Friendly Advice

Posted: April 12, 2013 in Uncategorized

If you own a 2003 Chevy Avalanche or similar GM vehicle, don’t attempt to change your own transmission fluid and filter.  If you’re a professional with a vehicle lift and all that jazz you might be fine, but otherwise I would take it to a shop somewhere.

I spent 5 hours helping my dad change his today after work.  It was a filthy, bloody, frustrating nightmare.  Its definitly not as easy as it was in the 70’s and 80’s; vehicles have changed a lot since then.  We both learned a lot about the truck today, but it wasn’t worth the hassle.  There’s a reason I never opted to be a mechanic . . .

There will be no other posts tonight as I am completely drained of all life.  In fact, I’m laying in bed as I type this, barely holding my eyes open.  Ill resume the survival updates and other posts tomorrow.

Thanks for understanding and goodnight.
