The discussion came about after jamesbeat posted a sad story concerning the intersection of the following:
- gall bladder
- timing belt
- Volvo V70
I was planning on changing my timing belt last month, bought the kit and and all the tools I needed.
I asked for help on the forum, read all the tutorials, and watched videos for hours until I was confident I could do it.Then, a couple of days before I was planning on changing it, my gallbladder exploded and put me on the hospital
The doctors told me that I had to wait a month before picking up anything over 15lbs or doing anything strenuous, so I marked the calendar for the second week in November.Well, wouldn’t you know it, I was driving to work on Monday and the belt snapped and took out the engine I’m junking the car either tomorrow or Sunday, and in addition to syphoning out the full tank of gas, I want to pull as much valuable stuff off it as possible.I’m not going to have long to do it, and I am still not allowed to exert myself too much.
What are some small and easy but valuable things I could take off the car?
I’m thinkg the MAF might be a good start, but other than that, I just don’t know what’s worth taking.
