Default MY CHRISTMAS PRESENT

I was driving my 93 SSEi to the train station for another day of work. She started to sputter while idling at a red light. When it turned green, I gave her gas and she was fartin' and tootin' like a Diesel VW Bug. Like WTF. I het to the station, and rev up to 4000RPM. CLOUD OF SMOKE FROM THE EXHAUST. What a nice start to the day.
After a long, crappy day of work, I go back to my car and try to start it. Not happening. I try again..... nada... So this time i kept her cranked and.... CLING! WTF.
I had her towed to the mechanic. I just got a call informing me that the CLING noise was my Starter Housing SPLIT IN TWO. another WTF. Still awaiting word of what else is wrong with it, after they get it started up.
Looks like my B-Ville is on life support...... and I have an inkling to pull the plug.
