Right, then they call it cheap Chinese crap. Lol. I have Chinese tools that out lasted snap on. But only because I maintain them. People that don't do preride maintenance and check, get what they asked for. 😂. Sounds mean, but it's true. Lol
Reminds me of my late step-father...He had a Ford Escort at the time and he called me at 12 midnight to come rescue him because his car had broken down coming home from work.

So I get there and go to turn his engine on and it ran, (very badly) for a couple of minutes and I then shut it down so not to cause any further damage than what i was hearing, (it was bad...lol)...I lifted the hood and checked his dipstick...It was bone dry and burnt crud on it.

I asked him when he had his last oil change done...which i already knew because i checked his oil change sticker first...lol.

He told me he had it done only about six months ago and it should be on the sticker...The sticker said it was over two years since his last oil change.

So then I asked him when was the last time he checked the oil and added to it...he tells me he never does this since it should "just be there"...lol.

He then informed me the car was Ok until now...lol....I informed him it was not OK any more...lol.

This man was clueless about proper maintenence of a motor vehicle...He just thought that they "should just work", like they were supposed to be "maintenence free"...lol.

Omg, he shouldn't have been driving. Lol. I say if you can't check fluids, you have no business being behind the wheel.
