Thanks again Dave -

I suppose I'll head on over the the Delco and Motorcraft distributor in the 
morning then.  Both cars are running perfectly, but I want to give them a 
little attention before it starts snowing seriously.  Maybe even the dreaded 
gas-in-the-face fuel filter replacement might be in the offing for the 
Yukon.   God I hate to do that job - smelling gas on my hands and clothes 
all day afterward too.

>From what I hear the talking heads on TV say (even noted automotive 
authority Geraldo Rivera took a shot at GM's designs and reliability this 
morning), it sounds like my GM and Ford cars are the only ones in the world 
that hold up well.

I want to keep it that way.   ;-)
