Short version:

So while looking on craigslist I found a 2006 cobalt this guy was parting out,went over there to harvest all the parts I could and we got talking about his wife's cobalt. He goes on to tell me its got engine light on and stalls constantly......I checked codes with my trusty elm 327 and torque app to find tps and map codes,so I asked how his donor ran before its chain broke and he said fine just noisy. So I went in my trunk to get some tools swapped throttle body and map sensor,fired it up,and it ran like crap for the three minute relearn process. So we waited,shut it off for a minute,fired it up and Bobs your uncle it ran great. So he took it for a quick spin and when he came back he was so excited he looked at me smiling and said........wait for it......................"holy shit man,take whatever you want for FREEEEEEE "! So I did! Now I got all the parts I could ever use just sitting pretty in my garage,and if I need something else its only a couple blocks up the road!

Last winter my grandfather and I shovelled out a guys car stuck in a snow bank at the bottom of his driveway. After he got out the only thing he said was "get off my property" and drove off.

Or at least smash one of his headlights with the shovel.
