Today marks the end of another era. I have one more vehicle on the schedule for Monday. It will be the last vehicle I work on at this location. For whatever reason my landlord decided to lease my shop out from under me after 9 years. So for the next 8 days I will be packing up the shop while trying to find a different location, temporary storage, or buyers for equipment and I'll go do something else.
It's been a good run. Many customers, IF I just get out of the business, will attain great levels of sticker shock when they price other shops for repairs. Maybe I pampered some too much? 😉
To all who stuck with me, I THANK YOU!! When I know the script for the next era, I will let everyone know.

The cheap way to find what fluid is leaking or keeping your garage floor clean....

Investigating Mysterious Issues Seeing through the filth, grime and crud, and finding their source only takes a tiny bit of common sense and an old piece of cardboard.

To my valued customers,

Due to the increasing costs of accepting credit cards, effective April 1st, I am switching to a new credit card processor. All credit card transactions will incur a fee from your credit card company of 3% added to the transaction, which is collected by your credit card company. I do not receive any of this fee. Cash, check, or debit cards will not be charged. My P.O.S. terminal will automatically differentiate credit from debit cards.

Happy hump day!

Saw this on a buddy's page, and it's too good not to share.
A gynecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic. He went to the local technical college, signed up for evening classes, attended diligently, and learned all he could. When the time of the practical exam approached, the gynecologist prepared carefully for weeks, and completed the exam with tremendous skill. When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of 150%. Fearing an error, he called the Instructor, saying, "I don't want to appear ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there is an error in the grade?" "The instructor said, "During the exam, you took the engine apart perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark." After a pause, the instructor added, "I gave you an extra 50% because you did it all through the exhaust pipe, which I've never seen done in my entire career".

I was pretty busy this week, even on Independence Day (just not here), so I failed to post that July 5th, 2017 is day 1 of year #6. I have a hard time believing this shop has been open (and survived) 5 years already.

How to fix the check engine light

Sometimes it is the only economical and logical way to fix it.

It helps if you put all the bellhousing and motor mount bolts in and tighten them. I'm pretty sure the motor wanted to be somewhere else though....even with no legs.

It is common knowledge that if there are no spare parts, especially when working on the dash, you did it wrong. ;)
