I work at Mercedes Benz so if it's good enough for a f**k Mercedes it's good enough for a ford

calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'

Also if you take the thermostat out the engine will not warm up to correct operating tempreture

i'm a mechanic. i've seen what happens when people use chemi weld to 'buy time'

ends up blocking the wrong spot and cause cars to overheat, or when you get around to doin the head gasket it cost you more time and money because it's f*cked your hoses, water pump, radiator etc



I dont care what you are......... Dont be a kent to other members!

Your either still an apprentice, or your not long out of your time. Therefore your still green!

There are other ways to voice your opinion, without being offensive.........

Consider this a warning!

No, your s**t!

I didn't like what you said, it was down right rude. Its not what you said, it was how you said it! I dont give a s**t how long you have been around cars, you could have been Henry f**k ford in a previous life for all I care, the fact you are a mechanic does not excuse you from being an a***hole.

That warning was a verbal warning, but now you can have a official one!

thermostat wont fix head gasket... but also depends on how bad its gone what colour is the oil? is it still oil or is it iced coffee lmao . depending how bad its runnin is to how long itll last.. when it starts runnin rough and dosnt want to idle yer take it off the road but also keep in mind the more u run the more it can warp the head and slowly make other probs and hassels .. but yer pepper has worked for me :) cemiweld isnt that crash hot,if u havnt got or cant get when u need , i have a brand new head gasket and bolts sitting here doing nothing if u need them,

Hey i agree its your attitude WILDEB not everyone does have alot of money and if it helps them to keep their car going a little longer good on them, at 20 years of age you have a lot to learn yet.
and your remarks didnt help him at all.
