Well today has been pretty horrible. I will upload the video when I figure out why it says it has a network error. Anyhow, I pulled my passenger bank valve cover off to watch the valves move during cranking. They all look to move the same. I didn't check the drivers side so maybe there is still damage, but I would think if one bank is good the other probably is too. I'll still see what the oil sample says.
So while removing the valve cover I bumped the air conditioning lines above it and guess I broke a seal or something. Refrigerant began spraying out of the bulkhead connector that meets at the firewall. Nothing I could do would stop it, and within a few minutes the system was empty.
I don't know what I did. Anyone have ideas? I can't fix it before we leave to move but need it fixed in two weeks.
Then, saw that my water pump was leaking from the gasket by one of the bolts. I thought I had a small seal leak but now I see there is a large leak. Hopefully that doesn't turn into something big for two weeks until I can just put in a replacement pump.
Then, to top things off, I removed my rotor and ABS sensor wire to see why my right front sensor stopped working and threw an ABS light. So I pull the connector and it's covered in grease (I greased it a month ago). Well, I clean the grease off and notice the tip of the sensor is abraded. I start cleaning the inside area out, wiping the tone ring with a q-tip, and every wipe shows metal flakes. Pretty good sized ones, like "holy crap that bearing is gone". But there's no play in the bearing, I can't move it by hand, no bad sounds or anything that give it away. Ideas?
Also the grease on the tone ring is now brown. It is Royal Purple grease, and the grease on the sensor was purple. I wonder why the color changed? I would only see it changing if it was under pressure but the tone ring shouldn't have any pressure points.
