Dump it all and be yourself. At least then you’ll be who you really are.
Any car newer than 1996 has a OBD-II port, when a warning light comes on it will trip a code or codes that identify the system that is not operating properly. Any auto parts store will usually run a free check. Knowing the error codes is only the first step in repairing the car. Just changing parts because a code told you to is just asking for trouble. Sure replacing the part may stop the light from coming on, if you properly cleared the code after replacing the part. But, if that wasn’t the real problem the light will eventually come back with possibility an even bigger repair bill. Get the Code, so you kinda know what going on and then find a reputable repair shop to ensure the car is repaired correctly. You can even buy a code reader for less than $100, which you can then check the auto’s system yourself. Just make sure the reader you buy covers your car, a reader can cover more than one make and cover a number of model years. you may be surprised that it will show many codes that have tripped, but haven’t tripped a warning light. Maybe someone repaired the problem but didn’t clear the code/s. A check will only take 10-20 minutes and can be done weekly or monthly. One catch of a code may even pay for price of the code reader. Run a base check, then clear all codes, and then drive the auto at highway speeds for 15 to 30 minutes and run another check. If codes are tripped you can be reasonably certain that you at least have some need of maintenance.
If we had simply changed in 1975, no one under the age of 50 would have even known anything but Metric. The main reason we didn’t change is my generation just did ’t want to be bothered learning a new system. Changing would most certainly have improved the economy, someone will always make money off of any change in society.
Satchel’s and Bucky’s conversations often meander around and through the valley of misunderstanding.
In kid time that was near an eternity.
First step in problem solving is: “Can I blame someone else?” No problem.
I occasionally caught, that’s why it was occasionally.
