Ok today I worked on my car at my auto shop at school

Found some BIG problems!!!! WOPPIEEEEEE!!!!:D *par-t* *par-t*

I bet everyone remembers when i spun my car right.... Well turns out I broke one of the threads on my front right shock mount.... and i also might have put a hole in my power steering cause I didnt have any fluid in the car at all!!!!


So I put in power steering fluid today and I need new shock mount for the front right...


I really hope i dont have a powr steering fluid leak but i wil soon find out.....

So now i need the following....

Front brakes
Rad
Power Steering leak fixed (maybe)
back right shock is poped
front bumper repairs
rust spots fixed
and some other goodies ill soon find out about *sad*

That's probably way too tight man, try to avoid stripping your oilpan and oil pump.

yea its a REAL big pain in the ass if you strip the pan but as long as you didnt turn it till it stoped then it moved again the threads should be ok just be careful especially when taking it out I sugest that the car still be warm when you start to take out the plug that way the metal is expanded and it will be eaier to take out try not to tug on the bolt to hard cause you can strip them taking it out too.
jeez
good luck man:huh?:

your car could be bent after hitting it that hard bro...

That might be what caused ur lights and all that shit to get all crooked

wow that's alot of problems to have at once, it's a good thing that most of it can be fixed for $1000 or less in total.
(that's if there's nothing wrong with your power steering, and not counting paint for the bumper)

if you start to notice a whining noise when you turn, check the power steering fluid levels again. And if there's nothing wrong, keep that topped up whenever you start to hear that sound because it's pretty expensive to replace if broken.

i can get a rad for 300$ and then installing it is pretty easy
