Default I hate winter

Ranting here so give me a moment
My rear suspension comp is frozen and my rear shocks are leaking air. I have no rear susp and it sucks.
One of my */C pulleys failed. I had to drive a few days with out my */C that sucked. Even worse I had to install it at 8 pm in the dark and cold of a chicago winter.
My oil psi gauge is pegged at 12 psi because that took a dump sometime recently. I have the part but once again its to cold to freeze my a## off and installing it.
Anyway hope everyone'* winter is going betterr than mine

Seems to me your problems are cosmetic. Winter sucks but be happy you are not changing the water pump....... Between Christmas and New Years I changed the thermostat, 2 window regulators and something else I can't remember. I I felt lucky. When it keeps you from using the vehicle or strands you somewhere.... that is when it truly sucks....

It has been a very cold winter in Chicago and its not even half over. Sorry for not looking at the entire scenario. Lets both of us move to Southern Arizona where it is warm and cars don't rust.....
