Found out why my car was intermittently not starting, even after replacing the battery a few days ago. The positive cable and terminal under the hood was loose and corroded.

Ordered a bunch of parts for my car. Oil separator valve & the hoses, fuel filter, spark plugs, oil filter, new trans fluid, steel brake lines, new brake fluid, and some random miscellaneous little bits here and there.
Yay maintenance!

Today I cleaned out the interior. Filled up an entire outdoor trashcan. It was almost disturbing to me.

wow. You know what's inside my car?

Air.

My entire car is Steve Jobs minimalist style. Well I do have the factory manual w/ leather case inside the glove box. Come to think of it, I should remove that. It's heavy. Other than that the trunk is as is it would sit on the showroom floor and the same goes for the inside.

Which reminds me.... I need to replace all four pedal clips i ordered.

My trunk has an organizer with detailing supplies and microfiber towels. Manual in the glovebox with insurance/registration inside. Tire gauge, mini multi-function tool and some gum in the armrest. That's it.
