Oil migrating to the airbox is not uncommon due to either blow-by, regular and/or sustained full-throttle low vacuum situations (likely frequent with a 2.5!) or a hydraulic engineering phenomenon that creates a pulsing vapor Ďcloudí where vaporous droplets travel /towards/ the air flow and condense where the pressure drops. (white clouds of fuel standing 2Ē above a carburetor opening on a hotrod motor is an example of this weird thing)

Either way get the hoses right and donít worry about the oil right now. Thatís not going to effect anything youíre trying to do or fix at the moment. Once itís running well you can worry about that.
Thanks for the info! Once I get home from work, i'll put in some coolant and hope it's all sealed up. Then fire it up and take it for a spin!

Fix one coolant leak and another starts , needs a new radiator. But glad the freeze plug isn’t leaking. Sounds better with the new plugs wires and all that.

Question - Has anyone ever tested injectors? I have not so i'm looking for some advice. The car has 170K miles so it may be worth it to buy new ones?

What gives you the impression you need them? You can noid light it or just pop them off and inspect and clean them.

Fairly certain mine are original. Lol.

I am getting CEL #27 - "One of the injectors output drivers does not respond property to control signal"

But the CEL is not on when driving, I need to get a smog check, but I don't want to deal with the hassle of it failing.

Took it for smog and it passed. So I guess the code it was throwing wasn’t popping up. Time to give it a bath and shine it up.

Anyone have any recommendations on front fender replacements? There are quite a few options online. Seeing if anyone has positive or negative feedback from their orders.

If you’re not ‘restoring’ “classic to current” has inexpensive stuff that works.
From what little I’ve seen, a similarly named company “Classic Enterprises” has much better quality and oem fit.
Look ‘em up and pick one.

I did have a problem with classic2current where their rear crossmember replacements were .020” or so thinner than oem AND they were over 1/4” taller than my factory parts; they wouldn’t refund me or send replacements so I cut and hammered to get fitment. Ymmv

Cranking IS turning over
