Reddit’s Just Rolled into the Shop is a veritable cornucopia of the many wonders and oddities of shop lyfe. You never know what’s gonna roll in. Here’s what caught my eye this week.

I wish I could say this was uncommon, but my shop has four getting replaced right now and six more waiting out back...

You probably already saw this one, but the reddit post offers some more clues as to what happened:

A coworker took this 2017 gulia on a test drive with a customer, wet roads and a driver who wasn’t used to the power (id guess) downshifted and spun the rear end, ended up in someone’s yard.

Transmission case was cracked due to expanding ice as well...

As far as I can tell it rolled over on its side and slid into a creek or river and filled up with water. It’s low twenties here

We still don’t know what exactly exploded, it’s everywhere tho.
Even on the mirrors.

...didn’t expect a factory filter to be on that tight. Usually it’s the cars that haven’t been to the dealership for their last oil change.

Don’t do coke, kids.


Rear driveshaft front u-joint went bad, broke the transmission case, transmission adapter, transfer case tail shaft housing, driveshaft skip yoke, differential pinion bearings and who knows what else inside those units. Probably couldn’t hear the u-joint over the straight exhaust, first indication of a problem was that it wouldn’t move.

Naturally it didn’t run any better with the filter re-installed... approx 100 miles since the oil was changed, thankfully not at this shop...
