I had a 1968 MGC (experimental model, Austin Healy 3000 6cyl engine put into a small MGB body) The car was fast, very fast. Had it opened up to 135mph one time.
I started having some engine missing problems. This engine had carburetors that you had to add a little oil to. I tried to diagnose the problem myself, but couldnt find the problem.
I went over to the local garage that had a very reputable mechanic. He kept the car for a day and when I picked it up, he said he could not find any problem. No reason the car should not be running fine.
Then I took the car to the MG dealership. They gave me a loaner and kept my MG for a week. They ran all kind of diagnostic tests, took the carburetors apart, ran different diagnostic tests. End result, he told me that there is no reason for the car to be acting painfully. But I told him, it just doesnt run right, the car stalls and sometimes its almost impossible to get it going first thing in the morning. He didnt believe me.
Six months later, still having to deal with the problems of what I knew was a damaged car, I went to see a friend who recently opened up a repair shop. He looked at the car, drove it for a couple of minutes, came back to the shop... Opened the hood, went to the carburetor assembly and picked up a hose that clearly had a leak in it.
He got the part from the shelf, performed the procedure and the car is as good as new!!! And it took so long and all those different mechanics couldnt find a thing.
Whats this doing here on Spine-Health ?
There are good and bad in every profession. There are some that can identify and isolate a problem quickly. Then there are some that just cant seem to find the problem. We can only wish, we go to the person who knows how to diagnose.
