Default Oh joy. What a fun week.

Just thought I'd give ya'll an update on this week'* adventures.

This week, the attention ***** is the avalanche.

Gauge cluster is failing...speedometer is inaccurate to levels of insanity, other gauges are going a little nuts. already got an appointment for them to gather the info to replace it, and then reschedule for the teardown...but should be done by the end of next week.

THENNN, I got a check engine light 2 days after that started...just came on after starting it for the first time in the morning...wasn't there the night before...

took it to advance to pull the codes...there were 4 codes...get this...ALL 4 oxygen sensors throwing codes. ohhhh, joy. so something is quite wrong apparently...consulting as many people as possible to shed some light on the situation.

Good thing is, the Bonne got tires this last week...4 new 225/60 GoodYear Assurance TripleTreds (Go figure, I buy tires for a car I don't drive or see ) The crappy coopers that were on it actually caused it to have two accidents in the snow. Minor damage for both...but I'm glad I can't see it in person right now...it'd just make my heart sink. :(

ANNND, might be heading back up to wisconsin for a week, sometime in the next couple weeks...might be fun, i get to see my car again probably fix the small damage from the ditches/minor accidents , and of course some nice preventative maintenance.

So, who else had a nice eventful week?

Sorry things aren't going well for you..

But.. I can pretty much say you'd better stop on over for dinner when you're in the area since you're gonna pass RIGHT ON BY.

I'm not driving up if I'm going. Don't have time, and don't have the money. Flying is cheaper in this situation.

But don't worry, when I finally do get a chance, theres alot of people on the visit list. :P
