Changed the oil and in the process spilled half a quart all over the rear of the engine. Stupid cold weather and thick oil. Got that cleaned up and went on to the rear differential. Where I discovered that at some point the rear diff cover has been replaced by a cover with NO DRAIN PLUG! Grrr. Anyway, checked the oil level and looks of it. It wasn't that dark and was just a tad low so I topped it off. Guess the new rear seal will have to wait until I feel really compelled to get oil all over the place.
Radiator flush and t-stat replacement is the next thing on the list. I'll do that in the next few weeks.
