Sounds like the kid was beating on it and pushed out a head gasket or worse, cracked the head or block

That wouldnt surprise me one bit..... His son in law is 48, and seems to have zero respect for my customer's house and property. He and his girlfriend(my customer's daughter) have moved in to my customer's house in July '11, and he doesnt work at all, because he's laid off now for 5 months or so, so he just lays around the house all day and does nothing. He has chores to do, but almost never actually does them. He doesnt clean up after himself, but neither does his girlfriend. You should have seen their old apartment..... It would be best described as pure filth and squalor. He weighs about 380lbs, and she weighs about 400lbs. They dont do ANY cleaning, ever....... She is an animal hoarder, and has 7 cats and a guinnea pig that she doesnt take care of.

So I wouldnt be surprised if he didnt go out and raise holy heck in the Buick! I even have to maintain the son in law's truck and repair it when it breaks down, at my customer's expense! The SIL doesnt pitch in at all. My customer is in a bad way from a physical standpoint, and probably wont be alive in 2 years, so they take advantage of him... Whats he gonna do about it? He wont throw them out....

The SIL is also exaggerating/faking injuries from an accident last year to get a settlement.
