Nothing too exciting today in the shop... old 94 truck with charging problems that a guy had put multiple alternators and batteries in before bringing it into get it diagnosed, a simple bad ground fix and it was back on the road again. Changed a trans cooler line on a 09 Silverado, fixed an ABS connector on a 06 Sierra, diagnosed an SES light on a 2013 Lacrosse (fuel composition sensor). Finished off the day with a sold 2013 Equinox putting on a trailer hitch, winter tires and roof rails. Pretty easy day.

Yesterday was more fun, 07 Saturn Aura 3.5L (Pontiac G6), lower intake gaskets, power steering pump, power steering gear, trans cooler lines, trans flush, stabilizer link, and alignment.

I prefer to eat my beaver tails without all those toppings.

The GMC needed tires badly the factory Bridgestone ones were shot. So I picked up some Firestone Transfore At tires.
