...I lose my mind down here during water-torture season...
Lowered ...G35 sedan
didnt get a picture but I tore the boot off to check and it was bone dry / rusty. If they had a zerk fitting from the factory they’d still probably be good, 170k mile on this one surprisingly.
07 Dodge Ram Cummins
Customer laughed and said ‘Ha, shit happens!’
I think I like her. Wouldn’t have her work on my car, but I like her.
Who needs bearings? Good for another million.
So this car came in after the customer did the clutch job at home and then the car had no crank no start after. Found out they squished the wiring harness between the engine and transmission so I had to pull the transmission back to pull the harness out. I was gonna take the transmission completely out until I saw this abomination. I’m assuming they didn’t have a 12 point swivel socket or wrench and they decided to weld nuts onto the 12 point bolts so they could turn them
Rusty valve springs, came off a 2000 Chevy Malibu v6
...the PCV valve and oil pressure sensor where all plugged up with rock hard oil
Give me some slack bro!
Manager was pretty sad that he had to do it. He tried to convince corporate to let it slide
It was missing several of the bolts for the cover which let it run out of oil slowly. Lack of lube makes heat which ruins the heat treating on the gears.
...also it got hot as fuck and the teeth that were laying in the bottom of the housing were bluish
I put the wrench there, I was about to drain the oil when I looked up at the subframe
Before that dude took it home we named it “2012 bmw 535xi”
A never-ending source of counter-intuitive frustration
Yours is fast but mine is slow...

...both front CV’s bands came off the boots and they were fillled with water. That’s cv grease and water/mud, etc.
They are the factory’s... The clamps still look completely in tact. No evidence of strike, tears, nada. And it’s BOTH sides equally. Same condition.
...it’s a 25 year old forklift that has many problems...
