Afternoon Wrap-Up Afternoon Wrap-Up

Dug into the Golf and did theinlet O2 this afternoon. It was stuck in worse than anything I’ve ever tried to turn, and thanks to a sway bar and the car only being on ramps, I couldn’t use a breaker bar. I ran to Lowes and bought a 7/8 wrench (how is that the only size we don’t have between three normal toolboxes and…

The (volunteer) docents are highly knowledgeable and a joy to talk to,…

Mechanics of Oppo... Warranty Work Question Mechanics of Oppo... Warranty Work Question

So, here’s a question about work quality and pay. Say there’s a job that normally pays 3.5 hours, but as warranty work, pays 1.5 (I really think this is shitty. Charge customers less, but still pay the mechanics...). In reality, the job takes 3 hours. Would you say if warranty work comes in and you actually want to…

I knew it was small, but wow.

Until you open the hood, it contains both a d13b and a k20a.

Whatup. I’m sure that like many of you, I’ve been walking or driving somewhere and seen one of these abominations.
