    I just had a guy come in.....check engine light on, 6 codes!

    Evap circuit code. It came back but nothing to do with the complaint.

    Cyl 4,5 misfire. Didn't come back on but after the replacement of the plugs the engine smoothed out.

    3 different 02 sensor codes that meant nothing

    I charged him 100 for the plugs and didn't wait until it cooled off.

    Of course, if you had spent an extra 1000 for me to tow it to my shop I would have fixed it for free, cause, we like you!
    getting to Lexington was easy........getting back to Boston was the tricky part!

    Put my truck in for state inspection recently. My check engine light was on and the service writer offered to tell me what the issue was if I gave them $60 to "scan" it. The gleam in his eye faded quickly when I told him that it was the number 6 glow plug and that I had a $25 replacement sitting on my work bench at home. I told him that I would clear the code myself after I had replaced the plug, gave him $16 for the state inspection, and left.

    Can't really blame them. The local repair shops all seem to be doing well, but the dealerships appear to be hurting for business.

    Jeez.

    State auto inspections... I remember when they were invented. NOT ONE CAR could ever pass the headlight alignment "test". The $1.50 fee was automatically doubled to $3.00.

    It got so bad, New York repealed the inspection law.

    Virginia has an annual inspection on vehicles and trailers. Brakes, tires, exhaust, lights, front end, stuff like that. They usually don't pop me for much, but sometimes some little thing will get me. $16 bucks for cars and trucks and $12 for bikes.

    I remember seeing long lines in Florida many moons ago. They still have them?
    I'll find out next month but I'm sure Massivetwoshit is up to 35 American for inspection.
