    I changed out my oil pressure sensor last night. (09 V8) The old one had a code for sensor circuit high voltage. Do yourself a favor and buy the special socket for it. I got a Performance Tool W80590 from Advance Auto. GM in their infinite wisdom used some kind of weird rounded off hex instead of a normal 6 point hex. The sensor body is this really light aluminum. It almost feels like tin. It seems like it'd be easy to round off. There's no good way to get an open end wrench down in there, and it would really suck to round the thing off. I was able to do the swap in about 15 minutes with a 3/8" ratchet and extension thanks to that socket. The sensor gets torqued to 25 ft-lbs.

    My sensor also came with a little filter insert. That's only used on the 2010 engines with active fuel management. 2008-2009 doesn't use it. If anyone needs just the filter, let me know and I'll send it to you for free.

I really don't have the means to fix this right now without having any knowledge on what might exactly be going on. Thanks for any help!
    Keep in mind that the channels in the roof for the roof rack rails are bolted into the roof, and extend the entire length. I've heard that the threaded inserts that are used for that channel can rust, and then leak. Thought I'd mention that since you talked about the C pillar, and it would seem that the rear sunroof drains would be nearer the B pillar.

    Finally got around to installing new headlights with the Lased Designs adapter kit for Jeep headlights. Took a bit longer than I expected, but I suppose most of that was due to me running back and forth to the store for things I needed and did not have.

    I also took car of the rattling A pillar trim with some foam tape, seems pretty snug now. The stock foam tape was damn near brittle and about half the size it was from factory it seemed. After these two tasks, went ahead and used some 303 Protectant for the trim pieces to bring back that darkness and it worked pretty damn well. Washed the outside and engine bay for quite a while, gave up before I got to the interior. Next step is to get some bedliner on the grill and some new terminals since mine are cracked. Thank you Bowser-II (for the recommendation, not breaking them). Once that is done, I'll hopefully carve out some time to update my build thread that has laid dormant since before Pepperidge Farm can remember

    Foglight guards

    I installed some foglight guards. They’re ok, no measurable decrease in light output, and It looks a little tougher.

    Gave it a bath while I charged the battery then took it for a spin to put some fuel in it. Haven't started it since end of May.

    I spent 3 hours chasing an electrical problem that was preventing the HVAC blower fan from working. AGAIN. Seems to like to do it around this time of year.

    At least now I have it well sorted as to where the problem is, it's the connector for the body harness just inside the firewall on the driver's side. All I had to do was unlatch the connector and relatch it. That was apparently enough to get rid of the problem. It's a really weird one too, everything has power and proper continuity, except the moment you try to turn the fan on it immediately loses power on the feed side. Turn the knob back to off and immediately you get a voltage reading again. So it was only an issue when there was more than a few milliamps of current flowing through the circuit. Weirdest thing I have ever seen, electrical wise.

    If it's the blower resistor that you are referring to, there was a recall on that. If that's what it is, the problem will only get worse until it quits working altogether.

    Blower resistor connection is on the passenger side underneath the glove box.

    When I had my dash out, I noticed one of the pins on my resistor connector was dark, like it had been overheated. This is with the supposedly improved recall part. Not cool.

    Sorry...I misread as passenger side. Yeah, I can't believe after all these years someone hasn't come up with an aftermarket GM blower resistor. I've come to expect to replace the one on my truck about every other year. I even bought a new blower thinking maybe it was drawing too many amps, even though bench test showed it was fine.

    Not the blower resistor. It's the body harness connector on the driver's side just inside the firewall. The connection there is what is going out on my truck.

    Took the H3 to Reloader's today as my rear pinion seal was leaking. Did the driveshaft shake test and realized the transfer case output bushing was worn. Also noticed that the transfer case was moving at the transmission.

    Checked the transfer case mount studs/nuts. Two nuts were completely missing! Two more were about to fall off. One nut was holding the transfer case to the transmission! I need to fire the mechanic that installed it, but then I can't really fire myself.

    So, one pinion seal, transfer case output shaft bushing and seal, new fluid in the transfer case and rear diff. Didn't need to change the fluids but I'm not putting on more than 15K on the transfer case fluid between changes and I was curious how the diff looked since the rebuild two years/12,000 miles ago.
