Memories of my truck
I’ve had tons of interesting and stressful experiences with my truck. I first got my truck when I was 15 years old. It is a 05 Toyota tundra. The memories I’m going to write about will be the memories of my truck breaking down. My truck was in need of a new water pump so one day me and my mechanic went to his shop with my truck to put the new one on. First we put the truck on the lift and popped the head and began taking out the radiator and drained all the coolant from the radiator. Then we had to take of the fan and the timing covers off to get to the water pump. Once we got to the water pump we removed it and put the new one on. Then my mechanic and I finished putting all the parts to my truck back together. After that we needed to refill the cooling system in my truck so we put all the coolant and water back in the radiator. Finally we got to the last thing to do and that was to get all the air out of my cooling system but when we were letting the truck run and getting it to full temperature to make sure everything was working properly it has shut down all of sudden and would not start back up. We sat there the rest of the day trying to figure out why and could not figure it out so I left the truck at the shop for my mechanic to figure out what was wrong. Two days later he gave my mom a call and told her my ECM was blown so of course we ordered a new that day. When the new one came in we programed it to my truck and put it in and it working the truck…

For example, “Honda's service bulletin says that this internal difference means that "no alternatives are recommended ... use of the Bridgestone Potenza S02 Pole Position or Bridgestone S02 can adversely affect the handling" of the S2000.” (Hilton) This shows that even a small Japanese car like an S2000 has better handling when turning, control, etc. than a muscle car. This is because the S2000 is more lighter than a muscle car, which is heavier. That makes it harder for the car to turn better,…
