    I will use 5.1 when I change the Calipers, just need to get my thumbs out my a**

    Changed my humidity sensor today ( Mopar 55111389AF ), my ac has been acting up lately and there was a code for the humidity sensor. So I changed it, man it was smelling like burned elecronics :D

    It has been ok this afternoon, so looks to be ok now...

    No wright up on the humidity sensor swap, maybe I will do one, but my grammar and spelling is way of... :think:


    I hijacked the light sensor to while I were up there, here in Sweden we have to have lights on at all times.

    Hade to figure out what was what, rain sensor/ light sensor. I put a piece of electrical tape on the light sensor and now I have auto lights at all times :)

    ^^^ You are required to have all lights on all the time or just your headlights?

    2 headlight and 2 position light in the front and 2 position lights in the rear + license plate in the rear.

    But there was a change few years ago to help get the fuel consumption down to just use small LEDs in the front and nothing in the rear as long as it is daylight.

    That is fucked up when you are use to lights on cars, then you find a dark rear car in the evening thats not have auto night lights and the driver don't have a fucking clue that his lights don't work like they always have been working since he started driving in the 70s (auto lights on all cars here that is made for this market since the beginning of time. Before this front only DRL thing started that is in auto but not night time auto, just the front end DRLs...)

    Hope you understand something :oops:

    Tell me what you guys think about this. Looks to me like the rear main seal is leaking. I happened to look under the truck and saw a drop of oil on the bottom of the trans. There’s also some on a wire harness and the starter is wet where it bolts to the block. I’m not thinking oil pan simply because the bolts aren’t and the bottom of the oil pan isn’t wet. Let me know what you guys think...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    On my 1999 when the rear main was leaking it came straight down from between the engine and transmission. Oil was all over the transmission.
    Really sorry to see this.
