Driving is hard
We’re gonna need a LOT of rice.
...they told me it was the right one
...might have to use the shrinker
Neither rad nor cool.
...the noise was obvious, not to mention the wheel leaning inwards really bad. Dude declined the work initially (drivers UCA, 4 tires, rear brakes, alignment), but then later changed his mind. He only got 1 tire (drive front, belts were showing), the UCA and the alignment.
So we had a 6.6l come in with no oil pressure, running fine though. Scanned it, no oil pressure showing and after testing the wires decided it needed an oil pressure sending unit. Pull the sensor out and diesel fuel starts coming out...hm, that’s odd. Maybe it’s fresh oil, not likely to look that clean when it’s an 03, but going through the process nonetheless. Pull the drain plug and it poured gallons worth of diesel fuel...
Customer doesn’t want to pay for the extra diag to check the injectors, so we filled it back up and they’re gonna pass it off to the next person
Using an abrasive pad like a Scotchbrite or Brillo to clean the gasket surfaces will cause very abrasive particulate to get into the oil channels. When you fire up the engine after doing the job, there’s a momentary oil starvation aggravated by the abrasive particulate, and scores the rod bearings, halfshells, etc until the galleries are full of oil and everything resumes flowing normally. 10-15k down the road, you get a catastrophic crankshaft wobble...
One post actually failed over night then the car slipped and got caught on the the side that didn’t fail. Crane had to put its arm inside the shop and lift with cables, then retract the arm with car attached. Total mess...
Golf ball dimple aero
Really tricky spot. Got it half way out with a ball joint press and the rest of the way with the slide hammer. Here’s the important bit
Air hammered it back in. Not on the stud obviously
So the story behind this one the car was towed into our shop from another shop. The owner had driven it there for a routine service. That shop called her and told her that they had tried to change the spark plugs but someone had put oversized ones in before and now they have to pull the cylinder head off. She told them to go ahead with it then they rang back telling her it needed a new engine. Since she had driven the car there and it was running fine before this she thought something was odd. So she called us and arranged to have it towed to our shop. This is what we can see. Not 100% sure what the other shop did but it was nasty!
Nice pressure or crack pipe
It’s dead, Jim.
So the story is apparently that someone also threw up in between the back seats, pressure washed it and put hay on top of it to suck the moisture out. It really does smell like absolute shit.
What in TARnation?
I felt horrible for the guy, he just bought it from a shady dealer without a ppi...
Front and rear suspension over haul, headgaskets, valve cover gaskets, steering rack, p/s pump. Tgv deleted, countless codes, wont pass emissions. The list goes on
...this one has been a while. The service writers have it on display as what not to do
Cars a fuckin turd... Every possible service light on, wheel bent in front, that broken tie rod, control arm bushings with a lot of play, needs new tires and new brakes.
...Its a caddy cts.
...I don’t understand how people crash their cars into the VERY LARGE RED TRUCK COVERED IN FLASHING LIGHTS!
