what you did to your dub today....

Postby CDB on Fri May 28, 2010 8:11 am

got this idea from vortex and i know how much we all love our cars...especially in the rain!!!
we all know they need so much attention from us almost on a daily basis so just a thread to say what we did to our dubs if we did anything to them on a daily basis...

last night while sitting in traffic noticed that my temp had gone all the way up :evil: :evil:
so i pull over let it cool down abit and opened the rad reseviour and threw in some apple flavoured water which was all i had available in the car :oops:

so then tried to figure out wtf this fan dont wana come on...eventually had to cut a piece of my speaker wire from the 6x9's and bridge the fan switch out and using to matches to secure the wires in the switch :evil: :evil:

all this after i just changed the gearbox oil at work.. :roll: the way i feel now is if i fix or maintain one thing on my car another part decides to break just to humble me and make me realise that ill always be my cars bitch :mrgreen:

i let my temp run to about 3mm away from the redzone :evil:
by accident of course
took a corner and the battery harness came loose and knocked one of the temp sensor terminals off so the fan didnt switch on.
i know something mustv damaged cuz now she runs like old lady with 2 hip replacements wif cruches! :evil:

ALWAYS monitor your gauges while driving.
I made that mistake you did and blew the head gasket.
