Default so check the day i had yesterday

so i descided to do a tune up on my truck since it was running very poorly. took it to a friends shop because my CEL kept coming on and going off. so i was like wtf.

so i had to change my 2 front tires, they were hammered on the inside tread. uopn attempting to do this, got the passenger side done just fine. got to the drivers side at 11pm. heres where the fun started. got 3 wheel lugs off, broke the 4th. so im liek great. then tried to get the 5th off and the stud started slipping in the hub before i could get the lug nut off.

so now i had to torch off the lug nut and take the hub off replacing 3 studs that got broken or hurt the ordeal. this was just the start of things.

got to the tune up and checked out the CEL and all. motors running insanely lean lacking fuel. the egr selenoid is pulling a constant vacuum to the egr causing my idle to drop and run very rough and almost die. then my fuel pressure is down so the fuel pump is on its way out.

so all in all i had to spend about $400 just in parts. got half of it done by 1am last night and im going later on to finish the rest of it. which sucks because i just filled my gas tank. 16 gallons FTL.
