Hey dad bought it. I had a heinekin too. I thought he was messing with me when he told me to drive the truck in reverse and slam on the brakes to adjust them. I'll be damned it worked. And he suprised me and paid for all the stuff too. That's what dads are for.

Actually, no need to slam them. Just hold pressure on the brake while backing.

As long as your adjusters are not frozen, and you lube them while your changing pads...

The backup setting is the most fun!

I took my Ranger in today it had an oil leak. It has 35700 miles on it. This is what they did:

They verified my concern and added oil leak detection dye, performed oil leak diagnosis. Leaking from 3 different points rear main seal. Leaking oil pan, gasket leaking and camshaft syncronizer leaking. They did something to the transmission to access. And flex plate to access and replaced crankshaft main seal. Installed 3 bar engine support; removed engine mount bolts and raised engine to access oil pan and replaced oil pan gasket. Replaced camshaft syncronizer cleaned off residual oil, verified repairs. All is OK at this time.

Never have I had a car with something as major as this with so little miles.

It is still under warranty; barely made it though.

Yesterday:

Today:
went outside and pumped the shit outta the clutch peddle hoping it would help, but no... Idiots at the shop didn't bleed my master at all so my peddle has like 2 or so inches of slop. FAIL.
