While looking around under the hood of my 05 Park Avenue I see a decal
on the alternator with a serial number, GM letters, the word Denso and
Made In Japan at the bottom of the decal.
I bought a gallon of Dex-Fool___ oops Dex-Cool. The other parts guy at
Chevy told me to keep & eye on the stuff. I told him I was well versed
on the problems.
He even suggested yearly flushes. I said No, No this stuff is good for
150,000 miles or five years. He said if you left in that long you'd
never get it out. We had a good laugh.
I flushed my bottle out when I got home, It was a bit low, plus looked
cruddy where the level had been till it dropped.
I just can't believe all the aluminum suspension parts on this car. Big
Al told me to rotate the tires before going to Tennessee next week -
they didn't look or feel like they've been rotated.
Got harassed by a forest preserve copper today. There is one picnic
grove with a gravel U shape drive way. no curbs, or concrete pillars to
keep cars you from driving on the grass.
For over 20 years I've been going here photographing different cars on
I drove up slow, no wheel spinning, grass was freshly cut, so no threat
of a grass fire. I told the guy the farmer size tractors pulling the
grass cutter does more damage to the lawn than a car. We had a few more
words and he told me to get out of here.
