Broken Thingamajig Leads to Cracked Whatchacallit in the Doohickey in Local Man's Engine

(Toledo, OH) Karl Enright first notice problems with his 1988 Dodge Shadow about "six months ago, give or take."

"I started hearing this kind of whickety-whackety noise, like you might hear if a handful of screws landed in your foo-foo drink maker," he recalled. "I figured it was either the transmission dumaflachi or the exhaust thingamabobber, but damned if it wasn't either one - it was some electronic gizmo."

A friend who is a backyard mechanic pointed Enright toward the eventual solution to his problem.

"He said to check out that doodad that controls the flow of the dojigger next to the fuel grapplegrommet," he said. "And I'll be damned! I would have bet five bucks it was the whatchamahooey on top of the injector whatsis. I swear, you could have knocked me over with a feather."

Kinda makes me feel stoopid(er) than I already are...
