#1 suspect would be that the moonroof drain hose has pulled free at the front right corner. Feel the right A pillar. Is is wet too?
Is that what the black plastic rail looking thing is on the sunroof?? Cause that popped off once when I went to open the sunroof, but I thought it was a guide rail or whatever so I just whacked it back in its place.

No, not the deflector.

Today I drove it! :) Hadn't in a month or two. Cause the driver's window fell into the door. Again. I think it's happened almost 1/2 dozen times since I bought it new. Like to send Will Smith to the home of whoever designed this mechanism.

Today I decided to PNO (Planned Non Op) my LS. Saves the price of registration ($190) and getting it smogged (about $60. Assuming it passes.) Also can let insurance lapse. I should make it a winter only car cause I cannot get the AC to work consistently in summer. Oh and I recently bought my wife's mkZ hybrid which gets twice the mileage that the LS does. And gasoline out here has a new additive - gold.

Right A Pillar is about as dry as Ben Shapiro's poor wife

Well, I guess that more investigation is needed then. 1. Is it water or coolant on the floor board?
Well, it doesn't smell sickly sweet. I'll check my coolant level when I get home

today i worked on the power steering pump, what a pain, looked straight forward to me, not really any issues installing the new pump at 231K miles, but the high pressure line is leaking out the center of the 18mm nut, damn! ok, tried to seal the shaft pipe with an o-ring, but no luck. looks like i'll be getting a new pressure line.

Got interior stripped mostly, got a lot of cleaning to do, then put it back together. Car has been sitting for 6 years with a leaking sunroof drain

Update: It finally rained, and wow. It's really friggin' bad.

Please don't tell me that I'm gonna have to have the headliner dropped to fix it.

I really suspect that you will. You don't have to get it all the way down and removed from the car, just down a few inches.

Drove it to Jersey and back for what's become it's monthly outing, about 25 miles. Took Mr. White, our '95 Escort, for the same outing. Mr. White received 14x6 wheels and Tiger Paws that are 2 sizes wider than stock last year last year and lost 1/4" of LR fender flange to stop it from rubbing. Both are fine handling cars.

Be-Be got her annual Fathers day wash & wax plus got the second L glued back on the tail light for the second time. I'm amazed I haven't lost that letter yet.

Missed another 1000 mile photo by one mile, whoops. And that might be the last 1000 miles that she travels, because the notorious Death Rattle is getting worse and I'm not putting another $2000 into this car when I've already gone through $4000 in the first 10 months and 8000 miles of ownership. I love this car, but I just can't stomach putting more money into it.
