The trucklet wouldn’t start. The battery finally gave up I think. I had trouble with it over the 4th of July weekend and am actually surprised it lasted this long.
As long as I was home from work for a day and needed to work on the vehicle, I did some other things to it as well.
It’s 110,000 miles on original sparkplugs. Hey, I got 108,000 on the original tires.
I’d been dreading the sparkplugs since the day I bought the trucklet. The salesman at the dealer looked at me funny when I popped the hood and swore. I have easy access to the front 3 plugs, but the back three I can barely see and can’t touch at all. I got the vehicle anyhow, knowing that one day I’d need to take the top of the engine off to replace the plugs.
My neighbor came over and helped with moral support, expensive tools, and sage advice. It probably would have taken twice as long and not been as good of a job without him.
