Post 2001 Intrigue projects

Still working on my 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue at the moment and got the following done since September, 2018:
  1. Spark plugs
  2. Thermostat replacement
  3. Power steering w/ reservoir replacement
  4. Oil change
  5. O2 sensor (post-Catalytic converter) replacement
  6. Coolant flush and crimp hose fix (no leaks or holes)
  7. Exhaust "fix"
  8. EVAP Purge Solenoid replacement
  9. Fuel cap replacement
  10. Battery replacement
  11. Coolant tank swap
  12. Fuel Tank Pressure (FTP) sensor replacement (code P0446 suggested to replace it)
  13. Belt tensioner assembly and belt replacement (old pulley was damaged from the coolant leak, replaced the pulley with a new one and kept it in the garage as a spare in case the new one snaps and kept the old belt as that had no snags, stretch marks, cracks, or bigger grooves)
  14. Front struts and tire replacement; alignment (Belle Tire)
  15. Better exhaust repair (new exhaust flange gasket and clamps)
  16. Coolant sensor replacement (new one in the tank was defective, the old one still works, swapped o-ring gasket material as the old o-ring gasket had cracks)

Stalling issue went away after the fuel cap and pressure sensor replacement (did a lot to rule out the stalling problem) and the exhaust was so loud, I couldn't hear anything from my radio and after reworking the exhaust with a gasket and new clamps, the car runs a heck of a lot quieter which is music to my ears. The coolant light would light up with the marker set to either full cold (engine cold) or full hot (engine warmed up), and fortunately, I kept the old sensor, swapped them around, and no more light turning on after driving long distances.

Future projects will be as follows after I get a better job as I'm going to be out of a job this Friday as my contract expires:
  1. Brake job (front and rear pads and rotors, fluid flush, new caliper bleeder screws) --> have almost all of the parts needed, just need new front rotors, bleeder screws, and clear vacuum hoses to place above the bleeder screw to watch the fluid change from black to clear brown.
  2. ABS repairs (wiring harness or wheel hub assembly issues, will look further) --> lots of DeoxIt D5 and vinegar left (Q-tips soaked in vinegar for removing the acid/corrosion and DeoxIt D5 for pure contact cleaning and Dielectrical grease to protect the contact points from water, mud, and other stuff
  3. Fuel gauge repairs (new float sensor and fuel filter replacement after 30K miles) --> need to buy a new float sensor (OEM only), have the fuel filter ready
  4. Rear strut replacement (lower than the front end and double-bounces after pressing down on the trunk door and letting go)
  5. Front lower controller arm assembly replacement
  6. Front stabilizer/sway bar assembly replacement

Current mileage: 120,040
