    Re: Best pranks to pull on someones car

    Swap over two spark plug leads - these MUST be opposite each other in the firing order - eg 18436572 for older Chev's or 1342 for a fourbanger. It should produce a loss of power without backfiring or whatever - still rev's smoothly too, so it can be a real pain to figure out.

    [edit] may not be a good idea if it has a catalytic converter as it'll cause it to run VERY hot.

    Re: Best pranks to pull on someones car

    My boss did this to me:

    Jack up the cars drive wheels, then put something under the car so
    that they are just above the ground and take the jack away.


    Lol, i put it in gear and nothing, I could see my tyres spinning in the reflection of the
    car next to me.

    Sugar in the gas tank. . .

    BB's on the air valves of the tires. Place one BB in the air valve screw top, screw into place. . .lets the air out very slowly. You can put 2 in for faster effect.

    You're supposed to be able to use bird shot or something like that in the gas tank to clog the fuel line.

    I suppose you could always disable the fuel pump. Car should run just long enough to pull all the fuel out of the line, then die.

    Re: Best pranks to pull on someones car

    If you are looking for something harmless, we used to get in my aunt's car and and turn everything on/up etc. Move the seat all the way up, turn the radio on as loud as possible, windshield wipers, a/c, blinkers etc...

    It requires having the keys and for full effect, do it first thing in the morning before they have went anywhere else.

    My cousin did get beat over the head with a shoe though, but his injuries were minor.

    If someone would do this to my car id kill him. It would certainly bring air into the system (Common Rail Engine) needing some intesive servicing afterwards

    Get a stink bomb (you know, one of the small glass ones) and carefully place it under the drivers footmat near the heel of the accelerator...

    As soon as he gets in the car and puts his feet down, the car (and him) will go from zero to 'smelly old wet kipper coated in stale eggs' in three seconds...

    A flippin great one that is...

    Filling his car with biodegradable packing peanuts would get the point across and not to any damage. Works even better if he's got something with a sunroof.
