Tune-ups, problem diagnosis, minor and major subsystem repair and replacement, such as:
70 Toyota: Did a valve job on the engine, plus a head gasket replacement on the side of I-80 outside of Big Springs, Nebraska, and timing chain replacement on the side of the same freeway 90 miles from Lovelock, Nevada. Overhauled brakes and replaced water pump and starter (what do you expect from a car that cost $35?).
76 Honda: Replaced transmission, blocked radiator with one scrounged from a wrecked Opal Cadet on the Nebraska/Wyoming border late one Saturday evening. Replaced engine.
80 Mazda: A dealership incorrectly diagnosed a major problem as a $1400 exhaust replacement. After refusing their services, I correctly diagnosed the problem as a leak in the vacuum advance diaphragm ($14). Miscellaneous repairs such as brake overhaul, replaced starter.
84 Jeep CJ-7: Replaced starter, exhaust system.
85 Jeep Cherokee: Replaced water pump, starter, radiator, gas tank, and rear bumper. Diagnosed loose engine grounding wire (a royal pain!)
92 Jeep Cherokee: Nothing yet, despite 88,990 on the odometer. Thank goodness, because those serpentine belts are a royal pain to replace, plus that 5.0 was wedged in with a shoehorn!
