What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

So yesterday I overheard this story from the service desk. A customer who refused to make a repair said he would pick up his car when he could. It was in running condition. He decided to leave it in the back of our lot for over 6 months. When picking it up he discovered that it had been vandalized. The radio stack and heater controls were ripped from car. I know in some states its the shops responsibility but the guy left it here for months and we didn’t even charge him storage which we do for insurance companies. Not sure if we will have to fix it or not. Here is the fun part, he wanted to look at our security camera footage. The service writer said “FOR OVER SIX MONTHS?”. The guy thought about it for a moment and his brain engaged. He doesn’t need to look at it now. Will post a follow up if anything else comes up on this.
