So I went out to the B today. Turned the thingamabob and the doohicky made a funny noise then the thingamajig stopped working. I lifted the whichamacallit and looked at the dohicky and it looked fine. But I did notice the doodat looked a little funny. Now I am no... you know who, but I would say the doohicky is not working. But it could be caused by the thingamajig smelling funny. I tried to take a pic but I could not get the whatisit to work either, so I thought I would just post here. So what do you think the problem is? Do you think maybe the whatnot might have caused the thingamajig to stop working?

Thought a bit of humor would be fun. Have a great day.

Did you check the polarity of the driver side widget? If it's fitted the wrong way round they can cause serious problems for a slightly loose dohicky! smileys with beer

Mud in the dust valve will do that everytime. And a seized muffler bearing will lock up everything.

Bad Flux Capacitors... Get that several sixteenths wrench and replace them. I hate when that happens!

Of course it could also be the infamous Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator.

Call Marvin! He can help....
