Was at the motor factor for some anty freeze the young lad behind the counter having a very small amount of knowledge.
looks at me very serous face on him you over heat your engine me just looking straight back trying to keep a straight face
Over heat the engine think not yes it will no it wont this went on for a few min any way walked over to the shelf got what I wanted.
I am not going to be responsible if you over het your engine if I sell this to you by this time the blood is just starting to rise.
the manager walks in what's the problem think I am getting my chane yanked by this idiot

On a similar note I went into similar establishment for a common 17inch wiper blade which was behind the counter and two of the lads there said they couldn't find it without a registration number!! Yes the blood does boil, sorry for hijacking thread Bill.

ive had the situation where the object i wanted was on the shelf behind the counter but they couldnt sell it to me as there was no code in the sytem for it. when i said just sell it to me they said then they would be short on their stock take how would they be short if its not in the computer?

Getting better
Modern engines are a mix of numerous metals all connected with a cooling water system. The coolant is now a mix of water, glycol and inhibitor. Without the inhibitor the components soon start to corrode and fail.

I worked in the tropics and the mechanic used to put anty freeze in the cooling system once circulated the temp on the gauge dropped I complained abut the engine on the rig running hot would never have believed it.
if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes but to much is bad to as it increases viscosity slowing down circulation cussing over heating
getting the right balance is the thing
