BROKEN DOWN S15 - PAYING IT FORWARD

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone;

Last night going home along the Great Western Highway at Kingswood a very nice S15 had broken down at the lights in the left hand lane turning right.

No bugger would stop and give him a hand so I U-turned it down the road a bit and went back to see if I could help.

Pulled up and he had gotten it into a side street and it wouldn't fire no matter how much he cranked it.

It looked as if the fuel pump wasn't working so we tried bashing on the underside of the tank to see if we could get it to prime

No soap there ! So we pupped out the carpet to get to the inspection cover.

he wasn't carrying tools and luckily I had a full tool kit on me and we took off the inspection cover to find that there was fuel pouring out of the ring seal.

This hadn't been installed correctly at on stage and when we re-seated it and tightened it up it fired up just fine with no leaks.

He thanked me and was very grateful that I had even pulled up and proceed to tell me that in the past when he had broken down ( in a S14 ) he would cop abuse like "buy a Holden"

and so on with no one pulling up to help

Has anyone else gone through the coping "carism"

And lets hope he pays it forward to anyone else who brakes down

Great to see this type of thing still happening. Well done! Need to look out for each other.

Oh, and yes, every day in either of our cars I get carism. People treat you very differently in an X5.

I'm not this clever with cars, but I do try to stop and help people push their cars... It's all i'm good for really. 
And yeah, when you break down in a BMW, you are all alone. :D

Not always, for example; I've spun a bearing in my car. ZERO warning lights! Just a crazy tractor noise.

Winning? Right? Guys?🤣

Can't you just fix that on the side of the road? 🤔
