pic 1 some branch got stuck in the skid plate somehow. made a big noise dragging but I snapped it out easy enough

pic 2 apparently the brake line holder thing snapped off on droop. am I in risk of overextending the brake line? see anything else wrong under there?

not shown: passenger rear side fender lip is starting to pull out - I got to roll it asap!

no - the purpose of the holder is to just keep it out of the way. Just make sure the line still works, and set it back.

DAHEMI, have you tasted or smelled the fluid to see what it is that is leaking? It seems clear and viscous so either water line or fuel..... but I couldnt tell too much

Rolled over the 20k odometer mark while wheeling in Moab right after the MIL light came on (P0420).

wth it tasted like fruit punch???

argh choke gasp wheezeee












jjkg! I think it is indeed water, condensation from the a/c. what a weird place for it to be running down but as they say, it is what it is. some vent tube may have fallen off or something.

anyways, it gets worse - on to the blend door saga, step 1 next post.

Blend door saga, part 1 or, if he jumped off the golden gate bridge would you?

so I read others put a can of R134a in and it worked. I figures hey try it. Get one of those new fill cans with the built in pressure gauge to CYA or mine as it were. start the car and a/c, attach can, adjust fill can temp gauge scale to my ambient. hey it's reading low at 35psi. scale says should be 40+ psi. so I pull the lever to fill. and fill. and fill? doesn't seem to be working and now the gauge is reading redline. WTH. pop off gauge, try again, still same low static reading. fill fill fill it's not going in. remove fill can.

HUH OH. the low side shrader valve is bubbling with yellow liquid dripping down and smoking off the hot engine. if tasting the antifreeze don't kill me then inhaling this acrid smoke will. hack wheeze. check the inside a/c and the dang passenger side is still blowing warm, both the rear a/c vents too. switch to defrost and yup pass side warm. I want to shoot this all in one whiz bang HVAC unit. Or reach in there somehow and cable tie those blend doors to bypass the heater core or pull a connector (!idea!) or or or

Thought. Service manual states air is drawn in through the cowl vent, through the a/c system and then either pass the heater core or not before routing to whatever vent position selected. I don't need heat here in Hawaii, how hard would it be to just cap off the heater core! The air's already chilled so viola' ? Like I said, just a thought.

here's hoping whatever freon's in the system doesn't just vent out tonight then I have zero a/c. I guess it's going to the dealer soon.

the saga will continue...
