i have been running my truck more often in the past couple days, unfortunatly only like 2-3 minutes at a time, not long enough to get up to a running temp, and i cant take it out down the road, because i havent got insureance on it yet. also glow plugs are bad in it, so i have been using starter fluid. after i get my bumpers and stuff on it this weekend im going to give her a oil change. i think this might help a bit, oil hasnt been changed in about 10 months, of course hasnt had 30 miles put on it in that ammount of time. also, starter fluid and just sitting htere i am also thinking would make the exhuast smokeier(spelling/grammer) is this true, or is it the worst assumption i have made yet.
also rear axle has a bit of fluid/gunk buildup on the bottom of the diff cover, i am going to change it anyway, but should i be concerned with breaking off bolts.
then this is on my S-10 but im sure is pretty much the same. if my throw out bearin is rattling will it hurt anything, im gonna try greaseing it, although, i think that will help
and one last one(i know chrome is ricey and all that,) but will mitric(spelling) acid take off the buildup of stuff and a bit of rust over the years, my rims look like crap, when the rest of the truck is nice.
