So this Evo that came in smells like an ash tray, kid said well it runs bad. Okay so I go check it for codes and find 8 but the check engine light doesn't light up.
Kid: "oh yeah it's been on so long the light burned out"
Me: "facepalm, okay well it this to look at it initially and with this amount of codes it might need another diag after replacing parts
Kid: "ok we'll I prob can't fix it just need it diag"
Me: if you can't afford the car why did you buy it (didn't say it but sure thinking it)
So he leaves and I go to pull the car into the shop, well the clutch is basically gone.
The timing belt hasn't been done and it's at 115k
It needs O2 sensors and a MAF
It's running stupid lean
He is lucky the car hasn't died yet
