New tires on
The Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo II’s are on the Rover. And I have noticed a rougher ride than I expected. 8 ply tires are much stiffer than the Yokohamas I had before. I notice this most when the CD player skips on the concrete seems of the highways. To have that quality of tire, I am learning to live with it.

One of the heater supply hoses failed. So as you do you replace them all. Well all included just two this time. Check out the replacement on the Heater Supply Hose Page.

After I finished the repair I got a Check Engine Light. The corresponding code was a 14.
More on that at on the Error Code 14.

BWB’s air conditioning cooling fans have always run. I never really thought about it until this latest episode. Upon reflection I realized that I am probably wasting a bit of fuel economy running them when they are not necessary, like when the air temp is below 20 degrees and I’m going 70mph on the highway. I found the problem with the help of the guys at Atlantic British. I sent them a picture of the sensors I tested and new had failed and they told me which sensor had failed that caused the Error 14 I was having. Their tech helped me make sense of the many temperature sensors.

I had asked for help on several boards with no responses. Either everyone already knew this info and didn’t feel like sharing or no one really understands it. Now I have a good idea of the sensors what happens when they fail. My meager understanding of these is found on Temp Sensors Page.
