Car Fire!

yay... more good luck.

went to re-ground my negative on my battery and i had this guy helpin me out. we grounded it fine and everything but as soon as we rescrewed it into the battery the engine bay started smokin everywhere. wtf! so we ripped off the battery cable real fast and what do you know. it made a ground out of my throttle cable again. so i opened the door and smoke was just pouring out. i looked under the dash through the smoke and it was effin on fire. so i told john to run inside and get some water. but i huffed and i puffed with all of my might and eventually sacrificed my hand to save my lude. 2nd degree burns on 2 fingers on my palm cuz i just cupped the fire to put it out. a trip to the hospital was well worth saving my ludes life though.

so we had to get the roached throttle cable out of there and i told him i couldnt reach it cuz there was melted plastic and insallation everywhere. so he gets under there and cuts my cruise control... retard. but we eventually get it off and then i see that he grounded the positive instead of the negative. grrrrrr!

im praying that it didnt melt through any of my wires under my dash, the fire was like right on that bundle of 50,000 wires. but, he gets to pay for a new throttle and cruise control cable.

just remember. never ever ever ground the wrong terminal, it means certain death.

Make him pay you to take it to someone else, and then throw acid in his face.

Hope it all works out for you. I had some idiot work on mine (My dad's idea) and it wasn't that bad, but my intake was barely hanging on, 2 coolant hoses were loose and spraying all over the engine bay, an injector was loose and gas was leaking. The real pisser offer was when he actually yelled at me for it not having any oil in it when he drained it all out, and then talked about how spunky the car was when it has no spunk until VTEC, and we all know that's where the H22 shines, cause the stock low end sucks. I told my dad if it went to a mechanic, he was paying. After the guy burned him with a bigass bill, all these problems, he wishes he woulda let me fix it. All that over a little EGR problem.

thanks. finally got somewhat of an estimate. 2800 just for parts. hehe not including the grand or more in labor costs we are gettin back.

they will prlly end up payin about 7000 but that has to pay for the lawyer and to get it fixed also. hopefully the extra 4000ish will pull me back out of the hole with my exhaust and header lol (hoping my parents let me have some of it).

and this whole fire incident hasnt been added to this at all so probably more then that even.
