I have come to the conclusion that...

1) Auto engineers are sadistic (they like to hide things)

2) You need to have the precision of a surgeon and the brute strength of the HULK all while doing something in a space that’s suitable for a knome.

3) If your not fortunate enough to have a fully equipped garage , only an average tool box and street lighting ....your assesd out!

4) Murphy's law....who the hell came up with it, and why the hell did he have to make it a law that applies to EVERYTHING!

4)Mechanics and Doctors are basically the same type of people who just took different career paths. You KNOW what’s wrong when you go to see them, but they insist on more tests/diagnostics, exams/taking things apart. And no matter what the problem actually IS, they still insist they know more than you and will convince you your in dire need of overpriced parts/prescriptions whether you really need them or not.

5) The "high"/smooth running last only for a short time and you still have the same ailment/troublesome car that you began with, until you find one that doesn’t know the answer for everything and will admit it then refer you to someone/shop who does! . If you don’t have insurance or extended warranty your gonna get it up the ass like it or not!

Just to lighten up the mood for all of the "curb side" mechanics out thire.

You Bet I am. LOL

It was stuffing hot, and I lent a workmate a tool worth about $400 and they broke it.

But I will be right back hear tomorrow-dribbling agene.

Dribble, dribble, dribble.

Bill you must learn, it’s all about parsing the blame.
Remember a good mechanic blames the parts, supplier, Tool’s then himself LOL.

Dribble, dribble.

All this dribbling is making me thirsty And the carpet wet.

I remember a mechanic telling a doctor :-

"I can pull an engine apart, replace the oil pump, reasemble it and it runs as good as new."

How come you get $1000 an hour and I get $20 ?

The Doctor replied: : Try doing that through the exhaust pipe whilst the engine is running !"

You got to start Young LOL; I am actually fairly easygoing despite what some of people I know think, I do tend to give that impression sometimes, that I am a bit Agro. I have some people at work thinking I am an angry man it’s quite amusing.

But 1 throe 5 is all true and even with the equipped toolbox you can still be up the creek.

You got to relive the pressure.

You need arms with at least 6 elbows to reach the most mundane things under the bonnet.

Instruction manuals always illustrate the "overseas market" models (lhd with options that are not in the manual or not on our car).

Dealers never have "that part" in stock.

The new car radios are a form of entertainment all of their own. (try swiching one to a particular frequency)

One of the first laws of mechanics that I learnt was that if you pull something apart often enough, eventually you will have enough left over parts to build another one of whatever it was you were pulling apart.

Well Exploder you come to right place for some sympathy, if my doctor was like my machanic I'd probably be on my 4th heart by now and a hip that we just can't get into alignment, probably three hip replacements later. My blood would be transfused with the wrong type and I would probably be overheating. I'd get no warranty and any complaints would be passed off as being within tolerances. Not only that I would get the pleasure of seeing him more often but at least I could bulk bill.

Kind regards
