After a fairly dramatic stuck handbrake (there was smoke pouring off the poor pads) I'm now reasonably confident I can change a rear caliper blindfolded. About 45 minutes from taking the wheel off to complete and driving away. Surprisingly the disks and pads weren't ruined!

Changed my old ass oil.......old from time not mileage.....and filter. Also found the sight tube on the oil catch can had disintegrated when pulling it to empty it. Found a coupla small bolts and plugged both holes for sight glass tube fittings after emptying can then put it back in place. Luckily there was not enough oil to cause mess leaking from broken sight tube and maybe? that might be what has been giving me a lean code? Car runs too smooth for it to be coil or plug and have checked and rechecked all connections from filter to throttle body along with all associated hoses. Just comes up once in a long while out of the blue. I can clear it and it'll stay gone for months before it maybe pops back up.

Removed brake fluid from resevoir with turkey injector and refilled with nice fresh stuff........better than nothing, not as good as full line flush.
