    Took a very skilled buddy and I over 100 man-hours to swap out a blown 3.3 V6 in a Nissan Frontier 4x4. In-family job; did it mostly for free labor and the parts cost was around 3 grand total. I wouldn't touch another swap like that if you paid me the $100+ and hour that any shop would charge..

    I admit I DID consider rebuilding the straight 6 in my 2000 Cherokee..before the transmission started acting funny, the heater core went out, and a strange noise started emanating from the right front wheel...

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Time is too valuable and a limited commodity. I have too many projects that are competing for it.

    Todays project. Well, it was yesterdays, but due to Amazon not getting the new pump ($130 for Bosch, vice $240 at the local guys store brand) not getting the new one here til tomorrow. Of course, the 2015 Jeep acted up two days back and is in the shop. Two other vehicles here, both stick, so I'm driving the wife around. :)

    Missus had her 2018 Rav4 back to the dealership twice to track down a battery drain that was leaving it dead if it sat more than 24-36 hours. Second time they really went after the problem with all sorts of current detecting stuff hooked up. Turned out the heater in the driver's seat was coming on randomly, even when vehicle was parked and shut down.

    Not fixed yet...just disconnected the seat heater harness...
