welll shit...okay...so now that car#1 situation has been taken car of it's time to return to making car#2 at least safe to drive...we still had just enough money to buy some ball joints and rent the tool but..nope...A its to late for the tires to give any more life as there is a wire showing.. and B there is zero way this removal tool will work for this car..If the car parts places around here had a different tool then it would be okay but I can find no way of making this tool work, nor can a friend of mine. Seems the only way is to remove the entire steering knuckle and use the tool up side down to push out the joint. So, right now what we have is a car that we are paying $460 a month for that has had one after another issues in a way that is made it not possible to dump high maintenance costs into and its reached the point of being no longer drive able.

What has gone out so far is...water pump, steering fluid high pressure lines, steering rack and pinion, plugs, wires, purge valve, EVAP control, and a spark module.

it requires still, breaks all around, rear rotors, tires, upper ball joints, lower ball joints, the control arm joints.

The rims leak at some small cracks at the inner wells where someone has ran each of the rims over curbs, there is a engine temperature sensor code and the shocks are shot to the point that the thing bounces around like trying to walk on a 1970's water bed and it uses more oil than it should.

Minimally I need upper ball joints and two used tires but the shop cost on uppers is beyond what we have right now and I am sure they will not let you drive away with wires poking out from the tires.

For now its double duty on car sharing which equals not as much sleep as we need since for now we work different shits.
Going to call up the buy here pay here rape you place and see what they would do if we offer to sign the title back to them and walk but..we still own $6,000

any ideas?

This is my first attempt at blogging and replaces my original web site that has been online since...a long time ago. If you came looking for The Dragon BathHouse and Cafe, this is it's replacement. There will be lots do do here and if you are not carefull you will learn all about me. I might learn about me as well, along with metting and/or learning about you and that's the whole point isn't it ?
