only after they warm up. So I believe the problem is that the voltage that is supposed to heat the sensors, may not be sending. But it seems to run fine after it warms up, but it always throws the code. Oh well.
Anyhow, after giving her a tune up, I am motivated to get started on the camper van part of it again. But during the hiatus, we did use if for other stuff; like getting 100 balloons for my niece's birthday. I cant imagine what kind of creeper I looked like putting those in the van at Walmart.
