Default My uncle

My uncle does alot of wrenching on cars for cash & he does a pretty good job but it is always funny to hear him talk to one of his customers. Becasue he trys to make everything sound super technical like he'* talking about the space shuddle. & when I'm around with my cousin'* & my dad we like to make fun of him a little about it. Like he was just about to change someones turn signals for them today and I asked if he was going to flush the signal fluid too?

Anyone else got any funny car terms that really aren't anything? ie "muffler bearings"
