After hitting this car really hard for the first 3 weeks I have taken it easier for this past week. Each night after work I have driven this car 4 to 8 miles for a total of about 35 miles. The more I drive it the better it is running. It does have some blow by coming from the PCV but with 90,000 miles on old oil technology this does not surprise me really. I flushed out the cooling system again Wednesday and is coming out really clean now. I will drain it tomorrow and add antifreeze. I will finish putting the interior back in it also this weekend.
After all the cleaning and deodorizing I have done on the interior parts and trunk area the smell was so much better. Every now and then I would get a slight smell of mouse still but not very much. I started looking in more areas and believe I found the last mouse nest. It was inside the trunk lid. I used a small hook and a shop vac and now have it completely cleaned out and sprayed more pet deodorizer inside the trunk lid. I want to think that will take car of the last of the smells but we will see.
