So look at the alignment sheet and most of the 4 wheel alignment is out of spec. Some of it wildly different left to right. wtf? No wonder it pulls.

So put the car on a rack at my buddies shop and he sees the busted the arm for the headlight level adjustment. They used something like tar to hold it together. Weird as this arm is nowhere near the parts they would be adjusting. Then my buddy notices that the bushings in the newer control arms, with 3,000 miles on them, are melted. They must have put heat to the bolts. But not a little heat, enough to melt the bushings. So like $1,000 in repairs for the bushings. Which of course Firestone doesn't want to repair or pay for. Unreal.
I HATE relying on others to work on my stuff and this is why. Hacks that canít be trusted.

Firestones are terrible. In the last year or so I have redone their work over and over. It took them I think 4 or 5 times to do an alignment for my niece. After twice i moved stuff around till they just had to fine tune the toe, or it would never have gotten done. They gave her a free oil change. When they did it they lost the oil cap which pumped most of the oil out on her drive back to N. Carolina. Braindead losers.

Man am i pooped. I got called into work at 2:30 am friday morning and worked until 3:30 pm. I came home, ate and went to bed at 7. Got up at 4:30 again yesterday to work for 8hrs then wrenched on the BMW until 10:30 last night.

I got the injectors, valve cover and PCV swapped out on the BMW yesterday. Not a difficult job by any means. Of course, no good deed goes unpunished. The crankcase vent hose was half split already and i totally broke that off. Vac lines on the motor were all dry rotted so i had to replace all that crap too. Then, snap one of the vacuum barbs off the brake booster line because the vac hose is so hard/brittle. I got everything bandaged back together an ordered parts to replace those.

The good news: car runs great, no mas oil leak, I can go WOT again without putting the engine into limp mode, gas mileage.

move the green to the common terminal at the thermostat and the air handler. You'll lose the ability to run the fan manually at the stat but it'll solve the problem.
