Witsend Made it to level 2!  Looks like you are on your way to becoming famous

Default Close calls

I seem to remember using the torch to heat something on a vehicle a few years ago in the back and some how I heard a woof and saw the plastic gas tank expand like it took in a deep breath and then it exhaled and contracted, but fortunately nothing exploded. Anyone else have any close calls

DtechJon Congratulations!  Your peers have given you enough reputation to put you into the fist level!


I had a 2005 2500 Duramax silverado that I was working on for a intermittent bucking/going in to neutral concern. I duplicated the concern on the service drive..I opened the hood and disconnected the grey connector at the tcm to see If I could at least get reverse and 3rd gear.. went back and plugged the connector back in and all I heard was a solenoid clicking on and the truck jumped in reverse...thank god I jumped off the ladder fast enough to move around the door and mash the brake pedal with my palm...I Guess the prndl wasn't working on the truck (there is a bulletin for that) I stuck it in reverse on accident...the boss was watching the whole thing too...
