    There needs to be a part of your driving test that makes you know stuff like this before they'll let you drive on your own.

    I don't even understand car stuff but everyone was all "omg ur kidding right?"

    I started reading and thought, "Ok, so his nut is on too tight, what's so funny". Then I kept reading and... :D :D :D :D

    Ahh, the automotive equivalent of shoving a tire air-hose up a puppy's behind.

    hehehe, nice...

    Another one for you:
    We had a customer get pissed at our mechanics for taken too long to fix brakes... (it wasn’t that long really…)

    Basically his brakes where so screwed up that we had to take it off and wait to order new ones because there was nothing left to put back and lots of things damaged. While waiting we put wheels back on and pushed the car out to work on different one... everything was fine but guy got pissed that it took so long... took the car and drove off with out brakes... he didn’t make it too far...

    And yes he knew that car had no brakes...

    If this guy isn’t joking... I think they are close… then again.. this guy does drive dodge neon... chrysler is a bad thing to drive except if its jeep :D

    Well, there would be no oil in his engine. No oil, no lubrication. Lots of friction. Boom.

    And no lube hurts.
  14. Not so much "boom" as eeeeeeeeeerrkkkkkkkschhhhh and there you have an engine that just welded itself together and seized. And also "kserg" that's a funny story too, actually I live in a relatively small town and I know a guy that went weeks without brakes literally, he just would downshift until he was barely rolling up to a stop sign or light and then e-brake it. :eek:
