Every once in awhile you have a conversation with someone that leaves you shaking your head, right? Here is one from today. Me: I'd like to get my car serviced [make and model given, etc] Her: What do you need done? Me: My heater fan is failing intermittantly Her: Does it work at all? I need to know what parts to order Me: It acts like the motor is going out; like it has a bad winding on the rotor. If it doesn't start, it will after I get up to 60 mph or so and get air moving across the fan. But I guess it could be something in the speed control as well. [too much information!!!] Her: Well I need to know for sure so I know what to order Me: You mean you need to know what has failed? Her: Yes Me: Well I'm not sure. I was thinking maybe your mechanic could figure that out Her: Oh, good point.
