I've got quite a few too... usually fixing other peoples problems.

most recently a guy replaced just about everything else on his car... every sensor every module EXCEPT for the fuel pump which was buzzing like crazy.

finally replaced it for him because he needed it and imagine that... it ran fine.

I will say I hate when people ask me to do stuff for them at home because they don't want to pay me labor. they get a big no.
