Just wait....

My brother does high end car work. Some of the new cars do not have dipsticks to check the oil. When you do an oil change you have to plug in to a computer and add the oil and watch how full it is on the computer.

If you do not get it right they dash will complain about the oil being to high or too low to the car owner during temp extremes.

He had a car in the the driver door window motor was bad and had an engine issue cold. The owner did not want the window motor fixed, just the start issue. The fix needed to be the window motor. The window motor put junk on the computer bus at key turn which prevented the dash from talking to the body computer. The engine computer did not get info from the dash through the body computer cause of the window motor computer talking too much. The owner still did not want the window motor fixed, just the engine fixed.

So does the T sound better and better everyday?
