I was lokking thorugh the Subaru manual to find out where the thermostat
was. I'm used to it being on TOP of the engine.
While it ididn't show the location, it did say, "Remove negative battery
terminal, and remove thermostat housing..."
Huh? Remove the - terminal berfore removing the thermostat housing?! WTF?!?!
Last night I went to pick up my papers for my "paper route" and saw a
big-ass GMC pickup I hadn't seen before. Then I saw one of my firend's
fathers, who started doing the papers about 10 days after I did. He
usually drive an '01 Pathfinder.
"Where's the Pathfinder?" "I wrecked it." "WHAT?!?!?!?!"
Well, he didn't really wreck it. He had a bad bulb in the overhead light.
He removed the lens, and the bulb was in pieces, but still working
intermittantly. He removed the bulb and replaced the lens, and then tried
to start the truck. No Go. The starter spins, but the engine doesn't catch.
Looks like he fried the ECU!!!! All the other lights work, the dome light
works, but the fuel pumpo doesn't energize. He tried the reset procedure
I had heard of this before; I can't remember what the car was, but someone
shorted out the ECU replacing the dome light...
