    So my hillbillie neighbor's Furd Ranger craps out on him at the bottem of the hill. I can hear him trying too start it. It has pleanty of batt power too keep turning it over, so what does he do ?? Get's someone too give him a jump. I'm been watching him try too figure out why it won't start, LOL. I would go down and offer too help, but this is one of those I know more about everything then you people, so it's way more fun watching.

    Yeah, Ive seen plenty of situations like that. When I worked at Trak Auto, a customer came in and said his car wouldnt start. The starter worked, but it wouldnt fire. I came out and saw that his main fuse was blown. I said nothing would work until that fuse was replaced. It was a special size we didnt have, so he hould have to go to the dealer in the morning and get it. When I closed up the store and walked out to my car, he was still there, but now with a buddy's conversion van and a set of jumper cables. I told him it wouldnt work, the fuse needs replacement, and your battery is fine. He said "dont worry, is has a VORTEC engine."

    I ended up jumping it with a paperclip and told him to go home.

    Roadside assistance..

    I came upon a lady in a stalled Ford Falcon years ago on the side of the road--another lady had pulled over to assist her--I thought I'd be a good samaritin and see if I could help..

    I get out of my car,and the other lady "helper" is dousing all the spark plug wires,distributor cap and coil with STARTING FLUID!! :eek1: :eek1: --I said WHAT are you doing???--she replied "I'm going to jump start her car!!"...I said "I dont think its a good idea to be making any sparks with those jumper cables Ma'am!",and I warned the owner not to crank the engine for at least 10 minites either!..the other lady became very indignant,and says "Young man!!--I went to a course at night school at the vocational school on how to start a stalled car!--don't tell ME I don't know what I'm doing! :mad: ".....So I said,"OK- :surepal: -just wait until I'm at least 200 ft away from here before you crank it"--the owner of the car's eyes were like :eek1: --"IS MY Car going to blow up???"....

    In my best Bugs Bunny voice I said "Meah,could BE!"..ad I hurried back to my car!..as I drove away,I saw the "expert" reach in and turn the key--and flames shot out from under the hood with a big WHOOOF!-(the ditz had sprayed even MORE ether as I was leaving! :haha: :haha: :bow: :bow: --I drove away and I dont think I've laughed that hard ever since that day! :haha: :haha: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    hey diesel you got the best stories. I always enjoy reading your posts.
    The other day I watched some people try and change a tire infront of my dorm. I offered to help when I noticed they couldnt get the lugnuts off(turnin them the wrong way) and they had the jack in the middle of the car and tried to jack up the whole passenger side. They turned me down obviously. I took them about an hour to change one tire. Stupid frat boys.

    Today at work I took a call for a tow job at the rest area a few miles from our town. Story goes like this...

    Caller: Hi, I need a tow from the west bound rest area on I-94.

    Me: Ok, sir, what kind of car are you driving?

    Caller: A Toyota Camry... I think the starter is blown.

    Me: Oooh.. and I suppose it's an automatic??

    Caller: No, it's a 5-speed, why?

    Me: Nevermind, we'll be there in 15 minutes.


    Apparently the moron had never push started a stick, so I send out my tow driver, and before he got to the scene, the guy must have had someone walk by and ask what was wrong, who then taught him the proper way to start a manual vehicle when one's starter isn't working...

    We laughed hard on that one for a good 15 minutes.

    Tow rope, second pick up, pulled it back up the hill. It's sitting in front of his house.
