Found a HUGE crack in the exhaust manifold. The cold air infiltration must have warped the exhaust valve. Anyone had any experience with 4 banger headers?

I saw a minor traffic accident beside me while on my way home today. The dude that caused it was such a dork that I couldn't let him think he was getting away with anything.

The knucklehead was stopped at a busy intersection traffic light. He must have had his Expedition SUV in neutral and let off the brake because it started to roll backwards. The guy behind him was ~15-20' away. As I noticed his Expedition rolling backwards ~10' I started to toot my horn. The guy behind him started to lay on his horn too.

Well, the idiot didn't attempt to stop his Expedition and it continued to roll backwards and slammed into the front of a full sized van.

The dork in the Expedition quickly jumped out of his SUV and started to immediately get in the face of the other driver and shouted; "why did you slam into me?" "this is all your fault".

I had my window rolled down and shouted out LOUDLY, "dude, you're a complete idiot! You are totally at fault, your POS SUV rolled backwards and we both tried to warn you by honking our horns" "You are an f&$*@$ dumb arse".

The bozo looked at me with amazement as his jaw dropped. The other guy said "thanks, I've got this handled"

I drove off. Some people.

Does anybody on here know a good honest place that installs radiators? one of the gals at work has an older miata with a blown out radiator. i normally would help out but i honestly don't have enough time in teh day. i have personally never been to a mechanic but once when i was 19 and needed machine work done so i dont have the slightest clue on where to go.

On that note, where was that alignment shop in lemon grove that everyone was talking about not to long ago? Need to bring in the wifes car (G8) for an alignment... i dont mind doing the jeep since everything is more or less right there, but i really hate crawling under her car.

For those peeps that love those Jeeps with the funny headlights, seems like those Jeeps get tired at night and fall over to go to sleep

Atleast it didn't roll over and fall a sleep. Looks like either an axle shaft or a ring gear

yeah, sorry Jimmy. I was on that "user-friendly" phone app and I guess it dropped to the wrong thread. Not to mention I'm about 4 beers in.

I knew there was trouble when I could turn the driveshaft a full turn with the wheels on the ground and the locker on.





Not sure what happened but it was making noise before I even got to the trail. Must have done something out at CC last trip.
