I know you guys love pics of boring maintenance stuff as much as I do but I add fun commentary to it for a bit of excitement.
Christmas is when I unload new parts and place it on the bench. Branched heater/coolant tank hose, 5/8 std heater hose, plastic quick disconnects, tank to rad hose.
The Achilles Heel of 99-07 GM cooling systems. As bad as a BMW E46 cooling system, this white fitting becomes brittle due to the dexcool. I easily broke off the nipple trying to get this quick disconnect off and it would be a nightmare if it happened on the freeway.
Everything removed. The smell and feeling of dexcool all around the engine bay is *OMG! so totally gross*
so I rise down the affected areas with water.
Installed a new puke tank along with the heater core return/puke tank branch hose.
New fittings. One thing that seperates a pro job vs. a ghetto job is lining the hose clamps One Direction *omgz hot boy band*.
Same for the WP
Not gross engine bay vs. other trucks I've worked on. I pressure wash engine bays on vehicles I work on unless it's a bum rush job then idk...
