ehehe, this topic is amusing. I get in trouble with my fiance because I have an uncanny knack of knowing what'* wrong with my vehicles. When the rad blew in my pickup truck, my first words were "The thermostat, temperature sensor, and water pump are bad, too!".....
A fan clutch and a week later, I got a temperature sensor. Me: "Uhhh, honey? It'* still going to overheat. The water pump is bad and so is the thermostat...." Truck: *overheats*
I got a thermostat. In another week, I finally got my water pump and it quit overheating.
Me: "Didn't I say something about this two weeks ago?"
Him: "I don't want to hear it outta you."
Similar situations have happened with the suspension in the Bonneville, the spark plugs, the cap and rotor, the choke, an exhaust valve, etc...
Men would make their lives SO much easier if they'd listen to us womenfolk once in a while :P
