In todays world you'd be hard pressed to find the spark plugs let alone if it even had one!
My dw has a hard enough time just PUTTING air in a tire much less overhaulin the engine to do it!
Example) the other day she says her tire light was on so she pulled up to the air hose in the shop and looks at all four tires and makes an educated decision on which one was infact LOW.
she then procedes to fill the one up that to the best of her knowledge looked low.
Hmmmm ............ she texts me later and writs I quote. "Tire light came on so I filled up the low tire but the lights still on please check it tonight"
So I get her tire gauge out of the ds door pocket and start from ds front 38
Ds rear 36 Ps rear 25 and finally Ps front 68
you get the point
