tune-up before winter strikes. new plugs, cap /rotor, oil&filter, trans oil, fuel filter, air filter, top up other fluids. fix interior light, clean interior a bit, lube door hinges, gaskets and latches, lube window guides, seafoam in fuel tank. did a walk around to make sure all lights are working properly.
easy work when all the parts are '‘in stock’‘ at ’‘my’' parts store…. :laugh:

oh and i rebuilt a 25 cc engine for a stihl leafblower….easy peasy 2 stroke, new bearings/piston/rings/jug and some carb tuning and it runs like new. 8-)
got the leafblower for free, $150 in parts and runs excellent…$450+ for a new one….. :laugh:

So why did you put seafoam in the feul tank?

my twice a year fuel injector cleaning- more like peace of mind….something i have done for many years- helps keep carbon / varnish build-up to a minimum….but i do drive 65 mph every day for more than an hour every day…. ;-)

I put 940000km on my 95 FireflySE over 20 years, never had to replace or clean the injector.

Finally replaced my passenger window on my 1987 Pontiac Firefly.
It was smashed out by some kids some time ago, while it was in storage in the under ground parking spot at my apartment.
All is well, that ends well I guess : )
