sometime we do come across the un-usuals occurrences. you as a auto repairer; what particular un-usual fault have you come across in a vehicle?

Rats eating distributor cables connected to spark plugs. It looks as if Village people were at work when I saw the incidence.

Vehicle unable to start after changing injector, brain box, bla bla not until it was observed that a wire from the fuse section has been disconnected sad and person don spend close to 100k

Rati, rati!

Na ordinary rat na im pursue the lion king(aka Bubu) commot from Aso Rock.

Rat's destructive tendencies can make the detection of a car's fault difficult. Don't allow rats make your engine bay their dwelling.

The most embarrassing moment i had when my car got fault was when the AIR FLOW METER GOT BURNT
NISSAN SERENA BUS

1. CAR SAPS FUEL LIKE 30LITRES IN 30MINUTES

2.CAR WOUNT RACE TO SOME EXTENT AND WOUNT MOVE AS EXPECTED

3. CAR JERKS

4.SYMPTOMS IS BLACK SMOKE

5.Some evil mechanics told me it had no solution i should sell the Car at Jankara Ijaiye Ojokoro Market(at 150,000)
Car of 1.5MN


I INSIST THAT IT WILL WORK


AIRFLOW METER BROUGHT TO ME IN ALL NUKES AND CRANES OF THE MARKET WAS OVER 100 no one worked


I nearly lost hope to go and park it in the house for ever

I got there by 7am in the Morning that faithfull day and i was about living by 7pm when this guy brought the Airflow meter because i was nearly crying that i lost money

But at first i said he should not worry! because i lost hope

But i took d courage and he put it...but lo and behold the engine came up, stops black smoke,raves well, stoped fuel sapping and it became normall



I spent over 200k in fixing it!

Because i have first bought almost all component in the car thinking its the Fault due to suggestions from evil mechanics


I bought brain Box 5. ,fuel Pumps countless, Injector System

Alot of Gas-Fuel

And workmanships

Am still using d car .it a good Car

I saw 2 cockroaches making love on the ignition bay in the engine cover.
I couldn't believe my eyes... I told the owner we would have to perform a full engine replacement procedure with immediate effect so the cockroaches would relocate.
