You ever have one of those days?
« on: October 10, 2011, 06:41:26 PM »
Started out two flats on the Buick. So I said heck with it and took the Volvo up town.

Get there and notice the heat gauge is running warm. Stopped at Advanced, figured the coolant had dropped from sitting.  Or else the belt was loose.

Popped the hood reservoir is empty. What the heck? So I went in and bought some coolant. Poured it in and watched it start dripping out the weep hole on the 18 month old water pump. The guy I bought it from had just replaced the timing belt and water pump a week before I bought it.

Sorry to hear that Rusty. When things like that happen all at once, I usually take a "punt" and wait for another day to fix something.

this may come as a shock to everyone but the waterpumps at your local autoparts store are most likely made in China and are nowear near as well made as they used to be.

ff that's why I order all of my parts. All we have around here is either AA or AZ. The local NAPA is almost as bad as they are since the new guy took over.

Ray I got the car home parked it and said later. I'm not taking a chance and  trying to fix anything! The way this week is starting god only knows what is next.

It's looking that way here as well. I have a new wireless printer my daughter finally talked me into trying to set up.

I'm on the 12th try software won't load and the front panel set up won't recognize the router.

I guess all of us wake up and then realize that "every thing we touch turns to chit"..I then just stop and rebuke it as a direct attack from satan himself and then things seem to start turning around.
