Default Had to be towed home today...

We went out in the 94 today, she was a little hesitant starting but we went to the store and when we came out she wouldn't start at all. The starter went out. We tried tapping it with a hammer to get it to crank long enough so we could get her home but NOOOOOOO, she was being stubborn. we had to have her towed (we are in so good with the tow guys that they know where we live and give us a discount for frequent use )

We sent the tow guy to the house and we went to parts store for starter. We passed the tow guy on our road and I paid him the usual $25 fee. She is all fixed and starts like she should. It was a very interesting day At least it was nice and breezy out so it wasn't so bad.

She'* up and running smoothly again. $65 for the starter and $25 for the tow, the relief of having her fixed....priceless!

Sorry to hear about the troubles, at least you got it repaired quickly.

$65, not bad for a new starter either.

Isn't that the second starter in the 94 this year? Or am I thinking of something else? Glad it turned out ok.

I've replaced so much on the 94 I can't keep it all straight myself. I thought so too but Jeff says no. Who knows?? He drives it and I pay for the repairs....Something is messed up with this picture
