It's been forever. I miss you guys and I miss my Pony. Hope all are well. Looking around I see some familiar names and some new ones. And wow, a 4G Escort coming. Right after I sold the Pony my life was turned upside down several times!! My favorite cat passed away, 2 of my big pine trees blew over onto the neighbor's house next door causing damage, my shed was destroyed in the same wind storm, my relationship of 4+ years ended, some appliances broke, and all kinds of other crazy stuff! My brother bought a fixer-upper house that needed gutted, re-wired, and re-plumbed; so I was spending a lot of time over there; trying to get some work done on my own fixer-upper house, and 9 months ago today I met an awesome new woman so my time is spread pretty thin! I just went through a big fiasco with my new car (Kia Rio...) in which the timing belt jumped 1 tooth, and then an unknown mystery issue made the car run really poorly after I replaced the timing belt! After about 2 weeks of screwing around with it, I discovered that Kia/Mazda's idiotic design allowed the pickup for the Camshaft Position Sensor to become dislodged from the intake cam and therefore was throwing the ignition timing off. Garbage in/garbage out. What a coincidence that the CMPS target would fall off at the same time the timing belt jumped. We had to weld the stupid thing back onto the camshaft, because there was no set screw like everyone on the Kia forum said there was supposed to be. The car has a Mazda B6 DOHC - and yes it's an interference engine - really scary. I was trying to keep track of the guy who bought my Pony but it doesn't look like he's posted in a while. Hope it's having a good life out in Indiana.
