Things you don't wanna hear from the mechanic

:whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

it's time to buy a coffin

you should've bought a Toyota

should've bought a Cummins

your truck is now just a heavy paper weight

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

How about "Its hard to say what the problem is... Could be this/that" type of thing. That usually signals its going to get expensive and might not even be fixed right.

"Ummm...have you talked to the dealer about this?"

"I'm thinking your 5" straight piped exhaust has caused your whipers to stop working"

"I see you have a NX kit. That there is your problem. Your head gaskets just couldn't hold the pressure."

"What does 'Turbo Diesel' mean exactly? Is this all aftermarket?"

"You mean to tell me you put DIESEL in the gas tank? Like at a truck stop?"

"I'm thinking the problem is somewhere between the rear of the front bumper and the front of the fire wall. We'll call you when we are done."

"Sorry, but your truck is too heavy for our lift."

(The dealer) "Sorry, but we are going to void your warranty b/c of the following; Twin turbo install on a single turboed truck, 300 hp shot of nitrous, 530 hybrid injectors, twin HPOPs, larger than normal IC, Wierd looking Intake, 5" turbo back exhaust with zero emissions equipment, and 7" stacks, the 14 gauges you added to the dash area, ohh, and the chip that you installed. It seams that the tech tried to pull it into the bay and you truck has so much torque that it ripped a "#11" shaped hole in the concrete floor."

"Umm, this think isn't stock is it?"

"Well, we would work on it but your truck is too long to fit in the bay."

"Do you got your check book with you? And yes we do take credit."
and this one is from a dealer "You know what how about you take a look at our other vehicles while we keep looking for the problem "
