No story. Just well overdue. Was doing some antiquing (of a sort), and was working around a lot of rusty stuff, which reminded me to go take care of that.

If the clutch engages sometimes, then it's not the clutch.

Download a copy of the service manual and dig in!
@Ashikabi ......yes, you could read up on it for your own edification ..... however, I would suggest you take your car into an A/C certified shop and have them fix it ......

Good to know it wasn't due to an encounter with a set of rusty handcuffs ......

Reviewed entire footage captured by dashcam recording while car was in service.

Few thoughts:

They like my anime stickers but think one of them is sailor moon.

They were checking out my tail lights. They like the older valenti lights rather then the newer ones.

They used some no name gas that I've never heard of. Dunno if 89 or 92 octane. They also kept putting more gas in even though one tech said it was technically full. Estimated half tank or so of no name gas, with unknown octane, mixed in with usual Chevron. Plan to run it down tomorrow by gentle driving around.

People like slamming doors shut. Guess they didn't realize its not a heavy door and a firm push can close it.

One guy, didn't look like a tech, seemed to enjoy getting his jollies off in the parking garage by revving the car a few times. Luckily, the engine and fluids were already at operating temp. He also didn't rev it for that long, probably 2-3 seconds twice and sounded like it didn't go past 4-5k rpm.

3rd guy hopped into backseat on the way to fill up tank again to confirm issue was fixed. Best convo ever:
>3rd guy:"This has got to be a girl car."
>2nd guy:"His name is Steve?"
>3rd guy:"But look at all these anime girls!"
>Driver:"That would make sense. Why would a guy have all guys?"
>3rd guy:"You can have a warrior"
That gave me a chuckle

Left the car in ACC for an estimated 4 hours, spread across the 2.5 days they had it. Need to check battery level tomorrow.

Overall, the techs treated my car with more respect than the 1 valet (as far as I know. Well, except for the whole repeated attempts at filling the tank. Hopefully no adverse effects occur from that.

Need context on the valet.

This is gold. If it's half as funny as it sounds in my head please share it.

Also, what's up with the new guy, iManage? Another flake?

What do you mean?

I dropped off the car in the AM. He moved car to parking garage, stuck it in manual mode and drove the car in what sounded like 1st gear.. probably hit 25 max. When he parked the car, he revved it a couple of times, but didnt go past 5k, from what it sounded like.

Aw, jeez. I wasn't suggesting he try to fix it himself, just figure out what's up and then take it in.

That may make the shot worth it though depending on their use

sorry guys, I'm not used to this online thing. I somehow thought I was being ignored, but I forget, people have lives, and sometimes life happens.

I'll stick to asking certain people (who will respond to my PM's), and I'll just treat it like an e-mail message.

No harm no foul.
Peace
