How about an "Idiots Only" section for people like me, who go nuts over little things like an oil change as compared to a 5 speed conversion/convertible chop top project/etc?
LOL yesterday I saved myself $50 when I realised that all I need to do to "fix" my PS system was to just fill the bloody thing up! (It keeps running dry every 4 or so months, and I thought the mechanic did other stuff like pull apart & put together the PS rack).
I'd get stung for $50 coz they'd take their time putting the EB on a hoist so they can clean up the PS rack. So it was like $5 of PS fluid & $45 labour (for just a spit 'n' polish!!!)
^^^ Despite the simplicity, I guess these things are completely hit or miss, but handy to know all the same.
