Default Mechanics...They never listen

Ok.. many of you know my car is getting struts soon. All 4, I bought the strut mounts/bearings at the same time. With 150K on the car...why put the new struts on and have the old bearing go bad right after.

Also I have a cat to weld in.

Been helping my buddy Dan the mechanic a bit lately.. I spoke to him before about doing the work and he'* good with it.

Conversation a few minutes ago was that we are finishing up a motor job tonight, and I'll leave my car with him.
To do the struts, and catalytic. Before he also said if I couldn't find this issue my car is having to drop off a manual and the car....he'd figure it out.

Struts, mounts and cat are in teh trunk. FSM'* will be on the front seat....lol

Let'* see how good he is...

Then he says to me... all four struts???? Geez..
I think he forgot the part where I told him about everything.

PS, if he'* a "mechanic", is there any reason he'd need the book for struts and cat??? Seems pretty straight forward to me.

The Book is for the lean bank situation.

Just hope Dan doesn't begin the work on your car at 2:00 a.m. after you guys get the that motor dropped in. Are you "assisting" Dan with the struts/cat/P0171 work....or are you just gonna watch?

We wouldn't do easy work til the middle of the night. I'm sure that'll be a tomorrow or Monday type of thing. As for the codes and issues...I'm sure it'* going to take a few minutes for him to find this one.
