So the tranny issue with my truck stopped once I got home and turned it off overnight. Looking online, it's a known issue and there's a known fix but it's hard to get it done before it completely chits the bed. The interim fix is to turn it off and turn it on again. I took it in for my appointment today at the dealer. Service writer says "there's no codes. I can't do anything without an error code." Told him it's a known issue, there was a recall including transmissions made up till December of 2016. I don't know the build date of my 2017 truck but there's a good chance there's a 2016 66RFE underneath it. He said I'll see if we can find anything but until there's a code, there's nothing to fix.

I hate this truck. And every automatic transmission I've ever owned.

Don't read this because it's TMI. I am warning you: Stomach cramps and bowel issues this morning.

I am down to 183.6 lbs. down from 200 in just three months ago! Gonna add about 2-3l bs. by tomorrow, but I'll still take it. Ideal weight for me, according to my endocrinologist is 178 lbs.

That's, coincidently, what I weighed 30-35 years ago when I was in top physical condition from riding and swimming. Planned on 1,000 yds. in the pool today, but I am not sure if I'll make it by like 5pm.

Yesterday I saw some Chick-fil-a' sauce of some sort come off the truck at Wally World. I'd like to see a Chick-fil-a' in my town. The nearest one is about an hour away.

Fiddy NINE!

GM sucks! I will never buy a GM product again in my life. I'm really sour on them.

Spent a week in MI at a GM plant (Dearborn, MI) to work with them on grinding stones and finishing stones for their transmissions. After the gears were cut, the grinding stones and finishing stones would finish them to tolerance. It was a cluster F to try to get answers and do any development for improvement.

While in the area we also dropped in on Detroit Diesel, again to do some product development. Work on improving the honing of engine block cylinders. Another cluster F.

The whole UAW thing was an impediment to get anything done, they just wanted to keep the status quo. Any intervention or process/product development was a hindrance.

In that lifetime, working on grinding, honing and finishing stones... Briggs & Stratton plant in S. Carolina was my favorite place to visit. They were open to collaborate for process improvement, the folks were super nice (southern hospitality) and I've fallen in love with good Carolina BBQ (vinegar based stuff).

I got through this sentence and was like WTF. Tranny issues mean something different here in California.

Done with work for the day. Watching some tv and finishing morning coffee.

Off to the club soon for a cigar and hope to enjoy Newcastle v Leeds.

No tranny issues here. Just a swollen nut.

I missed this yesterday, thanks for checking.

Yom Kippur fast knocked me out good. Missing my usual three cups of coffee a day led to a massive headache all day...

I'm done for the day, too...

Went to the gym, took a shower and then I had to go to the dog park for an hour... I'm exhausted!

Managed to cook some chikens and make a nice cobb salad. Cigar and a beer is quite possible.

Haven’t had much time do you check in. Been doing hospital shuffle. Wanted to say thanks for the well wishes and prayers. I’m not much for praying myself as I figure my God doesn’t know me anything but they are appreciated.

More tests today both spinal tap and MRI. So far it’s all in my head so yes it could be a Tomah!

Enjoy your Saturday gents!

I have had many GM’s over the years - not the best of vehicles.

The bone I pick with them today is on the electric vehicle front. They produced the self igniting Bolt. Now they warn customer not to charge their cars indoors cause they may burn down the house. Won’t stand behind it - they blame LG.

And rather than make the fast, cheap EV that people want, they give us the Bolt. And in a few years EVs that no one can afford. They are a bunch of foul ups.

At least Ford is in the game. The Lighting will rock the industry, and at a good price.

Going through a Danm-like experience.

Refridge not working right again. Had to call for a service technician on Tuesday. Guy came out, confirmed that the temperatures weren’t right and diagnosed that the compressor was going bad. He didn’t have the part in his van but they had it in the warehouse. Earliest we could schedule the 3-hour repair was Thursday. Found out that for the LG brand that we have, the compressor is the most common repair issue. About a 3-year life expectancy. Our refridge is roughly 3-1/2 years old.

Anyway, another tech came out on Thursday morning to perform the repair. Took about 2-1/2 hours. Tech said to let the refridge stand for 24 hours before putting everything back in. Friday rolled around and we refilled it. Everything seemed fine. Ice-maker made ice again and the freezer kept the frozen stuff frozen. Then last night we pulled out some ice cream and noticed that it was a bit soft. Initially thought I left it out too long before scooping it but checked the other frozen items and they definitely didn’t feel frozen frozen.

Moved the bulk of the frozen items into our garage refridge. Told my wife to just let it sit and we’d see how things were in the morning.

Got up and unfortunately the freezer wasn’t any colder. Called the Sears Repair Center to place another repair request. Monday between 1 and 5 is the earliest.

Luckily we bought the extended warranty so nothing out of our pockets but man, sure is a PITA.

I got a Whirlpool double door type... freezer on one side, fridge on the other, ice and water dispensers...

21 years old. Replaced the solenoid on it 2 times. Still working.

When it sh-ts the bed, I'm just going to replace everything in the kitchen. Stove, fridge, dishwasher (which we never use) and microwave. Fuggit.

We bought a Samsung refrigerator several months ago. The ice-maker was causing all sorts of problems. Had the repair service out twice and they replaced it twice. Still had problems and when we checked it out, the problems were known. Finally had Samsung come out and they replaced the whole ice maker with a beefed up substitute and it solved the problem. Get LG involved directly. Just sayin'...

Why get LG involved for a Samsung?

When we moved into our house in ‘87, my in-laws bought a Kenmore refridge from Sears for us. Nothing fancy, top freezer. Solid as a rock. Maybe 1 service call in the 23 years we had it. Then, with the big push (…and rebates…) to replace old energy suckers with Energy Efficient appliances in 2010-ish, we bought another Kenmore. At least one service call within the first 5 years. Then the slide rack in the freezer started breaking down, eventually leading to its removal.

We did a major renovation in ‘16 and the wifey didn’t think the white refrigerator “fit the look” of her new kitchen. Sprung for the fancy stainless 3-door LG with water and ice dispensers. Two, soon to be 3 service calls in less than 4 years. Wife is already looking at a new refridge…but this time going back to an American brand (…even if they’re not really made by or in the USA…).

We had a KitchenAid that lasted 12 years. Compressor went out and they told us it wasn't worth replacing for $800 due to the age. My wife bought into that, so we got a new one. This happened like 2 months after I spent $400 replacing the shelves and bins and such that had wear and tear. I thought I was making an investment and would have re-upped if anything reparable went wrong. So, we spent $1,700 on a new refrigerator that my wife HATES. Serves her right!
