Purged #3 cylinder of oil. Replaced plugs and wires and put in new ignition coil. She runs quite nice now.

Got my new temp sensor put in. Here was the old one. Going to do my thermostat tomorrow morning seeing as it didn't really help. The gauge in the cab still only went up right past the C. I'm hoping the thermostat will resolve it. The heat is warm butt not hot so we will see tomorrow.

Painted my bumper and grille. Have to redo the grille because i was in a hurry and didnt clean or prime it. Oops. But it turned out pretty good. Gonna paint the "Ranger" emblems next.

Side note, anyone know how to remove the chrome piece around the turn signals?

Yeah, and it isn't so much her driving but her place of employment. I have let her use the vehicle before, and I have gotten it back with door dings. Hopefully, it will work out, but I needed our family vehicle to take my mom to work because her car needs a starter or alternator.
