Dad - the car is making a funny noise


Friend sent me a pic, their 19 year old daughter came home and said there’s a funny noise coming from the car

Going outside in the dark to see what the fuss was, he gets a torch out to inspect closer

Millennials ......!!....and punctures

My mate’s wife came through the door one night soaking wet having walked home explaining that the camshaft had gone in her car and it was lying dead in the middle of the road a half a mile away. My mate jumped in his car with a tow rope planning to get it dragged home or at least into a lay-by. When he got there he discovered it had a flat tyre.


Someone should make an app that changes a wheel?

“Download the future of breakdown”

Only works if you know you have a problem tho. Maybe this is why they fit tyre pressure sensors to some cars now..... :unsure:

I used a self inflating kit on wifes newish car. It can't then be repaired as chemicals in gunk stop the patch sticking. What's annoying is that the hole was too big for the gunk so I had put a string in it anyway. New tyre Thankyou. Grrrr.
Whenever I've had a car with one of those I buy a space saver spare straight away. Had too many frustrations with glue bottles :mad:

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
