I’ve become so disgusted with dealership life I started applying to anything that will expand my expertise. Fixing cars under warranty because people can’t drive has taken its toll on my creative side, gotta get outa this shit-hole industry....

I know how you fell man I work at a John Deere dealership for construction equipment and people really fuck shit up and warranty problems always suck we have one customer that just destroyed a 13.5l engine $62,000 mistake not covered by warranty

[]Tom Armstrong

Oh holy moly. That’s a heart attack amount of money

[]Bryan Holmberg

Dude your telling me my Ram Rebel and lift,rims, and tires cost me $62k ish that’s a whole truck looks like we made budget tho 👍🏻

[]Sebastian Nounou

Best of luck bro. It’s a tough ride.

[]Tom Armstrong

Thanks dude. I don’t wanna die next to my toolbox with no savings....not that the damn executives would care. They’re just looking for a bunch of young robots to pay minimum wage.

[]Sebastian Nounou

Not to mention how ruthless the tool truck dudes can be. Oh, you dead? Pay me 😑

California has its share of undervalued markets that just need a change of scenery, if ya know what I mean 😉.

There’s a bunch of low market Cali stuff that the rest of the country pays top dollar for.

[]Tom Armstrong

Yeah I only get specific stuff from tool trucks, maybe 1-2 tools per year

With all of the money in the system from smog, licensing, and registration fees you would think the state would be better off.

At the end of the day car companies care more about a customer than its employees. That’s fine for most people and I get it, but when there are only 2 L1 certified techs in SD.....you would think SUBARU would take care of said techs

[]Sebastian Nounou

Absolutely. The customer brings the money.

[]Robert Sixto

I feel you man, had to get out myself, still looking for the next thing.

I need some #advice So heres my problem, in January '18 I bought a brand new '17 #focusst and then like 3-4 months later ford said they're not making or selling cars anymore in the U.S. except for the mustang. I didn't really think too much about it until the other day when I was at the ford dealership ordering some mountune aftermarket parts. I started talking to the parts guy about ford cancelling those five cars and what

I'm sure that there will be other manufacturers making OEM quality parts that will still be available on sites like www.rockauto.com
I know I've gotten some Motocraft parts off of rock auto before but I have no idea what Ford's decision will do for the non-dealer parts supplies

[]John O'Dell

I'm sure rock auto will have all the standard focus stuff but I question whether or not it'll have the ST specific parts that I might need. I just don't know if ST has a big enough following to make it worth while for them.

I wanted to make this a diy guide, but I unfortunately didn’t take a single photo of the installation process, so I guess I’m going to make it a review instead! So let’s get down to the root of the problem I ran into, the e46 uses an external crankcase ventilation system (CCV), which is really nice when a hose breaks and you need to get in there to replace it, however the CCV on the e46 never

Plastic valve cover? For real? And it couldn't even hold up to crankcase vacuum...pitiful. Great mod work, but it shouldn't be that hard.

[]Wilson Oberholzer

BMW likes to use a lot of "cheap" plastic bits that break easily, like the CCV system mentioned here. I've redone mine 3 times in the past 6 months and eventually just opted to delete the whole damn thing

[]Gregory Garoppolo

No powder coating? ;-p That is a fantastic upgrade and quite the silly design. Reminds me of all of the silly places VW used plastic in the 1990s, like for thermostat housing on VR6 motors, which warped as soon as it was removed, every time the thermostat needed replacing. The manufacturers always claim the plastic is for reasons like keeping temperatures down, but I think that's just a rationalization for a cost savings measure.

Take Mercedes for example, built like no other, until the late 1990s when MB finally decided that profits should be a constant thing, not an intermittent one. They then slapped plastic intakes onto their V6 engines, which are good engines, up until the plastic intake fails, a piece breaks off, and it travels through your engine. All of this started happening about a decade after the cars were new, so no warranty, and no MB assistance, just one very expensive intake manifold that can either be replaced or your car is dead. Audi's had self-dissolving thermostat housings made of plastic in their 2.7T engines too, so they're not exempt either.

There's other options for keeping temperatures cool too, wraps coatings, phenolic spacers, etc., the plastic for efficiency nonsense seems like its just a line these companies used to get us to suck up having inferior quality parts.

[]Wilson Oberholzer

I just recently did the CCV delete/Catch Can install on my M54 525i (with a PCV valve added to help even things out). I had no idea that the plastic valve covers could warp, I'm going to have to keep my eye on that.

The blow off valve in question, is this dual port TurboSmart unit pictured below. I've had it installed on my Mazdaspeed 6 for the last couple of years and probably about 20,000 miles. On this car, some people have reported the OE valve leaking when pushing beyond factory boost levels, making an upgrade necessary. While I never pushed boost much with the OE valve in place, I do now see levels that peak at 18-20psi and the TurboSmart
