Because, really, there has to be a curse upon me. This morning I go to start my car. It doesn’t. So I try again, finally it catches. However, it does not sound good at all. It shudders during idle, but smoothes out if I give it some gas. The engine light is blinking, and the trac light is on. I pull out after letting it warm up, (it’s tempermental as it is), and realize that the car won’t go faster than 10 mph. Even if I really put on the gas. Not good. Not good at all.
I pull back in, shut it off, get out. *cough* Ugh, what is that smell? *groan* Something is seriously wrong.
Had to call in to work, (I’m sure that’ll get me written up), call a tow truck and go to the nearest dealership. All this just days after I pay the car off. I swear, they have a transmitter that makes the car blow up as soon as you don’t owe them money for it. Now I have to figure out how to get a vehicle while that one is in the shop. Borrow my dad’s little Ranger truck. Hopefully Christmas won’t be a total loss.
