Wink I have a story to tell...

Today, I was driving from a meeting back to my office during the day in the afternoon. I had the A/C running and cruising and all of a sudden, the engine cuts out right in the middle of the road.

Feeling super embarrassed infront of my co-worker who went to the meeting with me, i got out of the car to open the hood so I can let the heat out.

Cranked and cranked for a bit and then I let it sit for 10-15 minutes. 15 minutes later, the car starts and we head back.


The problem we already know -- the crank shaft sensor! Why have I not changed it out yet? Because I ordered it from California and I have to wait a good 7-10 days for it to come. I saved a lot of money like this, but I have to deal with this!

Anyways, for those people who are having similar problems... go to the mechanic now and get it fixed!!!!!!

Yeah. Those days when you could buy something on ebay and have it delivered to your doorsteps in 3-4 days are gone. Now PayPal is using echecks, that take 4 days to clear.
Thank you hackers.
BTW was she pretty?

I'm perplexed. Whenever I order parts from Autohausaz they come in a few days and that's with free ground shipping. True, I'm just one state away, but if ordered with 2 day you have it in 2 days...and if that shipping charge plus the part is close to the dealer charge, then just buy it at the dealer and fix it the same day.

How much did you save by finding a deal in CA? Was it worth the aggravation and embarrassment of your car continually dying?

Hope you get it fixed soon so you can ...

Take care and enjoy the ride,
