Brand new QX60 came in for a quick oil change. This particular tech was known to do some dumb shit. He racked the car wrong and had it much too far foreword on the lift. Can’t believe no one got hurt. He was fired immediately.

Frieghtliner Cab SAM module, apparently they stop working after internally shorting out and catching on fire. Didn’t have a single blown fuse on the unit itself but did blow a 100amp mega fuse in the Power distribution module that supply’s it battery power.

1999 Windstar in for oil change... Rest of the car was just as interesting. Frame was literally almost gone with rot, tires mismatched and older than I thought possible, multiple massive oil leaks, no brakes, interior smelled lovely, the whole shooting match.
