History I bought this car in 2010 and she has never "steered" me wrong. ~~punny~~

I've only recently gotten into mechanics so I basically beat the shit out of this car up until about 6 months ago- when I finally started taking care of her. I'm lucky she didn't blow.. seriously.

She's only broken down on me once- at 170K- and luckily, it was a somewhat simple and cheap fix; ignition coil. I also recently (April 2015) switched out the right motor mount and she drives like new. NO SHAKES- it was very annoying. Fixed all the multiple vacuum and oil leaks she's acquired over the years and switched out the power steering pump and tensioner, as well. All that's left is the thermostat, which I've already purchased- I just have to wait to change it out because I need a bigger pan to collect coolant, and my check engine light **should** finally go off! Poor girl... it's been on for at least three years.

Once I get all the mechanics working properly I'll be starting to mod her. SO excited.
