Mechanical Diesels

Mechanical diesels are so easy to diagnose when they don't start. It's glow plugs or no fuel. It's even easier to diagnose when they don't have glow plugs.

YUP. Easy to tune up as well, if you got the right tools. Too bad EEPUH don't like 'em.

You HOPE that's what it is. If it isn't, you're in for expensive work.

No joke. A mute button would be priceless. A couple volume buttons too, one for volume of weight and one for volume of breast tissue.

Swap button would be cool too, when you're done doin the normal way hit swap and it automatically flips her over to....well, you know.
