Re: C0226 and C0268 2005 Chevy Avalanche

Wheel speed missing is usually a faulty wheel speed sensor. Easier to just replace the hub assembly as its 10 years old anyways. Pump motor shorted means you need a new ABS pump and module.

Re: Audi Mechanic takes customer's car home for weekend

Flat rate can work in your favor. If you have multiple stalls, and there is more work then there are techs. I started the morning with 32hrs. I have 10ish already this morning and its just now lunch...

Re: The cars customers bring into the shop

Here is one that got towed in the other day. Guy bought a 166k used Dmax to use in the oil fields. Throws monster tires, lift, and cranks up the engine, doesn't bother to upgrade steering or axles....

Re: The way people sit when driving

You'd be surprised. But very rarely does a man bring in a HD truck. Usually the biggest trucks pulling on the lot are driven by women. I assume it's because their husbands are at work.

Re: A simple little tough job

The work looks phenomenological, Kevin. And I doubt black fingers will be an issue given how dirty it can be loading and operating a bolt gun.

Re: The way people sit when driving

I can't beleive how many cars I get into on a daily basis with the seat as high as it will go, nearly as far forward as it will go, and pedals all the way up. I have to stand there for 5 minutes and...

Re: Audi Mechanic takes customer's car home for weekend

Our dumbass writers don't even usually pay us for diag time. We get paid to make the repair and that's it.

Re: Looking at a Truck Tomorrow.

26,000? Thats way low. Biggest failure points on that generation are brake lines and front hubs.

Re: Audi Mechanic takes customer's car home for weekend

I think the biggest disconnect in this thread is that nearly every poster is on this forum because they love cars/tools/garages. Most people that aren't techs, work on their own cars. So it is such a...

Re: Whats a cool but different engine for a muscle car?

Want to be different. How about the 4.4l SC northstar out of STS-V. 469hp/439tq.

Or use the new TT 3.6 from the CTS.

Re: Audi Mechanic takes customer's car home for weekend

It is a big liability. We have had a few cars damaged in wreck or whatnot while employees were driving them. Of course the dealership pays for any and all repairs.

But 10x as many cars get...

Re: Audi Mechanic takes customer's car home for weekend

Service manager or writer will drive customer's cars home often to try to replicate an intermittent concern. But the customer is always notified about this.

Re: The cars customers bring into the shop

They should be as long as you have the same year 3.6. Some Cadillac used the 3.0. You'll need to swap oil pans and intakes I think.

You can't lay down a fridge. The oil will get into the cylinders of the compressor
