My oil temp/level sensor went out about 5k miles ago which of course was shortly after my previous oil change. As the oil sensor is on the bottom of the oil pan, I was stuck with the error messages until the S4 was due for another oil changes. Today was the day I finally got to replace it. Out of all the things I fixed on this S4 the oil sensor was by far the easiest. Drain the oil, take the 3 bolts out holding the sensor into the oil pan, unplug the harness and work in reverse for the new sensor. Sadly I'm so used to something going wrong with "easy" repairs, it just feel odd when a repair actually goes to plan. I'm so glad to get rid of the stupid "Oil Sensor" warning light and beep.
As for the 034 Stainless Braided Brake Line Kit, it is currently standing by ready for install. I typically don't mess around with brakes and leave it to the professionals. Hopefully I'll have them installed and the fluid flushed before the 2018 Leavenworth Drive.
Over the weekend I rolled and slightly pulled my front fenders. As much as I tried to keep the paint flexible with heat, sadly some parts still cracked and pealed off. I got some touch-up paint on the way to correct. That all said, this has eliminated all rubbing issues I had before.
Last night, I got my new Kenwood Excelon KDC-X702 installed to replace my 10+ year old Alpine CDA-9885. While the layout of the buttons is a little odd on the new deck, the sound is absolutely amazing. This deck really does bring life to my recently installed Infinity KAPPA speakers 5.25in (front) and 6.5in (rear). I simply had no idea the bass this deck could produce through those speakers. And when I turn on my JL Audio CS112LG-TW3 12in subwoofer, holy crap, it was like I was in a new vehicle. The sound was so full, rich, and generally awesome it's almost distracting to drive my car (no joke). Saying I'm blown away is just a understatement in my book. While this deck lack some of the new features like Apple Car Play and Android Auto, you can still activate Siri or Google Assistant which is more than enough as I got my phone on a mount to view Waze/Google Maps. The best part I got this for $129 as it was refurb unit so I feel it was a steal.
If you all are wondering what is in the storage area, that is just stick on foam that help stuff from rattling and sliding out.
