          Exhaust is both dirtier and simpler than brake repair.

              Replacing a blown exhaust gasket or a rusted exhaust pipe/muffler is the dirtiest job in cardom, but its technically easy.

                I work on our cars, unless it's something made intentionally impossible like the computer on my wife's 2005 Nissan Spec V.

                  I used to work on my cars. Once replaced the entire rear on my 72 Dart.

                  Not anymore. Nowadays I'm content to let the shop do it. The computer control of everything changed the game; I'm no longer interested in doing engine rebuilds.

                      This thread wasn't aimed at you, Newbie. I know you know an assload about automotive tech, and I know you don't enjoy fixing cars. So relax, you're good. Thid thread is aimed at dudes that don't even know how to pull codes so they can at least know how to speak with a technician.

                        I'm right with ya.

                        I had a 76 Buick and I did a clutch plate, brakes, oil changes shocks, exhuast stuff and much more.

                        That thing was always busted.

                        I haven't had a car I could work on, nor wanted to work on since then.

                        Computer everthing these days and I mean everything, even the shops have tons of analysis tech stuff, I don't think they could do it without plugging the car in these days.

                        I don't even bother to change my oil. At 19.95 it's not worth my time.

                        They have free coffee and wireless.

                              That would be me. I don't even have the plug in thing to pull code, nor do I know where to plug it in.

                              The thing is I don't even care.

                              We have a 10 year old chevy with 48k on it and a 95 Nissan with like 29K on it, I had brakes done on the Chevy and the brake lines went (rust). Never an engine problem with either. I think one of sensors went off when the Chevy was under warranty.


                              The Chevy's going next year, as long as my wifes' job is stable.

                              I'm not sure what we will get, but the Chevy dealer moved to a few towns over.
