There are a select few cars that I maintain for friends.  Occasionally one
of them sends me a new 'customer' (victim is more like it, hehehe) and the
first question I always ask is "Who worked on this last, and what did they
purport to do?"  That often leads me to the problem if I assume the
previous mechanic screwed up.  Jobs previous to that one are generally not
relevant, since the car had managed to run long enough for a new problem
to surface.
