Questionable repair technique .must try .

Post by gnarnold » Sun May 27, 2018 9:50 pm

Hello everybody .as most of you know that each tercel is its own entity .and i think I have broke the language barrier .its was when I was saying distasteful things at her. She decided to give me some flatspots during acceleration.as I pulled into the service station to pop the hood and tickle her greasy nuts .some of the gummy bears i
Just purchased spilled and fell into the oil filler hole..
As there was nothing I could do I proceeded to massage that machine and closed no if and got underway.
Expecting to hear the normal ticks pops and squeaks .there was silence just the smooth purr of the engine .

Having not done really anything special to her during the examination. I have come to the conclusion that all she wanted all these years was some gummi bears .I throw a bag in with every oil change . go figure .

Warning! tbis situation is according to the Want a and needs of my particular tercel.your may not want candy .adjust procedure to your situation .
I used to laugh at the man with a pinto :lol: , until I became a humble servicer of a tercel :|

HAW!
But I am keeping this from my Goldie - I do not want her to develop a sweet tooth at nearly 35!
