Did you ever hear that the Prius does not have an engine? This was found out by a mechanic when she went to repair her car.Her response to a question asked by the repair worker was, Prius does not have a motor so there is no question of changing oils. Prius, however, is known to have an engine and that is why the loudest noise comes up when you are on the go.

Trying to vacuum gas out of a beetle

A man once tried to vacuum gas out of the VW beetle. Just after some time, he heard a loud explosion in the middle  and it was found out that he was trying to siphon gas out of his VW and thought that using a vacuum would definitely be a good idea. What a worst story by a mechanic.

The oil and the filter were changed and the fluids were well checked , the windshield was also washed. When the time came to ignite the engine, the  mechanic leaned in, twisted the key and the bay door of the car sprung open and the car rolled down into the ravine.

When taken to the shop, the owner asked when she had to fix the problems and the mechanic order today and now itself.
