I was wrong

That squeaking under the hood came back the very next day after my repairs. And now it's a bit of a rattle too. In fact now a week later, it's mostly a rattle and less squeaking. A much less annoying sound, in my opinion. So tomorrow I'm going to get in there again and replace the belt tensioner that I replaced two weeks ago, as my thought is that my original one didn't have enough play, and the new one had too much play. And hopefully the new new one will be just right. If it's not that, the only thing I can think of is the alternator because the noise is definitely coming from that area.

I might be taking the new fan clutch back off too. It's staying fully engaged way too much and adding a lot of resistance. Really zaps the horse power and makes the van sound like a jet until it disengages.

It'll all be done someday, right? Then maybe things can start moving forward again.

To be honest I've been shakey on the plan lately. The daily grind is at least easy, if nothing else. I wouldn't have to worry about anything except to keep doing what I'm doing day in and day out.

I leave you with scenes from my daily commute. It's been like this every day this week. In fact each picture is from a different day.
