Default The Ford Dictionary of Mechanical words

Have you heard a silly mechanical word, term or phrase meaning mostly nothing but complete nonsense usage of the English language.
Any definitions are welcome just not seriously believable ones.
This collection isn't meant to be taken seriously but instead shed humorous feelings about autos and their subjugations.
