    So, my truck has been running a little like shit here lately, so today has been my designated repair vehicle day. So far, I've changed my oil and my air filter (which was diiiirrrttty), and I'm about to change out my spark plugs/wires and clean the living bee-jeeezzzuus out of my MAF, see if that fixes my problem. Any other weekend warriors here?

    :yesway:

    I've spent quite a few Saturdays and Sundays laying on my back underneath a car in my driveway. Feels good, especially when you get everything buttoned up.

    I used to do the car stuff myself, now I'd rather just pay someone else to do it. :lol:

    But if it makes you feel like "all that is man," then have at it!

    False. :flex:

    I was raised that anything that can be done with your own two hands, should be done.

    I'm going to a spa resort! After that, a wine and cheese mixer/book signing!

    Maybe after that, I'll make my own coffee ice cream!

    ha i spent 700 dollars on strutts, ball joints, breaks, tie rod ends and fluids. spent 1 and a half days working on this saturn, replaced everything all the way around that was running gear, then the head gasket blew 1 month later. it totally sucked. but i traded it in to the local toyota dealer for 3000 towards a 2010 corolla s with a manual tranny. ive never been happier.

    but yes i do love a good weekend full of car repairs every once and a while, but some times it kicks you in the nuts.

    Change the oil filter too dude. Fuel filter if you think it needs it. Check your brakes too.

    I think you're supposed to flex first.

    Besides, I much too busy lifting weights while cage fighting and drinking beer so that I can impress the women-folk. My truck needs to be fixed by the time I'm finished so that I can drive them back to my place where we will listen to "The Very Best of Ram Jam" and have orgies on a bear skin rug. At the moment of climax I will fire two .357 magnums into the air whilst yelling "Yee-haw." :shred::usa::shred: :metal::hbang::metal:

    But yeah, have fun tinkering on your car. :stitch:

    Lifting weights is for pussies. If you don't get your exercise killing things or chopping wood, you're doing it wrong.

    I'm so man I put the axe face up and hit it with the wood.

    I kill animals with my bear hands.

    - Shoot bear
    - Cut off hands
    - Use to kill other animals

    As much as I love beer, it is consumed for pleasure and for "maximum manliness", everything should be done with the intention of survival only.
