Oh damn, yeah I know where you're coming from. Intermittent problems are always the worst because you can't diagnose them for crap.
Its like this problem I had with my car once. It used to stall on me completely randomly. Like, there was no way to relate the stalling to speed, gas, how hard the pedal is hit, what gear it is in...nothing. Completely random. I took it to 5 mechanics, but they all gave me BS answers or couldn't reproduce the problem. So one day it stalled on me on the highway, and I got this hunch that it was something stupid like a loose wire (more like I was determined not to pay for towing haha). So I looked all over the engine and underbody and guess what.....the wire of the power cable to the fuel pump had been cut, but the insulation was still intact! I guess after so many heat cycles the metal inside it just gave out. Go figure.
I bought a used truck onec that almost drove me crazy, it would run for awhile then stall out and die..It was just crazy, I thought it was ht efuel filter or fuel pump or junk in the tank. I replaced the pump and filter, didn't help much. Then i decided to pull the tank off and see if htere was a bunch of crud in it. You know what was wrong? Someone had reached in and stuck a knife blade hole in the filler cap to gas tank line....I guess it would work OK for a while till the gas got hot and started expanding and it would blow its pressure out though that line and then the truck would start running like crap again..
|damn sooo many headaches... only thing Ive ever had die on me can all be blamed on CRAPPY koolance -_- the first time I went water (3 years ago) I went with one of there prebuilt cases with a 360 rad up top and the built in res and pump and with 1/4" tubing and just a HORRIBLE noob mistake both a 7800GT and 7800GTX annihilated because the res on the koolance would crack with the slightest bit of movement -_- and me being the dumb a** that i was kept trying to fix it got a new res got a new pump changed the whole setup up top and still leaking and stupid koolance said it was user error there was no problem with there equipment... I vowed never to buy there crap again and then 6 months later i found OCN! best thing ever and I just started looking around and got educated but anyways thats my horror story obviously more crappy WC equipment than what happened to you guys but still a horror story and one more thing... KOOLANCE = DEVIL!|
It seems like I have to RMA something every month or two, and I hate RMA'ing..
