This is the first of a new series of rolling threads where we talk about something we know nothing about but as if we’re actually an expert on the subject.
The rules of these threads are as follows:
- If you know about the thing don’t come in the thread and talk about it
- Nobody is allowed to make that joke about “how is this different from any other thread?”
- Have fun, respect yourselves and your fellow community members
Anyway, now we can start talking about cars as if we’re experts about them (providing you’re someone who knows nothing about cars)

Turns out they’re basically maintained in the same way
Big stuff, big charging, crazy pistons, nutty pistons.
I got someone a Haynes Manual for babies once
Looks like the carbonara isn’t putting charge in the starter motor.
