I replaced my car's coolant thermostat the other day, once it's installed you turn a little plastic screw to bleed out air in the system. The thermostat is pretty far down in the engine bay so I used a long and somewhat sharp screw driver - gave the thing a bad turn and somehow punctured the plastic (and hollow) screw - causing coolant to trickle out. Luckily it was the same screw as the previous thermostat so it was quick to swap out, but it was a panicky three seconds before it occurred to me

did this on a power steering pump a few weeks ago. surprisingly the bolt was just some 10mm pack at NAPA. if you ever need help with a problem like this find the oldest fattest employee and talk to him, you'll either have your solution in 2 minutes or know to leave forever

That Facebook mom meme doesn't make sense. Shouldn't it say "it becomes righty loosey"
