YAY! It's Fixed!




My beautiful red Dodge has been fixed! A resounding Thank-you to my marvelous husband, Steve, and our neighbor Art for finding the parts the "farmers" way. And to Jess for the suggestion of disconnecting the battery for a reset of the electronics! I have a new serpentine belt and exhaust and the gears are all fine! $200 bucks as apposed to some ridiculous amount at a service station! No dashboard lights flashing crazily at me! Oh what a great day!

Isn't that the best? I hate it when those dash lights blink at me. Never a good sign, lol.
Glad you got it fixed and you're back in bizness. Just in time for the snow!!

Whew-that's good. I tell ya-those service stations cost a fortune. Plus-I always wonder if they actually do what they say they do?? I've busted several over the years trying to tell me things that aren't right. Most have the decency to look embarrassed that a *gasp* female knows when they are trying to BS their way through. ;)

Wow, I just went through a similar thing with my Dodge. Our mechanic told me the fuel pump was going so when it stopped starting, I thought that was it. A six hundred dollar job. Not good at Christmastime. But maybe it was the battery and maybe it needed a tune-up? Hubby went online and did some reading. Took a chance and bought a new battery and stuff to do the tune-up. Squeezed the truck into the barn since it was downpouring and hubby fiddled. Yay! It worked! It's been running like a top! Spent a little over a hundred instead of six hundred! I love the Internet. And my husband...

Happy New Year!
