By the way ,having spent my entire working life in the motor industry , your boasting of being "a chief senior mechanic " , what ever that is does not impress me one bit . I could beat you hands down with qualifications from many different franchises if needed but it is not my style .To say on another post that the replies were baloney and useless is out of order and disrespectful . I have met many mechanics who were good on theory and boasted about their certificates but could not fix a car if their life depended on it . I have also employed many mechanics who have no certificates to their name , they usually were the best in the business. Sorry for rant , but you really annoyed me .
Thankyou RS Logan. You summed up my thoughts exactly.
In my opinion CHIEFMECH has simply quoted a few service bullitens , abused members and advised going to a mechanic. I believe he/she knows very little and is simply being a smartass.
