I had to look it up. But apparently it's illegal to work on your own cars in Sacramento in your own garage...

Yeah I would be screwed...

Saved about $2500 doing my valve cover and oil filter gaskets on the N55 motor...

I only broke 3 things that is glueable, and lost 1 socket by dropping it into a a bottomless pit in the engine bay... $7 replacement, really sad e12 socket is going to be lonely there.

Look how clean my engine is now :) Can't do it in Sacramento...

Is it a major repair if the engine stays IN the car? LOL.

Do it with the garage door closed and no one will know. Maybe that is the point of the ordinance.
