Don't ever listen to the advice of a baby boomer. Don't trust them. They will ruin your life.
Every piece of advice I ever got from one of these dirt bags has been bad. About a year ago was the last time I gave them a chance. I have this one baby boomer at my work who pretends to be a kindly old grandpa character. He does have a foul mouth and is taking a good job from a needy generation x or millennial.

Grandpa told me that he has a good mechanic. He loves how his mechanic is so helpful. His mechanic is so helpful that when he fixes a part he will call to tell you he found another part that's about to break so he can save you some money. So kind of mechanic isn't he?

I went to this mechanic when my old car had a gas smell coming out of the engine. I knew it was dangerous and needed to be fixed. So I decided to give grandpa baby boomer's advice a try.

Big mistake. The mechanic said he found the problem and it was a fuel pressure regulator and it would only cost $600 to fix. So I let him at it and he calls me to tell me it's taking longer than expected to fix. After two days I'm getting upset since I needed the car to go to work. I took the car to him on my day off. Then I get a call saying he can't fix it until he gets the parts.

Three days later I'm forced to use a cab to get to work and have to ask for a ride home from work from a coworker. The mechanic calls and says my car is ready on the fourth day. The bill comes out to $1200. I was charged double and triple for some parts and $600 was for labor. The mechanic broke my ignition switch and blamed it on me and then charged me for the part. I couldn't fight it since it was a 1989 Chevy Beretta.

I drive the car for a week and on my birthday the car died when I was on my way to work. I had the car towed to the mechanic shop and was late to work that day. The mechanic shop calls and tells me they fixed the car and I won't be charged since it was there fault.

I get to the shop to pick up the car and it sounds like they broke the muffler when moving it. I just took off since they were so incompetent that it wasn't worth trying to get it fixed anymore after all I spent on it. I just wanted to use it a few more years before trashing it and they made it not worth it.

Thanks you stupid baby boomers. Last time I'll trust one of you dirt bags.

Not to mention my baby boomer parent tried to get me to join the navy. If I had done that I probably would be all messed up and have become a total narcissist asshole the rest of my life. Most navy vets are that way. I probably be on zoloft right now and on my 3rd divorce.

This is just a few examples of why not to trust these bitches.

Who cares if it's a troll or not.

I have seen this bullshit on a few occasions from the same crew.
They have been married for decades, and talk openly about plowing young teens.
Its supposed to be "normal"

But the same people, if you talked about plowing their 19 yr old daughter, would go batshit and fight

As opposed to being one anyways?

You apparently have no mechanical knowledge what so ever. Have you ever attempted to actually fix anything, other than the wifi config on a smartphone?

Being mechanically inclined, I am calling bullshit on parts of your story and you are just making shit up. Thats not to say there are not crooked mechanics out there, there are.

Having said that, fuel pressure regulators, depending on the car can be a complete pain in the ass. What may seem simple to an inept mind can actually be tedious and time consuming to a experienced mechanic.

On the other hand, why don't you learn how to fix things yourself or at least educate yourself to the point you actually know what the mechanic is talking about.

Mechanically, no they are not. They still operate the same way. The difference being is all the computer shit they have stacked on top of it now. Mostly due to the fucking EPA. The trick now being, figuring out if it is the fucking sensor that has failed or the actual part it is supposed to be monitoring.

Then I get a call saying he can't fix it until he gets the parts.

Three days later I'm forced to use a cab to get to work and have to ask for a ride home from work from a coworker. The mechanic calls and says my car is ready on the fourth day. The bill comes out to $1200. I was charged double and triple for some parts and $600 was for labor. The mechanic broke my ignition switch and blamed it on me and then charged me for the part. I couldn't fight it since it was a 1989 Chevy Beretta.

I drive the car for a week and on my birthday the car died when I was on my way to work. I had the car towed to the mechanic shop and was late to work that day. The mechanic shop calls and tells me they fixed the car and I won't be charged since it was there fault.

I get to the shop to pick up the car and it sounds like they broke the muffler when moving it. I just took off since they were so incompetent that it wasn't worth trying to get it fixed anymore after all I spent on it. I just wanted to use it a few more years before trashing it and they made it not worth it.

Thanks you stupid baby boomers. Last time I'll trust one of you dirt bags.

Not to mention my baby boomer parent tried to get me to join the navy. If I had done that I probably would be all messed up and have become a total narcissist asshole the rest of my life. Most navy vets are that way. I probably be on zoloft right now and on my 3rd divorce.

This is just a few examples of why not to trust these bitches.

If you had any kind of skills you would have figured it out yourself and had it fixed for the cost of a $50 regulator.

Back in my day we fixed simple shit like that ourselves.

Mechanically, no they are not. They still operate the same way. The difference being is all the computer shit they have stacked on top of it now. Mostly due to the fucking EPA.

Ya but how much does it cost to buy the special tools to fix electronic shit in cars these days and the way small under the hood room too? Its not like you can just take a wrench and hammer to it with all the open room of a 80s truck under the hood. Its barely worth the hassle and time and energy and money doing it yourself -

You obviously are not mechanically or technically inclined, at the least never researched it.

You do not need very many special tools for the electronics. Most of the time, you can get by with a simple ohm\voltage meter. Typically electronic components cannot be repaired and must be replaced. Which usually consists of unbolting, disconnecting it and reinstalling the new component. In the rare cases where a special tool is needed, Autozone will probably have one you can use, for free, with a deposit of course.

As far as engine codes there are free apps you can download and a code scanner can be bought for around 20 dollars. You do not need any more specialized tools for the electronics than you do for the engine itself.

The engine compartments are tighter for sure, but some patience will see you through the process. I have always done the maintenance on my own cars, old and new. I hate putting the fate of my car into someone elses hands. If I do it, I know its done and done the right way. I am not even a mechanic either, just something I know how to do because I wanted to learn. Simply because I did not want to be a victim of a crooked mechanic and save myself money. I have literally saved myself many thousands of dollars over the years.

I'm a boomer and intend to test drive every hot female cunt, ass and mouth I find that's under 25. They either know how to do me right or they will learn. Since most millenial guys are fags, it really doesn't matter. I intend to inseminate as many of these girls as I can before I die, since my cum and my DNA will live on in their cells and brians forever.
