Wish I could enjoy the love, but I still flash on the two '74s that were mechanically junk (the seats were great). My sister's 80ish Volvo was a keeper though and she had it for around 14 years, and she's hard on cars. I suppose I'm not the only one carrying around a 40 year old car grudge though.
Moving is kind of fun and it's a great way to get rid of a lot of junk. CHBA anyone?
(Did I mention we're looking at a couple of houses later this week? )
You still have a couple of days.
That's a lifetime in here.
Cool, so I was right back in 2010. Being bearded, I really prefer "whisker shorts" though.Tin whiskers has been a pet theory of mine for a while, but I thought the NASA study dismissed it as a cause of SUA.
As per the NHTSA review..... They mention "a particular kind of resistive short circuit" Page 8 executive overview.
Those would be the tin whiskers. Tin whiskers are a potential cause of the transient failures that are described in the report to cause throttle opening errors of about 5%, which are well within the ability of the brakes to stop the vehicle, they are also potentially to blame for many of the failsafe (limp-in) modes that occur.
