WHY IS EVERYTHING BREAKING AT THE SAME TIME?!?!?!?

This week has been absolutely horrible on my family's cars. First My mom is complaining about her 2000 nissan quest. Keep in mind it has 210k mi and doesn't owe anyone a thing. It starts to sputter and run really rough and eventually dies and wont start. It is on the shop right now because I have a normal 40hr. work schedule and also take night classes several days of the week.

My fiance's Infiniti G20 has a belt making a hell of a noise and I think there might be a pump of some sort going bad also judging by the sound.

Next, I just get finished putting all new shocks, brakes, and bearings on the 3rd gen vert and the next morning I am driving it to work and get to the end of my street and the harness shorts out filling the interoir with smoke. Also the starter almost fell off.!! Whoever intalled it only put 1 nut on it and it was very loose and causing it to not want to engage to start. So I break the Saab out of the garage.

I wasn't planning on driving it until I fixed the oil leak from the timing cover, but it is a manageable leak and I had to get to work. I drive it for 2 days and then tues (yesterday) night coming home from school, I get on the highway and am accelerating at a pretty normal rate. I shift into fifth gear and there wasn't anyone in front of me so I started accelerating to maybe 80 and all of a sudden I am bouncing off of fuel cut and hear that noise you never want to hear from the transmission. I coast to the next off ramp and assess the damage. The transmission is shot. I was able to limp it home in fourth gear, but I can hear all the pieces of fifth rattling around. I know it is an unreliable saab, but I love the car and really want to get it fixed, but I am not sure of my current financial situation at the moment.

I am borrowing Aaron's volvo wagon for the time being until I can get another car. It will not be anything but a toyota product. There is one that I am seriously looking at though and If I can get the loan approved before the dragon, I will be there in it...

Yep Ben blew up his GTS 2zz@over 9000=Fail, then he caught his alltrac's brakes on fire. My coolant neck is leaking like a stuck pig, so we feel your pain. I think our cars are allergic to the dragon.

That's why Volvo is being saved and Saab isn't. :)

Say what you want about Volvo, but they're indestructible.


I'm on another "find a Celica" day.


Found me a 76 GT liftback for $1,950 with no rust....
