Weirdest Car Problems
So I was talking to a friend tonight about first cars, and then brought up the issues I had, and made me curious to see if 1)anyone knew what this issue was, and 2)what everyone else'* weirdest issues have been.
My first car was a '92 Volvo body, but whoever had it before had rigged it up pretty badly...the alternator didn't match ANY alternator from the '90-'94 Volvo'* I'd tried, and the fuel pump relay was the '91 relay. The fuel pump itself was a '93 pump, and the water pump was a match for the '92. I don't know how he managed to mess with it that much. My granddad had come into it, and given the car to me when he passed on. I spent 4 months and almost all my graduation money trying to fix this car'* fuel issue and never could.
The weird part?
It got to a point where if I turned the key to "on", the odometer would start adding miles at an alarming rate. I'm talking, spinning numbers so that within a minute it was 50-75 miles above where it started at.
So even though I long since traded that piece for the Bonneville, I really am curious...why the heck was it doing that?! Anyone have an idea?
