I like to look at my engine every now and then. Not that I would be able to do anything to it, I just like to know it's still there.
First, though, you have to find it. I got out the manual to find out how to get to it, and of course it had the usual photographs with indistinguishable details. I tried to follow the written instructions, just imagining what the photos would have looked like if they had been big enough to see. I didn't get very far.
You're supposed to pull the carpet up by a little string, raise it as high as you can, and "hook" it to something. I couldn't find anything to hook it to. The hook on the edge of the carpet looked like it might hook to something if it were facing the opposite direction, which of course it isn't, so you think you must be doing something wrong and maybe if you just keep raising and lowering the carpet, sooner or later it will latch onto something. It doesn't.
Anyway, I finally just held the carpet up with my head and unscrewed the engine cover. At least that was easy. But it's really hard to check anything with carpet backing in your face. I haven't mastered the braille dipstick yet.
Anyone else having any problem looking at their engine? Maybe I should just crawl under the car and look up at the bottom of it.
