    <DIR>A lot of folks can't understand
    how we came to have
    an oil shortage here in our country
    Well, there's a very simple answer.
    Nobody bothered to check the oil.
    We just didn't know we were getting low.
    The reason for that is purely geographical.

    Now every dad worth his salt should know the fundamentals. You buy two sets of jack stands. One for your vehicles and one for juniors. It's tradition. :D

    Had a toyota corolla. Wanted to do an oil change myself. Bought oil and found out that I couldn't get to the filter no matter the tricks I tried. Brought the car to a mechanic that I trusted and he didn't know how to do it. Finally had to take it to a toyota mechanic where I was charged for oil since it wasn't their brand that I had bought. Was charged for labor, meaning their looking and deciding what tool they would need. Was charged for labor, meaning them actually using the tool that was needed to remove the filter. Was charged more money for them to do the work. Finally, was charged for several pieces that I never knew existed though I 'Had' to have them. Don't recall the exact amount I paid, though it was way over priced.

    I bet if I would have went out and bought a .45 and just put the car out of my misery, I would have gotten off cheaper. :D

    I never did unnerstand why it took half a day to do an oil change when I drank, but now I know! Ever since I quit drinkin' 2 things happened: I quit seeing the cops all the time and I get oil changes in 20 minutes. Amazing. :cool:
