O.K. I've just spent $500 CDN on the following parts:
Oil, Oil Filter, Spark Plugs, Wires, Distributor/Rotor, Air Filter, PCV Valve, Fuel Filter, Ignition Coil, O2 Sensor, MAP Sensor,Temp Sending Unit, Brake Pads - Front, Brake Pads - Rear.
I couldn't get a MAT sensor or an EGR valve at Cdn Tire and I was wondering how important these are for a well running engine. I am basically replacing everything I can think of because I'm not sure what's been done to the car before I got it. Just wondering if I should track these down while I'm at it.
Also, has the debate on whether you should remove the decklid to change the front plugs been decided? I've read a few threads that say this is the best way to go and others that say just get a flexible ratchet and get in on top of your engine and feel your way. What exactly does a flexible ratchet look like anyway? Cdn Tire has a tool loan program but, the dude behind the counter apparently knows nothing about this tool.
And, last but not least, is there anything I should do before doing something else (i.e. coil before or after dist., plugs and wires)?
