truck was stuck in a flood, detailed then sold at auction in a different state. buyer had no idea it was ever underwater.

i chipped some of it off until i got to the filter then left it overnight on the lift. The transmission was ruined, the ice cracked countless parts of the valve body and blew all the seals out

I wasn’t there but apparently the guy was doing an oil change and went to start the car and somehow had it floored and smashed that box into the wall.

the box went flush with the wall and actually shoved all of our lockers in the break room at least a foot and the shock of the impact knocked an entire light fixture out of the ceiling.

that door leads right to the waiting area for all of our customers.

...it’s actually an auto. Car only has 2,200 miles. I think this is the first time I’ve seen this fault code description that specifically mentions to void warranty. I wonder what the end result would be on a guided test plan...

2019 Durango GT. Customer complaint of a CEL. 156 miles on vehicle. DTCs for implausible engine oil temp, cylinder 1 misfire, and implausible PCM data.

Never seen anything like this before. That must have been loud as fuck.

I think it’s going to be fixed. The miles are too low for us to scrap it.

I thought it was like a hundred or something that fell behind the dash on accident when I first saw it because I couldn’t see the whole thing. That alone got me excited, but when I reached my hand in there and felt how thick it was I was freaking the fuck out. Honestly I’m alright that it was fake so I didn’t have to decide between my morals and my bank account.

If you go over 30k miles without changing your oil, like this person, it doesn’t really matter what kind of oil you use.

Everyone I’ve talked to says the switch doesn’t do anything so I’ve always assumed it’s for nothing.

It’s a running gag in the Air Force to label this specific switch with random things like “Nukes” or “chem trails”...

This is the first jet I’ve seen with a professional sticker out on above the dial 😂
