Whats it called when an old car with low miles has bad wear? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Lounge For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

Nope. Lemon is when it is newer, has low miles, and is still a POS...

Thanks for the answer.

When a bearing flatspots, does that mean it deforms out of its orignal shap?

Think of it like when you hang your bike up in the winter by the rims. If you don't rotate them periodically, the rims get out of round. Then when you ride it, it looks like your on one of those bikes at the circus

Yup. When a bearing flatspots, it'* garbage. Is this a rod bearing? Or a standard roller bearing?
