While I truly love tearing down an engine. Coming home and having my vehicle refuse to start the day after I get home is frustrating...

Now toss on the fact my sister decided to tear down a wall then leave for the week so I have to hang drywall, mud and paint half the house. And that I get to fix peoples mistakes at work because apparently no one else can work a plasma cutter or an arc rig.

Kinda cut that rant short... I'm tired, hungry and needed a break after the "vacation" I just had...

Olds alero.

Plasma cutters and arc rigs arnt difficult to use once you get a few hours on them but for some reason guys making a lot more money than me can't cut a straight line in the side of a ship.

It could be worse you could be working on a volkswagon, or one of the other countless more pain in the ass cars our there.

I feel ya on this one, every time I turn around it seems like one of my cars is needing something. I've put a new rear end, tps sensor, cv shaft, and going on my 3rd u joint for the old chevy just in the past 3 months. Not to mention what I need for the rx7 and the scion.

I don't mind turning wrenches. As long as it isn't my daily driver.

I usually don't either but spreading my attention amongst my three vehicles and friends vehicles in my precious spare time tends to ware on me.

Know the feeling. Just got back from Florida picking up a car my mom sold us cheap. Started up and ran fine all the way back and yesterday I go to start it and it acts odd. I think it's protesting the cold.
