dumb frog poster.

For some reason I'm blessed with a mother who understands stuff like this. She has no knowledge or interest in it, but if I explain something I'm doing to her car, my own or similar then she actually does get the idea of how things work

I know that feel bro.

>Doing preventative maintenance on shitbox
>"Anon is fixing his car again"
>"When are you going to get a decent car anon?"

I've been getting shit like that constantly for my car. It's one of the cheapest Cobalts listed on craigslist, yet people give me a hard time over the price. You COULD go get that other Cobalt for $500 less, BUT it has almost twice the miles and was obviously wrecked since the two doors are a different color and there's bondo running down the side

I hate selling cars but it's really nice when they finally go

>>14212939

Buddy just got one. Pretty fun car but imo gives me the same feel as my miata. Needs boost

>car jumped the time and that's why the chain was replaced
????
>>
>>14213376
She's saying the only reason the timing chain was replaced was because it fucked shit up, not because it's a maintenance that's done on literally every car
>>
>>14213386
But timing chains aren't routinely replaced as per the manual of my Mazda 3. Or they're replaced rarely enough that it was beyond the routine maintenance outlined in the manua
>>
>>14213386
when i hear cars jumped the time i dont immediately thing of timing chain
maybe op needs to polish up on his english
>>
>>14213415
Timing chain is supposed to be done at 300k miles on mine.
>>
>>14213426
That sounds reasonable. My manual only goes up to about 180,000km.
>>
>>14212660
That's because your mum isn't retarded.

Why do people just assume that chicks won't get this stuff? For what it's worth, most dudes don't know anything either, and judge a car by its stereo system or cup holder placement.
>>
>>14212042
moms don't know things about cars. You can just make shit up and they'll believe it
