My Saturday. Ugh!
Bad day today. Started out good though becuase I finished work at noon. I figured that I would hop on over to the used tool depot to find a new jack and some heavy stands. Well I didn't make it. I have a 94 GMC and it just died, dead in the middle of heavy traffic. So here I am on a Friday afternoon on one of the busiest streets in Halifax with my 4-ways on and the hood open in the fast lane to boot, waiting for a towtruck. Wow, it is amazing how stupid and ignorant some people are. I have never been honked at or swore at so much in my entire life. People would pull up right in behind me and sit there wondering why I wasn't moving. Hmm 4 ways on and the hood up. Doesn't take a rocket scientist (european anyway) to figure out that I am broken down. Anyway after an hour the tow truck shows up. He wanted 60 bucks to take me back over the bridge to the military auto club. I asked him how much to get me all the way home (which was about a half hour) he quoted 95. I have a garage at home so I figured I would take it back there. Anyway, did the trouble shooting and found that the fuel pump was not coming on but I had spark. I jumped power directly to the pump power supply from the pcm and I got it running. As it turns out the the fusible link to the PCM is blown so that is going to cost me about 5 or 6 bucks. Well, could have been worse (pump or even PCM). So that is the easy job tomorrow. I have to also change the master cylinder on my Bonneville as well as the swaybar links (I have had new ones sitting in the trunk for 2 months now). After that I have to change the fuel tank and the sway bar bushings on my 94 Cavalier because I am selling that car and it needs them for the safety. Man, I am going to be super busy tomorrow. Oh well I am rewarding myself with a superbowl party with the boys at my place. Hoowaa!!! Just letting off some steam here, need a few words of encouragement in the face of insurmountable odds.
