Best I can tell is that the bracket shorted... long enough for it to heat up and melt through part of the battery.

I think they were a little lazy on oil changes and with a heavy work van the motor didn’t like that

It’s only on the bottom of the tank and about a 1/4 inch thick. I’m thinking the truck sat for an EXTENDED period of time at some point.

2007 Honda Odyssey 3.5. Timing belt and all components replaced 26,500 miles/2 years ago. Loud rattle from idle to 2500 rpm then stops. This is what I found when I popped the timing belt cover. Apparently this is a known problem of premature tensioner failure. Still in time, replaced tensioner and all is quiet.

They did all sorts of stuff to this truck. Including hitting a tree (that’s why it’s in the shop now, don’t think their $1100 is gonna fix it)

They’re not sharp, but at really high rpm and that much momentum I guess they slice faces like butter

...cut the axle off with a torch buy a new axle and knuckle and then do the wheel bearing...

...customer said we’re over charging and it shouldn’t cost that much. We’re crooks and YouTube said it’s easy to do. Never coming back apparently. 👍🏻🤣

This originally came in as a cx complaint of clunk in the front end which turned out to be the fact the control arm is moving around since where it’s supposed to be attached to doesn’t exist anymore which is the Swiss cheese subframes fault

We replaced the same studs in august of 2019 for the same problem (but not this bad). She had her hub replaced later and I don’t think they tightened the lugs very well. She lasted 11000 miles until she replaced them today

Charged for a dismount and mount and balance. And rotate.

I was pulling the dash to remove the blend door actuators...

Was clearing out papers in an old man’s clean car, seemed like a bunch of paperwork etc. I Don’t look at it, just gather it up and put it back when I’m done. Old man had a bare razor blade, edge up in with the paperwork and it went between my fingernail, slicing it straight down the side. Now I know how Vietnam POW’s felt with the bamboo nail torture. Fuck me.

To clarify, this is not from a coca-cola plant, it’s a coke plant in a steel mill...

...that stuff is nasty. It hardens pretty fast, and gets into any and all crevices. Time depends on how long it takes to clear the area that you’re working on.

2019 Subaru Ascent comes in with an Eyesight “off” light. Customer bought the car a year and a half ago and hasn’t been in since. Said the lights been on for a few months. I have a sneaking suspicion it’s been on ever since he put his EZ-pass in the car..
