is nothing funnier than life. A very good repeat customer of mine
once told me a story about the day he tuned up his own 1999 American made
automobile, which had a common V-type six (6) cylinder engine. That
day, all he planned to do was to change his oil, oil filter, his
serpentine belt, and change his spark plugs. He figured two (2)
hours maximum. He started at 10 am. No big deal right?
Long long ago, six and
eight cylinder engines used to be mounted so that you could easily access
the spark plugs from the side of the car or truck. There was also
plenty of room between the engine and frame of the car to easily access
these parts. In today's models, the engines have been rotated 90
degrees, where the spark plugs are easily accessed from the front of the
car, but they are not so accessible between the engine and the fire wall
of the car. Today, they also build the cars quite a bit smaller, for
reasons of efficiency. In short, the 10 pound engine just fits into
a very tight 10 pound opening, with very little room to spare.
Oil and Oil filter - no
problem! Serpentine Belt - No Problem! Front Spark plugs - again, no
problem! Rear spark plugs - problem. Let the explicitives
begin. Smashed knuckles, broken spark plug insulators, trips back to the
parts store, etc., etc., where the order of the day. Hello 4:30 pm!
Finally - Done!
Yo! Keith (Lehman)! Why
does it take you only a fraction of an hour to perform a tune-up (It took me
over 6 hours)? In other words, how can you afford to do a full tune up for
only X dollars. I said, with a big wide smile, "that's because I have
all the right tools (to get the job done)." I didn't have to say that
I've done this type of stuff a few times.
