My favorite JRitS posts of the week, Vol. 89

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.

At least it wasn’t hanging from the crane!

Little backstory: 15 F150 came in for complaint of no Running Lights. Traced it to OPs harness where they had spilled some acidic substance on the harness and it just melted it away. If touched it would turn into a jello goo. Here are some pictures of me about half way through replacing that harness - the entire body harness.
Dash, Seats, Carpet and Headliner all had to come out. Fun!

Getting it unstuck isn’t that big a chore. Just had to get 2 guys who aren’t idiots to pull it out.

Engine needed to come out and we don’t have a powertrain table so I had to “just do it”. Lots of puckering going on in my trousers as I lifted the transit away from the engine.

Car came in as no start, CEL. I couldn’t get the car to start on a jump pack, either; weak crank. Pushed it into the shop and ran it on a GR-8 for an hour or so, but it registered as good battery. It would start now, though quite rich, but I could pull the code now - P0117 iirc. The photos should speak for themselves on the hellhole this turned into :)

2015 Ford F-250 ...It’s either Motorcraft or NAPA if it was replaced here at some point. I don’t see any record of a replacement

Don’t forget to “safety wire” your sensors!

the general consensus is that they dropped a cog accidentally and this caused catastrophic failure. I have seen an engine run relatively well that had a camshaft broken but the angle of the break was much steeper so it was still being driven.

We had two master techs(one was with the apprentice who drive it on, the other came to make sure there wasn’t any bias) look it over once they got it off, along with the advisor and the customer. To my knowledge, there’s nothing damaged other than the apprentice’s pride.

...we cut a hole in the side of a jug attached a hose to the front of it then placed it on a small ladder in front and forced the hose down the filler and filled the jug via the hole in the side.

2012 Chevy Cruze 5-speed, tech said the brakes gave out when he tried leaving the building so he flew right through door. Luckily for him it was a used car instead of a customer vehicle... my guess is it wasnt bled correctly or something along those lines.
