    Lately I've been trying to knock out some little things on the car that have been bothering me. The main thing has been the idle. It has a rough idle on warm starts that I can't figure out. The idle will dip down to about 500 rpm and won't rev for a few seconds. After maybe 15-20 seconds it will correct itself and everything is normal. I bought another MAF from the junkyard as well as 2 extra IACs plus I already tried a spare IAC that we had. I also cleaned the throttle body. Hopefully IAC number 4 will work. I haven't driven the car since swapping it out yesterday.

    This weekend I also adjusted my parking brake, and bled/flushed the brakes. The old fluid looked like syrup or Coke. Lastly, I sealed the surface rust that was forming on the back of the driver front and passenger front doors as well as the inside part of the trunklid. The rust converter is actually really nice. It dries clear. I went overboard with the tape. You definitely don't want to get it on the exterior paint but when it dries it kind of looks like hot glue but not as thick.

    Random pics below... My dad bought a trailer for his p5 too.

    I forgot to mention that I cleaned the EGR valve as well. I may try to swap that out with a spare.
