Sunday the wife and I changed the brake pads, rotors, changed the oil and tried to change the spark plugs.

Tried using the Autolite APP985s but the motor was missing so after everything I tried I put the old spark plugs back in and the motor sounds fine. But my CEL came back on so now I get to learn about the TCM.

Removed my body bolts then oiled them up and put them back in to make sure they'll come out easily when I remove my 2in body lift. I'll keep the 2in chassis lift.

this always makes me wonder, should new cars have a "break in" period because everything is new?

Towing trucks like the F-series fords should atleast. I was talking to one guy about gears and he said that he knew someone that blew through 3 sets of ring and pinions because he started towing with 50mi on it, tome after time. I guess he eventually learned lol.
