  • stupid saturn mechanics. DUCT TAPE GLORY!

    so about 2 months ago I had a new motor put in the saturn. saturn did a great job other then not tightening the diff down enough. but heres the pissy part when they installed it they broke the support I made for my intake. ya know the support so it stays still and doesn't rub on the battery tie down. well I figured it couldn't be that bad so I let it be. today I opened the hood to check fluids and I looked atthe filter to see if I should get a new one soon. well when I moved the piping I noticed a grinded down part on the pipe. the battery tiedown ground through the pipe! only a small amount. I don't have the materials to make another one right now. so as I learned long ago duct tape fixes all. I covered the ground down part and put some on the part it was rubbing against to it didn't cut through the tape. I checked it and its fine so far but I'm lookin for a perminent solution. any ideas beside buying a new intake?

      Why would they mess with the diff while changing the engine?
