Just your everyday abuse from a tanker door that’s not properly taken care of on the fleet field
Every car goes through a rigorous screening process.

Crankshaft balancer has separated.
Parts warehouses are all on strike. Aftermarket stores don’t carry the parts required for repair. So.... Until the strikes over, we have no parts.
This car sat under or around a tree for about 6 months. Customer... said that I must’ve done something to her car last time and wanted me to look at it...
Drove it in, lifted it up to find that pretty much every crevice of this car was filled with pine cones. I’d estimate around 300. It took me and buddy a couple hours to pull every single one out and assess the damage.
It needed a new serpentine belt, a new cabin air filter and a couple other things...
My arms were pretty sticky for a while but the shop smelt pretty nice too lol
...2011 Nissan Frontier! Had normal oil changes with 5w20 motorcraft normally, went to valvoline and had it done!
...tried baiting it out with some oats, he was not having it. Animal control is on the way.
...oh god imagine pressing out a bearing...
Dude hit a deer that was already dead in the road. Came in complaining of a bad smell. Took a few of us a few hours to scrape all the blood and guts off with acid and pry bars. It was winter at the time too so everything was fucking frozen.
...Then a few months later buddy traded the car in because he could still smell it.
Yeah, he got shit canned. Some of it sprayed in through the van window and got on the carpet and seat.
...From what I understand, one of the lube techs quickly aimed the hose into one of the oil drains while it was swinging and spraying all over. That oil drain happened to be full and the overflow caused old oil to pour on the ground.

Claims he didn’t “hit” anything. Said possibly it was a pot hole...

Alternator, starter, wheels, oil, tranny fluid, catalytic converter, and gas tank came off this mess
“Fuck this wiring harness in particular” -some rodent, probably.
Yes that is what you think it is. Just a bunch of black oil and goop built up from 14 years of “ just do what is covered under extended warranty “ lol. It’s probably 1/2" thick in some places.
