Car Doctor


Recommended Posts

A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a car when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop. The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his car when the mechanic shouted across the Garage.

 

"Hey, Doc, want to take a look at this?"

 

The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the engine.

 

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its' heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I make $39,675 a year and you get the really big bucks ($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

 

The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to the mechanic..........

 

"Try doing it with the engine running."

I think the doctor has it easier.... he only has two models to work with and his equipment keeps improving... wish I had that kind of luck... LOL

      Back in the 1990s, some shop owner's feared that fuel injection, 100 mile spark plugs, the elimination of the Distributor cap, rotor and extended fluid services would be our demise. But, that didn't happen. 
      Now I hear many in our industry state that "There is no needed work on an electric vehicle, they are problem free." 
      My opinion, let's not fall into thinking that the EV car will run forever of even for years without needed service.  The EV still has tires, suspension, brakes, and a whole new area of opportunities. It will be different, but there will be a need for the Automotive Technicians and for repair shops.
