Oh, and the sprockets are not keyed to the cams. You just have to line it up and tighten the the bolt without anything slipping out of place.

WTF is all that white? Exploder bukkake porn?

It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it was the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily, the government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. - George Washington

Yes. Someone filled it with block sealer, which clogged the radiator cap so it actually held all the combustiom pressure, even when cooled off.  The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the cap. And boom, bukkake all over the place. On my head, on my tools, on my radio; just a mess.

I have to mention that I recently worked on a Buick Enclave, and I think it is one of the dumbest crossover crap vehicles, ever. First of all, the fuel tank is about seven feet long, and yes, I had to drop it to replace an evap vent. Second, it has this long metal rail hanging under the body on the driver's side to protect the fuel tank from impacts. Okay, I guess you can't even drive over curbs with this thing now. Oh, and if you reach under the body around the B pillar and pull the plug hanging down, you will disconnect the fuel pump. Not hard to do. Oh, and the interior. Wow, plastic wood. So much. Such horrible. And guess what, the font on the instruments is impossible for old people to read. It is tiny tiny. What the hell is this vehicle for?

The 3rd row seats three real-sized people.


I'm not a fan of these cars, but they're big and sold well because no one could figure out how to make a crossover that seats 7-8 real adults.

The trick was to make it really big.

I don't have $515 for a FSM.  Will a Hayne's work.


I know this was a post from a couple of weeks ago, but thought I'd add this: Some dealerships, depends on how well you now your service advisor/shop manager/parts manager, will copy pages out of the factory shop manual for customers.
