Car stuff

Post by Cpt-Suicide » August 17th, 2016, 7:06 am

So my car broke down yesterday. No clue about anything related to cars(ask elvis). I get an estimate on the repair costs today, pray they don't destroy my budget. (repair costs are coming out of our budget to go to KY next week and tell the family face to face about the pregnancy! :) )

Now see if you had a carburetor you could just take a hammer and hit the float bowls, check the fuel filter, pop the distributor cap off to check your points AND spark and BOOM you are done with the easy stuff to make sure your car has what it needs to move FORWARD. Sadly I am sure you have some electrical something or other with a billion sensors and miles of wiring and yeah.. scan tools are your only friend at that point. It would be cool if it just needs a tuneup, those are not that expensive, unless... FERRARI

I will be praying for you though.

Heading out to pickup the car now. Ended up being the "Master cylinder" for my clutch. It was more money than I would have liked to pay, but it's cheaper than I expected. So that's good!

Really? I figured a motorhead like you would be one of the last ones to razz someone about driving a clutch.

My baby: 2011 Camaro 2SS/RS Manual 6 Speed
SonOfCuda: 2004 Mazda RX8 Manual 6 Speed
DaughterOfCuda: 2004 New Beetle Turbo S Manual 6 Speed

My family all knows how to get around.
(Of course there's the Charger RT and Silverado LTZ that are both V-8 Automatics.)

Manual transmission is the last great security feature for modern cars. heh

ALMOST everything I've driven was a manual, not all, but close. (And alot of that was 10 speed transmissions!) And my son's MX-5 is manual.

(Relax Elvis, that's his race car, his daily drivers have all been ex-police interceptors and American-made.)

I am an ex drag racer, manuals, garbage. A built up automatic transmission will destroy ANY manual tranny on the track ANY day of the week. You can keep your manuals, I will reap the rewards of the big dollars and the fame on the track and street.

dude. go buy a $10 broken lawn mower at a garage sale and tear it apart. i think basic knowledge of mechanics is a life skill worth having.
