Spent time at the Autoglass shop. Not happy. How is it that you can drive 4.5 hours to a small city in North Dakota that I really enjoy going to......and 4.45 hours back to Saskatchewan without a problem, and when you are 5 minutes, .....yes 5 frigging minutes from home, a truck flies by you, and smashes an $849.50 dollar windshield (Canadian) in a 2016 GMC Sierra...... ? And I mean smashed, not chipped.Nobody's fault, but I'm kinda grouchy today.

Life is short, so if you don't have the strength to laugh at yourself,
call me.....I'll laugh at you!

Took the 19 year-old SUV into the shop for the annual moor vehicle inspection - always a good day when a 19 year old vehicle passes inspection needing no work. Now time to post it for sale on-line.

I know the feeling, I was sitting behind a stupid woman spinning her studded tires last January and as I was in the process of putting my little Trax in reverse to back away from that idiot I heard and saw the stud hit my windshield. Words cannot express the frustration felt. Lady if you aren't going nowhere with studded tires at low power what makes you think you are going to be further ahead at full throttle. I could go on ranting but you intelligent people know what I mean.

CRV? If they passed it, don't drive it, sell it. I can't believe the K frame passed on a 2000. They all rot beyond repair way earlier than that. Hopefully the buyer will get it checked by a different shop for their safety.

man, i remember those days of vehicle inspections in Massachusetts. I used to put a pack of Marlboro cigs on the dash where the sticker(red) was supposed to be because my older junker VW could never pass. there used to be an old guy who ran one of the stations that would sometimes pass you if he were real tired and not checking things. people said if you slipped him a couple bucks he would give you a sticker but I was so young and dumb did not know how to bribe him.

then i moved to California that does not inspect but have strict smog laws. now that i am older I think that's a good thing.keep your vehicles properly tuned and get good gas mileage.

Wanted to share myexperience on my Ls430 with p0430 is exhaust leaks near the downstream o2 sensor. If exhaust leaks outside oxygen will be read by downstream 02 after cat. Just something else to look at. If you have heat shield around exhaust the clamps can cause cracks in pipes.

1st time I got the p0430 code my snap on scan tool shows suggestions for the cause and it said replace y pipe. I was really thrown till I investigated and found cracked pipe from heat shield clamp 2 inches downstream after cat o2. I welded crack and was fixed. I realize bmw vs Lexus but obd2 crosses all makes

Nope, an Isuzu Trooper. Got it Rust Checked for the first 12 or so years that I had it. Going to post it for sale over the weekend. Picked up a 2016 Equinox for the "good car" the 2010 Santa Fe will become the "old beater" and day to day car

It probably would not pass an emissions test, one of the catalytic converters has been shot for a while.

good day.

got about an inch of snow so i stared it down until it melted. walked dogs.

then listened to the Rolling Stones loud in garage while working on a 928. set fast throttle and idle, checked carb, new plug, oil, installed new impeller bearing and belts, and then reinstalled bucket.

then stared at it while drinking a Corona. salad and ravioli for dinner. like i said .......a good day.

Just a quiet day here. My durn back has been bothering me since my sister begged me to help her move a dresser down her steep Victorian stairs two weeks ago. I'm sitting on the couch waiting for it to get better and hoping it didn't cause a permanent pain. It did not hurt right away, only the next day, so I'm thinking I just strained it.

I'm watching "The Highwaymen" on Netflix, with Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson. They are two Texas Rangers chasing down Bonne and Clyde in 1934. Pretty good movie.
