Default Finally got the car started and running...

... only for a little while though. I was so anxious in wondering how this car sounds that I just made some time to go in the garage and work on some things myself. I put on the belt for the altenator to see if the car really needed a starter. I really wont know to muck still until tomorrow when I try to start the car again. I jumped the car and it started fine with no scratching. I took the car around the block and even though the other belt isnt on, the car runs smooth. Transmission even shifts smoother than the white car I had. I cant wait to find me another bekt to feel the */c. Horn works, lights all work, sunroof work, HUD is nice, seats work(except the recline back) turn signals, wipers and the wiper washers work. 2005 will be a nice year for me with the vehicle.

Later on when my mind warms up, I will go to Auto Zone and find a belt. This will be the hard part though. Trying to find that one belt thats short enough to fit without dropping down to the compressor.

I just thought about this. Since I have my car runnin temparary, when I am able to get my compressor I can drive my car to the shop and get it fixed then instead of wasting money for a tow. Just excited when I thought that and shared it.
