Self Sabotage?

Anthony Technical Support Specialist Kirkwood, Pennsylvania Posted   Latest  

Hi Group:

Most things in life and nature have trade-offs. They're not inherently good or bad. There is something to be said for cars not having much real estate available. It's not as easy to hide things in a car as it used to be. Now, trucks on the other hand,... How many ways can you think of that something like this can make your life "interesting" when it comes to diagnosing an issue?

People that put this kind of stuff (crap) on their vehicles should also go out and buy one of those handy dandy devices that plug into the DLC and tell you exactly what’s wrong with your vehicle. That way they won’t have to pay a professional to diagnose and track down where they hid that device on the vehicle so he can remove it and explain to them why it was causing the problem in the first

Yeah, or "oh, I knew about that, it always does that, you just have to....." and they tell you about some secret switch to turn the fuel pump on.

Yeah you’ve gotta love those “ secret procedures “ that they don’t bother to tell you about but then can’t understand why it took so long for you to figure out what was wrong. Or my favourite, oh that’s what I meant. Customer brings in his Dodge cargo van, says the tail lights don’t work. Check tail lights, they check fine. Check park lights, OK. Check all lights, brake lights don’t work. Inform

Half the professionals I know can't even properly state whether a car is a no-crank or a crank-no-start. Have yet to see a car "turn over". ;-)

Hi Geoff: I've seen an engine turn over. Twas a 1963 Impala with a 230. A guy I worked with at the station bought it out from under me. This thing leaked oil like a sieve. He ended up with 5 quarts of STP in it just to keep something in the pan. The first cold snap when he tried to start it, ripped the motor mounts right out of it. The engine turned over and was laying on the inner fender well…
