Took the box to Oriely's for a code scan. This was the results 😢😫😖.

I was going up hill to put in gas for the new work week, then it just started struggling. Even when I'm on level ground it sputters and starts shaking.

Codes:
P0441: Evap Emission System Incorrect Purge Flow

P0442: Evap Emission System Leak Detected (small leak)

P0446: Evap Emission System Vent Control Cirtuit

P0304: Cylinder 4 Misfire

P0302: Cylinder 2 Misfire

😢😢😢

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

So I was on here at the beginning of the month to say that I hadn't been here in a while but came back because I got a 2014 xB. Then last Friday this happened. $4,800 in damage. Thankfully the other guy's insurance is paying for it.

Picked up some Sonic Barrier from parts express. They have a new product that is like the dynamat with closed cell foam layer on top. Easy to install.

Interior chrome handles added for a little pop.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Took a peak at the rear hatch (top three pictures). There wasn't much sound deadening from the factory, just a couple small pieces and carpet attached to the plastic. I added some Sonic Barrier here and there. The hatch now closes with a nice solid sound and the plastic panel feels much more substantial from the extra mass.


Front windows tinted 50%. Overcast day so not the best lighting conditions.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

If you're static you drive up on small wood ramps or something similar to get under it.

It's on air suspension, so I can drive at a reasonable height. The DF210 springs aren't low enough that you need to worry about jacking it up. I had them before switching over to bags.

Ah haha I have some ramps but I made them from rail road ties, they're tall and don't have a decent angle up them so I have to put a block of wood in front to bounce up onto it to clear the lip.

It's good to hear the 210 springs don't go too low. I think now though is finding them at a good price. I was reading a thread and it said if you're paying more than 160 for them it's too much. All I can find now is 190 to 260. Lol but then I'll need cool wheels too! Ugh lol maybe some day
