Went to the dealer my buddy works at, had to order an actuautor spring
for the RR brake, damn thing broke with only 270,000 miles on
A black couple drive into the service dept with a S-10 Blazer 4X4. Its
experiencing rough idle, but still runs where it's not stalling.
The black couple tells the Service Rep ( a white dude ) its a 1989
Blazer. He goes over to look at it, they open the hood and there's a
carburator on the 2.8 engine.
Rep -This isn't an 89 .
Lady - Oh yes it is !
Rep - No its not, its older than that. If it was an 89 it would have a
throttle body on it not a carburator.
Lady - ( rather loudly says ) Mister, I been driving this M----- F---er
since 1989 !
The Rep walks away from her ready to fallover with laughter. Good
Wrenches are looking around cracking up.
The black guy from the parts department guy goes over and gets the vin #
off the Blazer. Looks under the hood and says " It does have a carb on
it "!? . Some of the Good Wrenches are shouting out, but keeping it
muffled different years they think the truck is.
A quick check of the vin # reveals the truck to be a 1984 not an 1989.
Parts Guy - Ma'am your truck is a 1984.
Lady - Uh uh, Its an 89, that's what the title says.
Parts Guy - I'm not arguing about that, but according to the VIN # that
truck is an 84.
An 89 would have fuel injection not a carburator.
The lady looks at the parts guy puzzled.
Harryface - " Sounds like your Title has a Typo in it ".
The ladys just looks at me.
One of the Good Wrenches came over after looking at the Blazer and
figures the Idle Control Solenoid is not working right. So the parts guy
looks up the part number in the computer.
The computer screen read :
Idle Control Solenoid - DISCONTINUED.
Parts Guy - Ma'am I'm sorry but the part has been discontinued.
Lady - What !?
Parts Guy - It's nolonger availble, your best bet would be to try some
of the local salvage yards.
Lady - Rolling her eyes, waving her hand in the air, she spins around on
her heel saying, " Alright ".
And with that her & her man get into the Blazer and drive out of the
Harryface - " Mister , Why is that M----- F---ing part discontinued !?
Its only 20 M----- F---ing years old ! ".
LOL - the boys had a good laugh today.
