Without the tools there, not much can be done!
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

2006 - Suzuki Gran Vitara (2.0 L fully equipped) Like this car so far except for trying to put on the seatbelt.
1988 - 190e - 2.3L - 172K miles (It now belongs to the exwife)
1999 - Chevy Blazer LS Fully Equiped - killed it June 2006
2001 - Honda Civic EX - 68K miles (sold June 2004)
1963 - 220S - Dual Carb 6 cyl. (sold)
1994 - Yamaha WaveRaider (fun to ride)

Before the wildfire took it away, I had a complete spare drivetrain for my 78 Blazer - engine/trans/transfer case/front and rear axles(housing and all) and driveshafts (two sets actually). As well as an extra door, hard top, and tailgate.

Now I only keep filters and fluids.
On some nights I still believe that a car with the fuel gauge on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio. - HST

At one time my VW bus had a whole extra longblock, carb gasket kit, plugs, wires, cap/rotor and a fan belt.
