How strong does a filter socket even need to be?
...it’s a road salt spreader, that’s road salt covering the shop floor.
Torque converter judder. Previous repair facility (non- franchise, privately owned) replaced tires, axles, 2 engine mounts chasing a “vibration on acceleration” concern...
...While driving the car with the computer linked, when the car is doing what the customer is concerned about, I can hit the “trigger” and the computer records all the data for the transmission. When I get back to the shop, I can configure all the sensor readings I want to see, convert it into line graph form, and voila! You have squiggly lines that represent what the customer is describing.

1/2 drive 14mm 12pt impact. Beaten half to death by me and my 4 pound hammerpurse. Lug nut started out life as a 19mm.
Caught it in the nick of time!
Transmission is falling out. 8 of 12 bolts missing and the only ones it has are at the bottom. Clutch pedal wouldn’t always return or go into gear every time. Clutch looks newer so probably didn’t get tightened it improperly tightened when reinstalled trans. Cummins ISX with 10 speed behind it.
Things that make you go HMMMM
