That shoe just might have fallen Saturday morning about 7:45.
That is the time I always start heading to the gym for my Saturday basketball games. I almost didn’t make it.
Remember back when carburetors would get “vapor lock” and stall out? That’s what this car tried to do. Only thing, with fuel injection, vapor lock is a thing of the past.
When I got to the gym, I gunned the engine, leaving a brown spot on the pavement. Along with liquid drops. Then I let the thing idle for several minutes before I shut it off.
Knock on wood, the car has performed just fine ever since.
I called the GM mechanic, and there was a very long pause on the phone. I’m guessing he couldn’t figure out what it was either.
If the damage is part of yet another recall, I’ll be okay, but I can’t afford to pay for an engine analysis. I’ll bet that cost is up over a hundred buck these days?
If this baby dies, I don’t know what I am going to do. 😦
