New Air Filters
Got two (2) new air filters today. One for the engine and and one for the cabin. Engine air filter was getting a little bad, but the cabin was real bad. It had some holes in it. I cleaned a lot inside of the engine compartment and in the housing of the air filter. Its looking pretty good.
I took apart the plastic under the steering wheel to see if I couldn't find the turn signal timer. No such luck. Still an excellent feeling to take something apart, worried that you're getting in over your head, and getting it all back together. Good as new! I had real big plans today to clean it up. Turns out I kept it pretty light but went for the filters on a whim. My roommate put new plugs in his Volvo C30, though.
I learned a few things about my Rav4 today. One of them being spark plugs. I didn't know where they were and it baffled me since I had got the car. I also couldn't find the distributer. Turns out the plugs are under the air filter box, and they're those silly coil ones. That means no distributer! I also found out that it has a serpentine belt.
Another great day during which I gave my Rav4 a healthy dose of TLC.
