Default Sometimes i hate

Working on customers cars, seriously some of the stupid **** they do to them is beyond me.

So far today:

Subaru wrx 2011 with nitrous
Mazda RX8 with nitrous

These guys are buddies and both around 50

The exhaust job on both are hideous, and the drone in the RX8 at any speed is ridiculous.

Anybody else a mechanic on here?

I hear nitrous is second only to detonation as the best thing for subaru pistons. The bigger the shot the better.

What kinda deal will you give me?

I found the nit because the customer was complaining of an misfire problem cylinder 1.. (have a feeling cracked ring) didn't charge anything told him sorry we weren't gonna work on it. Some **** you work on and find out things and just have to pull out the rug from under them before your kicking your ass down the road

We tried running a cleaner then doing an oil change. It took out a lot of sludge, but the engine ended up locking up. After removing the valve covers you can see how bad it was, and you could tell the cleaner helped in some areas but yeah it was bad. Opening it up and seeing that was like

I am not a mechanic, but I work in sales and I hear it from the techs out back, and I see my share with people in sales too.

Okay this is my last round

quality tire patch


this is what happens when you grind your brakes down to nothing that it slides between the bracket and stops the wheel from turning... she drove this until the tire blew out because she didn't hear it (side note two 15 inch subs in the back)

Great thread - Like a real "FAIL" thread without just searching the internet for fail pics, but real life stuff. Amazing how stupid people are.

That's what I was thinking, let alone grinding metal to metal brakes on all axles before even getting to that point. I wish I had taken more pictures it was ridiculous..

the car was also in very bad shape. Oil was 3 qts low (took 5), bad fluids all around, ect.
