Tag Archives: Spark plugs

Eventful sunday

Car hasn’t been starting properly for the past month. Originally thought it was the battery problem, which is why I went and bought a new battery a few weeks ago. That seemed to fix the problem but then it appeared again, so decided to change spark plugs as I deduced that it was possibly my rich fuel mix that fouled up my plugs.

Raining all saturday so couldn’t do it. Went to CLNSKY’s place yesterday to get some help (actually, credit to him because he did most of it) and changed the spark plugs. We had to let the engine cool down first after my drive there, but about 30mins of cooling, heard thunder. Went outside and saw storm clouds in the distance, but we decided to start anyway and get it done ASAP.

Who knew that the rain would come so fast? Luckily my bonnet was up in the right direction, basically giving us a shield against the wet and ALSO protecting the open engine from getting wet. Here’s some pics.

Nice legs Mr. CLNSKY!

Then afterwards, the ever-amusing Moo arrived in his prelude. Didn’t get a picture of his window but it gave us many lols. As soon as he turned off his car, he said he’d need a jump start, instant facepalming from me and CLNSKY.

First jump start successful.

Second one, not successful.

That was the weekend of work!

Have to report that after changing sparkies, car felt much smoother to drive/accelerate, and also started better. Now, fingers crossed that was the source of the starting problems. Now, to find out wtf is wrong with my brake booster…?
