That's weird. With the key on before starting the engine there's a little red light on. The little red light illuminates the "CHECK TRANS" idiot light. Well... that can't be good. I crank the motor over and the light goes off. Ok, that's a good sign. I've been staring at this dash for 12,000 miles and I've never seen the check trans light stay on for more than a second when everything else lights up. So it's to the internet to pull up the trouble shooting info from the Allison Transmission website.
I follow the manufacturers instructions and check for fault codes and oil level. Everything checks out ok per Roo's ECM. " Lower your expectations and you'll never be dissapointed"- Mike Finnegan. Gotta love roadkill. If anyone out there is reading this and you like anything about cars just type in ROADKILL on youtube. Enjoy the goodness that is awesome project cars.
So time to get back on track. Katie is still feeling under the weather and I need to make another quiet day for her. Remember back when I said I couldn't wait to detail the RV? I'd hope so because that was yesterday.
I've had an affliction for clean cars since I had my first one. My bro Stick can vouch for my attention to my S10. Cowboy Tony will tell you that I kept my RX-7 spotless. Whitey will tell you that my corvette was the cleanest FRC that roamed the streets. Even Mark and Mario have seen me wash and wax my deleted Cummins work truck. There's no reason to neglect Roo and not show her some love.
I'm always up for learning new tricks and the RV taught me another one. This dirtball cheap cleaner from the Dollar Tree is hands down the best cleaner I've ever used to remove water stains and black streaks off of fiberglass. That means I'll be spending the next 3 hours hand wiping down the side of Roo with this, then going back and giving her another loving rub with some quick detailer. A final coat of vinyl protectant over the graphics should just about cover it. Oh and dont' worry, I spent another 45 minutes hand polishing the wheels. I'll do the other side tomorrow.
