Chapter one of my project has come to a close and with the knowledge gained I've started a new chapter in my project. after my Geo Prizm Burned out I took the time to find out what the cause was. turns out there were a few things that lead up to that. but wasn't why I lost the car altogether. Truthfully I put off much need improvements and maintenance and did not do or complete some of the upgrades and repair because of that engines condition. I had decided that I would do an engine swap rather than save the engine. I later lost the car while relocating but not before I bought this corolla from a co-worker.
I still plan to do a full engine swap but this time I will make sure this engine will not burn out by picking up where I left off by improving the old with the new.

Bought this corolla from my coworker. She told all she knew was wrong with the car. The heater and ac didn't work or so she thought. The brake lights didn't ... Show morework or so she thought. There was and loud noise coming from the front right side of the car causing grinding friction. After a long drive home I had to time to evaluate the source of the problem. It was night so I waited until morning to tackle the problem. After jacking the car up I found the axel freely moving about inside of the hub, some how the hub broke where the axel & hub meet and connect. Wasn't able to fix the problem until after I moved, once all was set up and unpacked I tackled the problem and found the the front right side shock was also damaged, so I ended up getting some coilovers for 2 reasons
I wanted to see what's was so great about coilovers and that the oe replacements cost more money.
