Ya, it's happened to me three times now.
First time, I had the car towed 'cause I didn't bother checking the obvious and figured it was catastrophic engine failure because of the way the intake/exhaust sounded while I was cranking it. 6 hours and $300 tow... Decided to take a look-see while I was waiting for a ride and found the rotor screw laying in the cap.
Second time, same car, I was a tad bit smarter and only a mile from the house - 15 minutes and $0. Replaced the distributor anyways 'cause the threads were shot and no amount of lock-tite was gonna do it.
Third time was in the other Sentra, same thing...welded the screw hole shut, drilled and re-tapped it, good to go. Should've given that one a bit of preventative maintenance with some lock-tite, but blew it off...
99% of the questions that are "STRANGE
" have a dirt simple answer...usually answered by a dirt simple search.
Is it just me, or does the majority overlook the obvious?
Somebody ate a whole bag of dumbass for breakfast.
Why do people continue to run a vehicle when a warning light comes on or starts flashing? Isn't that a clue that something is wrong and you probably should NOT drive it?
Is this whole car driving thing really freekin' brain surgery?
Here's something new for the crowd/clowns...
"A little bit of Google goes a long way!"
