Stop eating Lynnie, :D :D  you can give me some chocolate chip banana bread. :D   :D or only some chocolate, because I don't know what that thing is and I don't know if I like it. :D :D

Bring it over to me Lynnie. I just replaced the pads, shoes, discs and pipes on my car about 6 months ago -all of them. Total cost: less than £40.

:D

It's great knowing how to do stuff!

I've just got home from a rescue mission. A (male) friend had run out of petrol so it was SuperCerina to the rescue. :dance:

Only he hadn't. Run out of petrol, I mean. And I ended up towing him all the way home.   :mrgreen:

The trouble is my car is hideously underpowered, and I never thought I would get so excited to reach 40mph.   :party:







Downhill.   :roll:








With a following wind.   :dontknow:

What the hell, let me throw mine in.

I recently replaced the heater core [with attendant cleanup of the resulting coolant flood] in my Olds Achieva.  Oh, and lost Overdrive in the transaxle in the bargain.

How?

I discovered that having the console's PRNDL [shift range] indicator disconnected, somehow inhibits the computer from commanding the gearbox to shift into Overdrive.  I'd get First, Second, and Third, and that was it.  Reconnecting the indicator solved the problem.  Now, if I can only get the lost fuel mileage back...

* * * * * * * * * *

Lynne, if you didn't hit anyone/anything when your brakes failed, I'd say that you were fortunate.

As for your Trooper, is there any way that you can possibly purchase a sound, used head from a recycler [a.k.a. junkyard]?  If so, I'd recommend having a "head job" done to it [new valves, springs, guides, seals, engine-mating surface trued, etc.], and you might even come out ahead, money-wise, over a brand-new unit.

And while you're at it...*PLEASE* replace the timing belt, sprocket(s) [if plastic], and the belt guides/snubbers.

Ok Napper.

Cost of flight: $1490
Cost of shipping car x2 $4000
Cost of Primark shopping spree: $100
Cost of taking Napper out for a curry and a beer: $100
Cost of years supply of Irn Bru to be shipped back to Seattle :$350


Having Napper charge you nothing for your brakes:  Priceless.

Timing belts have been changed. Everything on it has pretty much been replaced and recently.

The head will be used/low milage. About $800. I'm still catching up on bills from Ron being unemployed. I'm about $300 away from having it done. Just a slow process money wise.

Forgot to add. Ron now works for an auto supplies company so he can get auto parts for almost 50% less than if he bought them at the store. He's going to replace the pads himself this weekend.

[Disc-brake] pads are easy.  [Drum-brake] shoes can be a PITA, especially the return springs [I've had them fly off and into my face, *ouch*.]

Glad you have your brakes fixed, Lynne. :mrgreen:

The rotors may need replaced. I cannot believe I didn't notice how shitty they were. I was so fortunate to have made it home!! I was shocked when I saw the pads.
