I am so stressed right now!
I do not need this right now.
Ive been driving my husband's truck all weekend to work because he has remote start and it's been really cold. Sunday night I went to put gas in it before heading home and as soon as I pulled into the parking lot at my apartment building, the battery gauge on the dash maxed out and the battery light came on. The truck then died. Luckily I was able to roll into it into a parking space before it completely died.
The next day I called road side assistance to have it towed over to my mechanic.
I was freaking out the entire time because that meant Hubster had to take my truck to work since he worked over a hour away and I had to get the truck fixed. So I was trying to get it fixed fast and oh, did I mention,
This happened during finals!!!!!!!!!!!
Cosmo was not amused while waiting for the tow truck.
Talk about majorly stressed. I ended up spending the night at my brother-in-law's house because I was able to use one of their vehicles. I went to my final and went back to my brother-in-law's house. The mechanic finally called me around 9 pm saying that my alternator blew and needed replaced as well as a bunch of electrical wires and gauges. $270 later and I had my truck back. I followed my sister-in-law home because she took me over to get my truck and when I was four blocks away from her house, my truck lost complete power....AGAIN!!!!!
Are you fucking kidding me!
I called my mechanic...again and told him what happened, so I had to call road side assistance...again and have it towed back. Thank goodness it's free!!
It turned out the alternator spiked for some reason and after resetting a bunch of crap, my truck is now in working order....another $80 down the hole.
So of course it's been one stressed out couple of weeks for me and dealing with auto shit. Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
