:crying:

So i havnt been on in a few days. Saturday morning the engine on my beloved Turbo Pt cruiser went pop like a zit.

Blew the head in 3 places, which cracked the block and threw a piston through the oil pan. all because of i have no idea why and it never overheated.

The car only has 78k on it so its not worth junking.

Im broke.......as i recently got engaged and threw all my $$ at a ring.

Thus......i had to sell every glock i own except for my 32 to finance a new engine :crying:

god hates me. its official. :crying:

pics of me selling the glocks? i thought posting things that caused people to be extremely depressed was against the rules.

And of the engine..........no. Car went straight to the dealer and is having a new crate engine put in. Should be done thursday.

Im thinking the harmonic balance pulley froze up. Causing the moving car to throw a piston an crack the head.

All i know was i was doing a good clip. Then heard a huge groan, BANG BANG BANG and then there was a HUGE length of oil in my wake, smoke everywhere and a hissing dead car.

Only 78k? I wouldn't dream of owning a blown Crystler product, but you'd think they could make it to 100k without blowing up completely. Are they putting in the same type of engine that died?

Not same model year. I bought one from a 06 which has much better life time. some go past 295k

Its basically a neon built with a better body. So the engine it had has all the neon quirks, bad seals/gaskets, horrible fuel economy. mounts that wear out after 50 k etc.

Good part though, the old 2.4 usually snapped a timing belt, blew a head gasket or lost the waterpump right around 100k.

the new one..lasts around 140 k before it starts needing work. So i dodged a $1,400 bullet there. just have to find a way to justify the other $3k now.

Sucks about your car, but why in the world did you have 14 Glocks? They're cool pistols and all, and if the money's not an issue, knock yourself out. Money's obviously an issue though.

when i aqquired them it was not. When i ran my own PC repair shop, i also was pulling 27k a year, lived with my brother free of rent and had no bills. so buying a glock a month was easy :-p

but a $4,600 bill out of the blue hit me pretty hard. especially after dropping a few K on a ring friday.

ya know last year i would have thought the same.

Except i paid $0 for this car. it was a gift from a friend who got a very large chunk of cash after his grandfather passed away.

The body, suspension, exhaust ...everything is MINT. its the dream edition 5spd turbo. i thought i would hate it.

Until i drove it for a week and loved it.

They arnt for everyones tastes but....i wanna keep it. i mean even with a blown engine its KBB value is worth more than what im paying for the engine, almost 7k total with the new engine so.........it hurts but i can live with it haha

If you're only in it the price of the new engine I can see why you would keep it. Hope the engine swap goes smoothly and they don't find anything else wrong with it.

either love em or hate em . i got a o1 pt bought in 03 now its got 166 ,000 miles , only work done is having the timing belt replaced every 60,000 but i do that myself . maybe i got lucky who knows but its been damn good car to me .

only thing i do hate is needs another gear , it tacs high when driving 60 .

take it you have the auto?

Mine is ..okay in high gear but....not great. not good for a standard anyway.

I love mine. I used to make fun of them constantly until i drove it around, i like how it drives, how it corners, love the retro interior!.

And its one of the most customizable cars in the world. if you dont like it, change it. simple haha great part of it.

gas mileage could be better. with the old i was pushing to get 23mpg. should get 28-30 with the new.

Timing belts on them do suck however on the 01-04 series.

Those of us who know how to do them are blessed because at $1,400 a pop parts+labor they would lose all value after 60kish.

They hold up really well if they are taken care of. People who usually end up replacing a lot let them go to **** real quick.

Mine is maintained meticulously.....Before the engine randomly exploded she hadnt burped in 8 months before that i put in a turn signal bulb :-D

Well it obviously wasn't so well maintained after all,those engines are notorious for the oil sludging up.

You have to keep them on 3k oil changes or switch to a full synthetic oil like Mobil-1.

And if you were any kind of mechanic you would know that,

and an oil and filter tech doesn't count as being a mechanic

Is this a Glock forum? No one has asked yet, what were the 13 you sold. All I know is you kept your 32.

Good luck with your PT. Personally I'd never own a turbocharged Chrysler anything.

Edit: I would have taken the ring back and sold it. Women are alot easier to replace than good guns.

Had a Dodge Intrepid and the engine went at 75K. If you sold 13 Glocks I would maybe stay away from putting any money into a car that is only going to let you down again. The engine on a 10 year old Toyota will take you farther than the POS product Chrysler/Dodge/whatever conglomerate put out.

09-04-2012, 05:01
No offense, but you clearly need some savings instead of 13 Glocks. Yeah, I own some guns too but I made sure I had some emergency money in the bank first.

Also, if I were you I don't think I'd be bragging about making $27k, driving a PT, freeloading off of my brother and blowing every dollar on toys.

Buying guns is fine. But 13 of the same flavor is odd, unless you are a hardcore prepper.

The ring thing is silly, in my opinion. But it is your money, and her taste, so who am I to judge. My wife would rather have the 13 Glocks :)

as soon as you get the new motor swapped i'd sell it for whatever you can get for it and then spend 3-4k on a nice older honda civic or something.

my experience with dodge/chrysler products is that they're usually rock solid, right up until something breaks and then it starts to rapidly snowball into bigger and bigger issues rather quickly. sometimes the first breakage can take 10 months or 10 years, but when it happens it's a death knell.

Agree!! I worked on my friend's car and its chrysler. It had an unique battery and many parts that I couldn't just buy from anywhere. I will never buy dodge/chrysler car.

I feel for you man - I've got a Silverado that is headed the same way due to a cracked cylinder head but I caught the problem in time to save (most of) the engine. I thought it was burning oil but I think it was actually sludging up in the pan away from the dipstick.

However, I will say the Silverado made 185,000 miles before this happened and apart from two broken knobs on the radio (thanks to my son) and a water pump it has had nothing other than regular maintenance done to it (I am a maintenance fiend).

I bought a used Civic this weekend but hung onto the truck (wasn't going to get anything much for it even before they found out about the engine). It can still be driven some (hauling stuff from the hardware store, etc) but I was headed toward being stuck on the highway pretty soon. My wife drives an Accord so we needed something that could haul a little cargo.

In your situation I guess I'd fix the car but I would look toward replacement when it is economically viable. As a friend of mine was told, If you look up Dodge in the dictionary, it says "Avoid." That should tell you all you need to know. :tongueout:

And don't buy so many Glocks - they all look the same anyway! :tongueout::rofl:

.....hard to believe the crappy quality some folk accept from their vehicles

After 187,000 I've had to replace both door lock assemblies and the steering rack bushings on my 03 Tacoma.

I dunno. I think it was Drew that owned multiple multiples of several Glocks. I think. Thta was a few years ago.



As far as a crate motor: $5K for a crate motor for a PT Cruiser?? This isn't a 60's musclecar engine. Wow.

Well, under the umbrella anyway, a plumber friend has three dodge trucks, one with nearly 300K on the clock. He or his guys drive all around Dallas everyday - usually with two or three passengers and half a ton or so of tools and gear. I know a number of farmers and ranchers who swear-by Dodge trucks too, especially the three-quarter ton rigs.

Dang! A Jasper (admittedly a rebuild) for my Silverado is $4K installed, and the mechanic that priced that isn't exactly known for his low prices (but his quality is first rate).

I'd look for a junkyard engine from a totaled one, but then you need to go through it and, when your car is dead that takes time you don't have.

problem #1 You bought a PT Cruiser

problem #2 you put a turbo on it.

Just messing with ya bro, sorry to hear about the issues. My car just broke a timing belt so I kinda know your pain albeit mine is alot less expensive pain.

I had a co-worker that was a die hard PT Cruiser fan. He and his wife both owned one and they were a part of a club that put on cruise nights and displayed themes in the trunk when they all parked. Good clean fun. Just not on the top 10 of the most reliable cars.

With 2012 coming, guns would be the last thing I would have sold though. Use a credit card, get a part time time 2nd job via bicycle or bus, or pawn the diamonds. By 2012 I mean dealing with the those who think the sky is falling.

OP

1. Don't let the collective get you down.

2. About the car. Get it fixed and evaluate where you are via a vis the car over the next month or two. If you believe the car and new motor is solid keep it. If not sell it. And do not second guess yourself.

3. A thought or two about the new engine.
* Run the crap out of the AC, assuming you have AC, for the next few weeks. Make sure it works perfectly. If not make the dealer fix it. Frankly, eyeball the engine bay and under the car 3/4x per day for the next several weeks. Lots of things go wrong just after engine swaps.

4. Use this as a learning experience. ASAP grow a savings account with at least $10K. That is a minimum acceptable level of cash for someone your age. Maybe, get a second job and save all of that money. As others have said in various ways it's silly to have 13 or so Glocks but not enough cash to deal with a blown motor.

Best of luck and do not become discouraged. Learn form this and move on.

ETA - Bump that minimum cash amount to $15K

Maybe worth 13 Glock hi-cap mags, but only during the Klinton gun ban in a blue state.

Yeah, get something economical and reliable enough to enable you to build up a savings account so you won't have to sell stuff or go into debt when you have a predictable emergency such as a Dodge failure.

Don't be discusting.

actually turns out it was human error. and it did have a reason to explode. Just spoke to dealer after they pulled the blown motor

PT radiator needs HOAT antifreeze. Anything else will not work.

Fiance took it to VIP for a flush last month. They put in generic VIP coolant. at 70% . dealer says they ere probably trying to get the same ratings as HOAT.failed to cool, which blew the thermostat, thus damaging the temp sensor under it. So it did overheat, even though the guage said normal.

Not PT's fault. VIP's fault for failing to heed to the "WARNING USE SPECIAL COOLANT" sign on the overflow.

Because i signed a stupid lease that states if i work on cars i will only do work that does not involve the possibility of spilling fluids. Coolant has a very very nasty effect on asphalt driveways lol

So other than brakes, i have any fluid related jobs done for me. mainly oil changes and coolant, and fuel pumps.

Fiance took it to VIP for a flush last month..... Not PT's fault. VIP's fault

Already blaming your fiance? I see doom ahead.
Would it have different if you took it to VIP, or even flushed it yourself?

Some dealer must have taken you for a ride, how much did you get for the glocks? $250 ea.?

$300 ea. to my buddy who owns more guns than anyone i know, myself included. Alot of them were gen 2 and 70% finish so. i felt alright. Hopefully ill get em back before 2013 haha

Not blaming her at all. not one bit. she told them to use HOAT. they didnt.

If i had done it myself. i would have used HOAT and it wouldnt have blown. They dont carry hoat and instead of saying "we dont carry hoat" they just used the green crap.

Hoat is red or purple.

actually turns out it was human error. and it did have a reason to explode. Just spoke to dealer after they pulled the blown motor

PT radiator needs HOAT antifreeze. Anything else will not work.

Fiance took it to VIP for a flush last month. They put in generic VIP coolant. at 70% . dealer says they ere probably trying to get the same ratings as HOAT.failed to cool, which blew the thermostat, thus damaging the temp sensor under it. So it did overheat, even though the guage said normal.

Not PT's fault. VIP's fault for failing to heed to the "WARNING USE SPECIAL COOLANT" sign on the overflow.

Sooooo now i need to call VIP and make them give me my replacement cost back :-) may take months but ill get it


What is VIP? Is that the name of the shop? I hate most quickie-lubes because they don't pay attention. My truck has Dex-cool in it but it has a green UV dye added. If I took it to a quickie-lube and they added coolant, I'll bet they would add the green stuff.

What does HOAT stand for? I know most cars now use a proprietary coolant so I don't even keep much around (not that I work on any cars other than my own anyway). I keep two gallon jugs of distilled water to use in a pinch.

Sounds like a mess.

When you get back "right" a little advice - don't buy all the Glocks back. Save your money. Buy your favorites but you don't need 13 of any gun.

VIP is the equivalent of Pep Boys haha Big chain auto repair tire lube shocks struts etc.

HOAT coolants typically mix an OAT with a traditional inhibitor, such as silicates or phosphates. Better corrosion resistance. Higher op temp, cooler thrust. And a lot of cars waterpumps will clog with normal coolant because there is too much silicates. which is why they can only use HOAT :-)

Basically the same thing as throwing leaded gas into an unleaded only car. Bad things result

3 G22's, 2 G21's *standard and SF*, 2 19's , 4 G 17's *1 gen 1, 2 gen 2 and one gen3*, G20 SF, G 36 :-)

Odd but given the same choice of one gun to keep I would have kept the 32 myself. Possibly one of the 19's if one were a 2nd generation gun in good shape.

Good luck with your PT. Personally I say keep it if you like it so much, it brings you pleasure, and you are willing to live with the costs. Of course the same could be said of any woman also. :whistling:

Not same model year. I bought one from a 06 which has much better life time. some go past 295k

Its basically a neon built with a better body. So the engine it had has all the neon quirks, bad seals/gaskets, horrible fuel economy. mounts that wear out after 50 k etc.

Good part though, the old 2.4 usually snapped a timing belt, blew a head gasket or lost the waterpump right around 100k.

the new one..lasts around 140 k before it starts needing work. So i dodged a $1,400 bullet there. just have to find a way to justify the other $3k now.

You said it blew for no apparent reason. Think it could have been the timing belt breaking? If it is an interference engine, when the timing belt breaks the valves and pistons slam together. On some cars the timing belt is supposed to be changed at 60K. Anyway, good thing about guns, they are easy to sell and easy to replace (when your money is right again). Well, if you are getting married the money won't ever be right again, ha.

I use nothing other than LUCAS products and i just came inside from working on the head gasket of my sisters Ram :-) did you know that even though the hood stickers say to time it at 1.758 it should be timed at 1.600? just a little info :-)

First, to the OP, I'm sorry to hear about your problems! Document everything elaborately, and go right after the idiots that damaged your car! Good luck! :wavey:

I like my PT Cruiser too! :thumbsup:

When we decided to buy another car in 2006, my wife, Judy, asked me to drive a PT Cruiser, so I did. I liked it! But it was a little poky... "Here, drive this turbo!", suggested the salesman... Yes, that was much better!

The car had low miles and a 50,000-mile transferable warranty, so after some haggling, we bought the car the following day. I have to say that overall, I like it better than anything I've owned to date!

For me, at least, it just does everything well, in particular the seating! I've had three major back surgeries, and I live with chronic-acute pain as a fact of life, and this car just sits well for me, which is something that trumps a great many other considerations. It's also an extremely handy vehicle!

I was open to the retro styling, having long admired the circa 1930's and 40's music, automobile, and clothing styles, and over the years, I've become very fond of it. I smile when I spot this car in a parking lot... I just do... (The only other cars I routinely encounter that have that effect on me are the older Mini Coopers; I think the new ones are ugly). My wife also enjoys driving this car, and it's her vehicle of choice for shopping trips!

Let me say that all of my adult life, I've never given a rat's ass about what other people think is cool, uncool, or otherwise. I buy what I like and do what I feel like doing. Everything we own, including our home, is paid for. At 56, I'm semi-retired and not interested in buying a new car unless I have to; nor will I accept a monthly car payment. :shakehead:

Living with the car has been easy. Winter start-ups and driving (we're in Wisconsin) have been a non issue. The Continental Extreme Contact tires I put on it in 2010 are vastly superior to the OEM Good Year tires it came with...

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Continental&tireModel=ExtremeContact+DWS

Mechanically, it's had a few nickel-dime issues and one very expensive ($1,500.00) front suspension repair, that was not under warranty, so while not glowing, it hasn't been too awful either. Its under-sized battery did require replacement a few years back, and replacing front-end signal, fog and headlight bulbs is a major PIA!

Admittedly, the car is not driven hard, and I keep it like-new.

It recently required some body work, and when I asked the shop's manager about hanging onto it long-term, he said the car was in great condition, and if I "got a good one", it would be worth hanging onto.

My routine service garage owner tells me the same thing, 'If you've got a good one, you could do worse...' Apparently, this is one of those cars that people learn to love or hate, and for good reason.

Because Lemons do exist! We've got a 2002 Mazda Protťgť, bought new (which is rare for us), that has been an absolute lemon, and this car came highly recommended! And I have to say, I got sick of being on a first-name basis with everybody at the Volkswagen dealership too! I also had a brand new Toyota Celica, that they couldnít keep the front end aligned on... :upeyes:

But with just over 60,000-miles on it, I have to tell you, this PT Cruiser worries me a little... Its 60,000-mile service is due now, and I'm not about to give our rip-off Chrysler dealer another $1,500.00 for a job that's mostly "inspection", since I've been twice-burned before on that kind of deal. :steamed:

I do keep up with recommended maintenance, and run all synthetic fluids... Had the car not been in the body shop, I would've probably seen to this service already.

Still, given the mixed bag of reports on this car, I have to admit that it nags at me, as to whether or not to keep it.

Anyway, any informed recommendations on upgraded replacement parts for the 60,000-mile service would be welcomed! :dunno:

ya know if ya do your research, a harmonic balancer pully freezing up can burn a timing belt straight through in under 20 seconds. Causing it to snap, thus churning the engine like a garbage disposal with a lead weight inside.

I didnt say it DID. i said it may have because the vehicle was at the shop and i had not inspected the ENTIRE motor myself :-) you sir are not a mechanic or you would know that ;-)

So i havnt been on in a few days. Saturday morning the engine on my beloved Turbo Pt cruiser went pop like a zit.

Blew the head in 3 places, which cracked the block and threw a piston through the oil pan. all because of i have no idea why and it never overheated.

The car only has 78k on it so its not worth junking.

Im broke.......as i recently got engaged and threw all my $$ at a ring.

Thus......i had to sell every glock i own except for my 32 to finance a new engine :crying:

god hates me. its official. :crying:


I'm counting like zero sympathy votes.


That royally sucks man, I'm sorry to hear that happened.

I guess the brightside is the car was a gift, so it's not like you spent a crap ton of money on the car when you bought it, only to have it crap out.

At least you spent money on something that lasts and can be resold, like guns, instead of stuff that doesn't last or can't be sold. Like lapdances, for example.

Congratulations on the engagement ring, I hope this doesn't put a damper on things for too long. Try to stay positive, lifes too short ya know?


And to everyone saying why'd he own so many guns etc. Times change. It's not in everyones nature to horde money indefinately until something bad happens. The OP was saying it was only so bad because he just spent a few grand on a ring, and he didn't have any bills when he was buying the guns.

It is filled with armchair warriors, who have nothing better to do with their measly pointless unfulfilled lives, that the only way to make themselves feel big, powerful or even a single speck of useful in this world , they must act like stupid ignorant immature 13 year olds throwing temper tantrums and using the dumbest and most idiotic insults i have ever had the embarrassment, and time waste of reading in my entire life.

Do serious discussions go on here? Sometimes. But 95% of the membership here is a giant pissing contest of who can try to make themselves feel the coolest or get in the last meaningless hollow insult that really does nothing but makes you look the incompetent fools that you really are.

And in the real big boy world. Those of you who play this stupid highschool crap on here, i am certain have no friends, no wives, drink excessively and think back to 1979 and your highschool football glory years all night because the truth is none of you have what it takes to make anything of yourself other than a internet troll who attempts to make others feel bad on a daily basis to give your worthless meaningless lives some type of psudo quazi purpose.

I own many guns? hard to believe? i dont give a half of a rats red ass. I have nothing to prove to any single human being on the face of this planet. Because i am not a washed up college or highschool thug who only wishes to reclaim his glory days of shoving nerds heads in toilets and making their lives hell.

With that.........i leave this stupid whos got the biggest dick sausage fest with my pride, my morals, my self respect and the knowing that..when i go to sleep at night. I love my life. Some on here may honestly be able to say the same. I've seen the character in thousands of members here............however MOST............will not. Enjoy your stiff drinks and memories of a time where you believed you were liked. Truth is........i dont ****ing care :wavey:

Try the Political Forum sometime.

I'd say it is the general tone set here. Out of all the forums I frequent this has turned out to have the most immature members. Not all mind you but quite a few that would have been kicked out of other forums and probably have. I'll never understand the logic of certain things. I was admin of a forum once that had close to 5 times the paid advertisers I've seen here and yet I still wouldn't put up with some of the BS I see here. I just enjoy the forum as is and try to filter out some of the 3 year olds. That would be my advise to you. Good luck getting your PT fixed.

I respectfully submit that it would be very improbable for you to have sampled enough of this specific forum (GNG) in your short time here to arrive at those erroneous conclusions. There are a myriad of other forums (forae?) here, and it would take way more than 3 months (much less one) to get enough of a sense how this place flows.

GNG can be brutal, but it has it's own Karma/bs detector built in. Idiotic posts by people who appear to mirror those types of posts get flamed to high hell, because the "regulars" can spot those folks from 2 posts or 10 miles off, whichever is more distant.

If you post here acting like a know it all, chances are you're gonna get stuff dished back to you in extra servings. Don't come in here claiming to be king **** - lots of folks here at 1st view might seem to be simple folk - but we have everyone from federal agents, to rocket scientists, to MDs, to particle physicists, to CPAs to PhDs, to wealthy entrepreneurs, to jet setters here, and most do a fine job of remaining mute on those traits except when their expertise is called on.

This particular fellow who started this thread (who I have no row with)...read his posts. If there was ever a village missing a very certain specially educated person...well, we know where that person is.

Who in their right mind gets emotionally attached to a PT Cruiser? And who liquidates the bulk of their collection for a heart transplant on something like this? Is this something a rational person would do? I think not. What does that tell you about the OP. Are his stated actions rational? How much credence and credibility should we then place in his claims? Does the rational person blow up, curse everyone out and stalk away when folks don't agree with them? Rational level headed gun owners don't do that. Little men do that. Boys do that. Immature folk do that, and the been there done that folks here can see right thru the smoke & mirrors.

Yes, the high water mark for stupidity often times lifts the boats clear off the docks and washes them 1/4mile inland...but I think we are for the most part content with the homeostasis of this place.

1) Oh, I don't know about that... Haven't you ever walked into a new bar or a restaurant, and turned around and walked right out? Because I sure have. Iíve also given a new place a few tries, and decided it just wasnít where I wanted to beóthat I could do better; and invariably, I did.

2) That may be all well and true, but it is hardly a testimony to good character. Some of the biggest jerks Iíve encountered have been highly educated, thintelligent, ill-mannered, pompous asses, that lacked the common sense and decency that I possessed when I was twelve. Outside their areas of expertise, some of these guys are complete losses as human beings, and wonít be missed by anyone when they depart this world.

Living in Wisconsin as I do, I know for a fact that low-life can be found in the highest of places.

3) Each of us, including you, lives inside our heads. Given that the car was a gift, and he likes it, and given that it seems to have been damaged unnecessarily by a moron, and that the OP may have recourse to recover the cost of the damages, his attachment to it and desire to salvage it is not all that outrageous, really.

Whatís more, I think heís right in that we do have some real a-holes lurking here. The sad fact is, some of these guys really are just bullies looking for a new playground, because thatís all they know, because theyíre broken somehow, or just missing a chip... The OP was right about that. Iíve said it several times before, we have people right here on Glock Talk, that would pack a picnic for a public hanging. It is what it is.

1) Oh, I don't know about that... Haven't you ever walked into a new bar or a restaurant, and turned around and walked right out? Because I sure have. I’ve also given a new place a few tries, and decided it just wasn’t where I wanted to be—that I could do better; and invariably, I did.

You may disagree with me, but everything boils down to some level of attraction, or repulsion - Chemistry. (not talking about at the subatomic level or approaching the speed of light).

Just because as an individual you find something personally distasteful means that it is indeed so. Your mores and compass might be aligned different than where you happen upon. Example: I know (no exaggeration) HUNDREDS of people who intensely dislike guns, and upon entering here, would do as you state above. Does it mean it was a "bad" place? No. It simply means the chemistry between you and that place in that slice of time did not facilitate a strong enough bond.


2) That may be all well and true, but it is hardly a testimony to good character. Some of the biggest jerks I’ve encountered have been highly educated, thintelligent, ill-mannered, pompous asses, that lacked the common sense and decency that I possessed when I was twelve.

Well don't let your narrow myopic experiences perpetually taint reality, as the statistics are stacked against your anecdotal perspective. :)

My head is big, but it's not that big :tongueout:. From the timeline he presented, it does not appear recourse was a component of his decision making when he sold those guns. If you want to defend his actions - great. To proceed down this path of a discussion you really 1st must be honest enough to answer the question on if his behavior was "rational". My three year old cell phone falls, and is damaged. Let me sell a $400 gun for $300 so I can fix it, because I was given to me for free or a song...in the meanwhile I can get a newer, more robust phone for $50 without a contract from most dealers. His decision was not financially sound, no matter how it is presented, because attempts are collecting from "Pep Boys" is a long odds gamble.



What’s more, I think he’s right in that we do have some real a-holes lurking here. The sad fact is, some of these guys really are just bullies looking for a new playground, because that’s all they know, because they’re broken somehow, or just missing a chip...

I have an avatar? A boat avatar? Ok....if you say so (I have "viewing of avatars" turned off). It was placed there for some reason, which I either don't remember or care to disclose, but I've never owned a boat, or rented a boat (except for business or leisure for a few hours), in case you wanted to pursue that line of thought...

If you think there are "aholes" lurking here, you really need to thicken up in the skin dept. I have been here for nearly a decade, and most of the a-holes are exactly like the people who start threads like this, and then complain about it, and then slink off to return as a reincarnated ahole with a different screen name. I much prefer to look at people's behavior (or in this case posts) over a wide span before I arrive at conclusions as you have.

I would pack a picnic for a public hanging, but would intervene if I saw a child being sexually molested. There is a difference. Up until a century or two ago, public executions were considered fun, and if the person sentenced to die is proven guilty, I think they would still be a lot of fun. Not sure why we don't have more of these....:tbo:

BTW, I think I am done here in this thread.

The American stuff has gotten better. I got 186k out of a 2000 Silverado before the head cracked and the crack is still small enough that the truck is drivable. However I still think Honda and Toyota have the advantage on long term reliability.

My wife's 2002 Malibu had an intake manifold gasket go at around 90K. That's the biggest problem with GM V6 engines (at least the older ones). It usually isn't catastrophic.

Okay, I'm almost done here...

GT actually has some decent folks on board... And there is considerable expertise here on a variety of topics, including anything from kitchen cutlery to selecting an astronomical telescope.

But you're right in that it's a very mixed bag... The usual dreary chest thumping and herd mentalities present themselves, as the alpha-males snarl and posture, and the followers fall predictably into line behind them. But there are a few intrepid, self-directed souls lurking here as well; trust me, they are here...

But I will confess that Iím sometimes dismayed at how few catch on (as I did as a child), that most people don't play Follow the Leader, they play Follow the Follower... They just fall in line behind people that don't really know much more than they do; because they mistake belligerence for strength, and gentleness for weakness... And they perceive safety in numbers... It's all very predictable, but it still bugs me at times. To put it another way, there are plenty of people right here, right now, who would crucify Christ all over again, and perhaps, even pack a picnic for the event...

Blew the head in 3 places, which cracked the block and threw a piston through the oil pan. all because of i have no idea why and it never overheated.

The car only has 78k on it so its not worth junking.

Im broke.......as i recently got engaged and threw all my $$ at a ring.

Thus......i had to sell every glock i own except for my 32 to finance a new engine :crying:

when i aqquired them it was not. When i ran my own PC repair shop, i also was pulling 27k a year, lived with my brother free of rent and had no bills. so buying a glock a month was easy :-p

but a $4,600 bill out of the blue hit me pretty hard. especially after dropping a few K on a ring friday.

Money comes and goes and Glocks do too. But the nice thing about Glocks us that they are not expensive and can be replaced fairly easily. Good luck.

The "normal" thing to do would be to slap down some plastic for such repair bills. I respect a man that takes your approach. This approach to money will be helpful in your upcoming marriage. Congratulations, by the way on your recent engagement!

The average trans goes out at about 70-110k miles. I had a Ford Aerostar run 700k miles on three trans.

PT Crusier: Hadn't "burped" in 8 months
My 00 Mazda Protege: hasn't burped in....well....ever

I have always said any car company can produce a lemon (yes, even Honda or Toyota) and even Chrylser can produce a good car.

I wouldn't give up my well maintained 2000 Mazda Protege with 292,000 miles for anything. Its clean, I still get in the high 30's for mileage, its been paid for (interest free) for going on 9 years and I know every little scratch and ding

The op's car may have run out of oil and blown to pieces. It happens. I have heard of shops leaving the oil drain plug loose and ruining engines.

I don't understand how an average car blows a transmission at 70-110K

My 00 Protege has 292K on the clock
My brother's 03 Corolla has over 200K
My dad's 94 Escort Wagon had 228K on it after 12 years before he sold it
My wife's old 03 Honda CRV had 140K on it when we traded it in
My brother had 2 Ford Fiestas both with over 120K on them before one was hit by a snow plow and another the engine blew.
My BIL's old Ford Ranger had 389K on it before the engine died. His Ford Explorer has over 150K on it and his only problem has been the brakes which for whatever reason eat up pads

None of these cars ever had problems with the transmission - are we just lucky?

However, I completely agree on the oil change problem. People look at me funny when I say I still change my own oil. Loose drain plugs being one problem. The second is you never know if they actually did the work unless you check it - and at that point you might as well do it yourself.

The local Walmart about two years ago got in big trouble when it was discovered they rarely changed out a car's filter if they got really busy on weekends. Just drain the oil and charge the customer for a full oil change.

A guy caught them on it - I was in the car area buying oil - when he confronted the store manager. Their solution?

Refund him his money....on the cost of a filter...because after all they gave him clean oil.

A class action suit turned into the store giving free oil changes for a month (Walmart's idea not the court's...then they were really busy) and compensation to EVERY customer who had a oil change done on a weekend going back three years.

He posted later ITT that he had a coolant flush done and they used the wrong coolant, which led to pretty much a disaster.

He's gonna make it up in volume. Not to mention the profit on that PT if he sells it later.

If a person, or company, has to sell an item, or product, for less than they paid, or it cost to make, they that person or company always, and I repeat, always, must sell that item or product in a higher volume in order to realize any profits from those sales!

No ........however my General, suspension, breaking system, cooling systems, emissions and fuel system ASE certificates say that i am. The State inspection license backs it up :-)

I love my car haha I do run Mobil-1. I also run Marvels to keep the cams sparkling. I use nothing other than LUCAS products and i just came inside from working on the head gasket of my sisters Ram :-) did you know that even though the hood stickers say to time it at 1.758 it should be timed at 1.600? just a little info :-)
What is the "A" number of that fuel systems ASE? or the Emmisions one? I have an ASE master Auto tech cert, and also a college degree. I also have 15years of experience to back it up. If you are a mechanic then I am a monkeys uncle. BTW, a state inspectors license usually takes a few hour course and a test at the end, a mechanic it does not make. If its costing you 4600 bucks to replace that engine, you are no mechanic. BS all the way around. I would be surprised if there ever where 13 glocks.

You're a mechanic and it's costing you $4600? Must not be a very good one.

I wonder how much of that is the engine? The OP said (I think) that he was putting in a crate motor. At that mileage I'd go with a rebuild.

Also if the engine grenaded like he said then he probably won't get anything back for a core charge.

when i aqquired them it was not. When i ran my own PC repair shop, i also was pulling 27k a year, lived with my brother free of rent and had no bills. so buying a glock a month was easy :-p

but a $4,600 bill out of the blue hit me pretty hard. especially after dropping a few K on a ring friday.

If you were "pulling 27k a year" that's only about $500 per week, which is not a lot of money. On the other hand, if you were rent free with no bills that's $500 for you to spend as you see fit. You were buying guns, 1 per month, but what else were you buying?

Okay, I'm almost done here...

GT actually has some decent folks on board... And there is considerable expertise here on a variety of topics, including anything from kitchen cutlery to selecting an astronomical telescope.

But you're right in that it's a very mixed bag... The usual dreary chest thumping and herd mentalities present themselves, as the alpha-males snarl and posture, and the followers fall predictably into line behind them. But there are a few intrepid, self-directed souls lurking here as well; trust me, they are here...

But I will confess that I’m sometimes dismayed at how few catch on (as I did as a child), that most people don't play Follow the Leader, they play Follow the Follower... They just fall in line behind people that don't really know much more than they do; because they mistake belligerence for strength, and gentleness for weakness... And they perceive safety in numbers... It's all very predictable, but it still bugs me at times. To put it another way, there are plenty of people right here, right now, who would crucify Christ all over again, and perhaps, even pack a picnic for the event...

The thread is actually a tragic allegory. The 13 represents a nonexistent number on a clock, meaning the OPís time is up. He has a meltdown and hence, is no longer on this thread. The OPís statement of ďGod hates meĒ is actually a prophetic announcement that GT omniscience and wrath will reign down upon him. His love for the car is actually affection for a person who is horribly deformed and disfigured.

Just purchased my first Glock, a G36. I was impressed with the gun: size okay, ergonomics okay, recoil fine, very accurate. BUT, the gun FAILED TO FEED the second round and every round thereafter for two mags. The gun has not fired a full mag, both mags that came with the gun, and only feeding two out of six. Ammo used: Win SXT and white-box 45.

I saw an earlier post that said something to the effect "great gun, jams occasionally." What! A carry gun that jams occasionally is a great gun?

This is GLOCK PERFECTION?!

The G36 is designed to be a carry gun, not a paper puncher or can popper. As an FFL, I thank God I tested this gun before selling it or carrying it myself.

This gun could get the user killed.

Maybe its just the G36, but any gun, new and fresh out of the box, clean, and with good factory ammo, will not fire the second round puts me off the manufacturer. PS and no f---king limp wrist here, so don't fire that myth back to me. A carry gun should cycle whether you are upside down, inside out, covered in blood and have only one finger available to pull the trigger.

I'll never buy another Glock and will dissuade any customer from buying one. (Also the Ruger LC9; it sucks as well) In fact, I will not stock Glocks or special order one. I care about my customers, and would feel pretty bad if I sold them a gun that got them killed or severely injured.

I'd would sell to a gunsmith, which I am not.

Received the gun on Friday and took a putt to the range, came back to the shop and fired into a sand bucket -- death grip on the thing because of the limp-wrist BS -- not one mag cycled through. Spent round ejects fine, but slide locks back with no feed of the next round. Also primer strikes are deep with a lateral crease from center to edge. Every round the same. Have to manually move the slide slightly back while engaging slide release, or remove and reinsert the mag to chamber the next round.

I'm done with it. Keep the bidding going and I'll consider . . . :rofl:

Let me understand. You got ONE gun that you couldn't get to fire twice. You lacked ability to trouble shoot. (maybe some cardboard stuck in slide rails?) so rather then take it to someone who can check it, sending it back. (or any other normal response to item that does not function correctly) You decide all items from that manufacture are junk...

It may be your grip. I picked up a single stack 9. It would never stay open after last shot, seems I was putting pressure on slide stop. A 1911 that Failed to feed was also my grip on slide.

I've never known of a PT Cruiser to jam. Hmmmm...?


Anyway, generally speaking, usually, typically there only 5 things which will cause the ever reliable g36 to jam?

#1) Bad bench loaded ammo,

#2) Limp wristing,

3) Limp wristing,

4) Limp wristing

and

5) Limp wristing while sitting on the hawpa.

After years and years of shooting wiht police and trained shooters, it took Glock Talk for me to find out the most reliable gun I've ever seen, in real life, is a POS on the internet.:rofl:

No kidding huh?

I remember the time I took a new shooter to the range. He had a brand new G36 that kept having FTF, but only in his hands. So I paid him what he paid for it and its been flawless since.

You apparently failed to read my post.

I got the gun on Friday (the day before yesterday), tested it that day, found the problem, and e-mailed Glock. And yes, if a CLEAN GUN FRESH OUT OF THE BOX, TESTED WITH NEW WINCHESTER AMMO, WILL NOT FUNCTION, I'm put off the brand.

quote of the year material right here;

YungDickGlick, you need a mentor. May I recommend my good friend Vart?

For the first five pages, I thought this was a Vart story. You just need to trade that PTCruiser in for a Pontiac Grand-Am...then trade it in for a Infiniti SUV....then trade it in for a V6 Mustang....then trade it in for a Mini-van...and then trade that for ..say a 1987 Suburban with off-road suspension and some humongous engine that get's 4 mpg.

God doesn't hate you. You were just exceptionally stupid for spending a boatload of money on an engagement ring.

Really guys? Arguing over mechanical problems? Arguing over the philosophy of spending or saving? Talking down to one another?

You must be new here. GT sport.

PS - I predict this thread will last for years.
