On this episode of Idle Talk Radio I have a substitute co-host with me in the studio. Ashley ran off to Montana for the week and let me in charge of everything. So I enlisted the help of our lead Mechanic Dan. Dan is our ASE Master Mechanic. He worked for 10 years at a Honda dealership before he came to work here at the shop. It was his first time on the radio and he was a little nervous.

We talk about the Magnesium shortage that is effecting aluminum production and the scarcity of replacement auto parts. Pennsylvania is also flirting with changing the emissions program and we unpack it a little. We get a call about shaking issues in a 2006 Honda CRV, recalibrating a compass in a instrument cluster or mirror, and the extreme loads charging systems have on the battery and alternator.
