Dodge Neon Crushed By Mud Trucks
Crazy weekend at the Redneck Yacht Club. An older body style ford slings some mud up into the back of the Dodge Neon. A custom Chevy on tractor tires comes by and wants to take part in the action. He parks parallel to the neon cuts the wheel and runs it over with the left front tire. Before the forklift could take it away another custom Chevy Silverado truck on tractor tires gets into the mix and pulls both of the front wheels up onto the neon.

Noisy Power Steering and Heavy Steering Wheel Problem - Fixed
When my Freelander2's power steering system started making a noise and the steering became heavy I checked the oil-level, which was ok . . . but the oil itself was in poor condition. I removed the old reservoir and cleaned it using the wife's toothbrush, granddad's pipe cleaners and some petrol - this was when I discovered the filter was so clogged that petrol couldn't pass through the filter. The filter cleaned up well, but I could see more sediment hiding in hard-to-reach places. I re-fitted the old reservoir, topped up the oil, and then ran around in the car for a few days (noting that the power steering was now working perfectly). This allowed the original reservoir's finer-screen filter to extract all the fines from the system. I purchased a new reservoir/filter, attached it's outlet pipe (large pipe on the side), and the old reservoir's inlet pipe (small central pipe) to the hoses and worked the steering wheel to flush the old oil into the old reservoir. Fresh oil was poured into the new reservoir and the old oil was removed from the old reservoir via a hand pump. This was repeated until the oil being hand-pumped from the old reservoir was clean - after about 1 litre of fresh oil had been poured into the new reservoir. In retrospect: The 'flushing' operation could have been done without cleaning the old reservoir's filter. Its not mounted too firmly in the reservoir so could easily be broken-away using a large screwdriver.
