    One from this morning.
    Normally, I'd fix this with one of those temp terminals.(I hate using them but we do.)

    This one I said straight off the bat "no, order a new OEM harness".

    I'd have had to cut off 6"+ to find clean cable and then it be to short to connect.

    Fuck those terminals. Our fusions are horrible, no extra length to get the clamp on the battery terminal without pulling the shit out of it. Then the terminal opening at its widest is smaller than most battery terminals. I have had to cut a little notch in the terminal clap to get it on/off, after breaking the whole terminal stuff off the old battery.

    With the amount of corrosion on the end I seriously though it would have gone farther into the insulation than it did.

    no pics but a Muranos radiator kinda kicked my ass yesterday/today.


    the hose spring clamps were in almost impossible to reach locations, the AC lines failed the vacuum test after reinstall and the CVT Trans cooler line fittings leaked.


    1.6 hr job my ass. Hell, it's 45 min just to charge the AC.

    Holy fuck.. they drove this here and the complaint was the brake and abs lights were on.. and the right front tire was a concern


    at 97k miles this thing needs to be in a junk yards with the rest of them. I suggested that if they don't get it fixed they need to tow it home, not drive it

    95 Intrepid.

    broken trailing arm.



    all 4 brakes are metal on metal.. the right rear has rust on the rotor from the pad not contacting it.





    yea your only concern should be the tire

    You can't be mad. The rivets are pure genius. About as genius as putting mounting bolts for the rotors.
