Sorry, didn't notice this post until now. Ballpark guessing about $300 in parts and stuff so far (including fluids), maybe less.

Refrigerant refilled, AC blows nice and cold now. Just got my ATF in the mail today, will change that out at my next convenience.

That's a lot less than what I've put into mine (mine's an I4 '02 coupe), besides regular maintenance stuff I've had to replace 3 ball bearings and the clutch. sad.gif

Doing all work yourself helps cut the cost down a lot. To be fair, $300 might be the low end, it might be $400ish, I just can't be fucked to pull up receipts and stuff.

True, but I don't have the equipment or know how to replace a clutch lol... What's pretty nuts is I initially looked into getting an OEM clutch, the thing was nearly $600 just for the parts.

OEMs charge a lot for clutches, generally. Fun fact, a high number of OEM clutches are made by Sachs, which you can get from a parts store. Some Japanese OEMs use Exedy as well, I know the Evo and STi OEM clutches are both Exedy.

Yeah, my original clutch was an Exedy, I ended up going with another brand, Luk, for my clutch since it was considerably cheaper, when I replaced the clutch about a year and a half ago.

300 is way less than I thought seeing how you were systematically replacing everything in your car. laugh.gif

Couple updates:

-Cleaned intake and EGR port, hopefully no problem there anymore
-Fixed the plastic shield under the front bumper that came loose and was hanging (thank god for zipties)
-Changed oil and oil filter

After researching the pros and cons (more like myths) of flushing ATF on high mileage cars, I'll be doing it soon, the DIY return hose method. Debating whether or not to get two new filters, one to go in after the "flush", the other to put in after a bit of driving with the first new one in case the new ATF flows a lot of chunks of gunk into it. I don't know if the ATF was ever changed (probably not) and it does have 78k on the odo.

Just posting a checklist of things I want to do to the car for reference. I never did change the ATF, kinda too scared by the old wives' tale of changing on a higher mileage / worn tranny. Maybe later.

High Priority:
-Fix horn switch
-Fix automatic locks (only one working is the driver door's, rest probably just need new actuators)
-Get new wiper blades
-Get sun shades
-Change oil (not dire, but been around 4.5k so almost about time)
-Wax body (summer's about in full force and I HATE seeing cars with clear coat damage)

Mid Priority:
-Get new tires (current ones are physically okay, but they're three different brands, and one has a slight bulge causing steering wheel wobble)
-Pick passenger front fender off clean junk car (current is hideously dented in two spots)
-Pick passenger rocker panel off clean junk car (current is scraped badly)
-Fix cruise control (arms, but does not function)
-Get seat covers (driver seat leather is absolutely obliterated, basically sitting on foam)

Low Priority:
-Replace ATF
-New spark plugs (old ones are fine, just a bit blackened from running lean when the primary O2 was broken)
-New fob (current one's case is broken)
-Fix clock (even after replacing the old light, it's extremely dim)
-Fix radio (prev. owner put in some MAXMAX bootleg head unit, barely works for shit - have and will install OEM tape deck)
-New map light button (left one broke off [prev. owner] and is nonexistent)
-New cup holder cover (doesn't stay closed)
-Misc. door panel trim (screw covers mostly)
-New steering wheel maybe? (current is quite worn)

Lotta unimportant nitpicks, but this is basically everything wrong with the car I can conceivably fix now. Need to make a junkyard run sometime.
