Let another man touch my truck, she got mad.

Took in my D90 in for a new brake MC and new thermostat (on the grounds that I can't bleed brakes by myself and it is cold out) at the local mechanic who does my state inspections.

Work done, fair price etc. Pick up the truck (20min after work was done and it was test driven) and NO START!

No fuel pump noise.



Fidget with all the wires that may have been bumped during the work, no love.

Replace silver relays (after cutting my hand fishing them out from behind the AC) LOVE!

I guess the D90 just got jealous.

Ron

You seem to go through those silver relays faster than a tank of gas.

FYI, if you ever want to bleed the brakes yourself, try Eezibleed, with the slight modification of using an air compressor for an air source rather than a tire. Seemed to do an OK job with mine.
