The storm is not over yet and more surprises might still be in store. I’m thinking positive vibes here, but I’m preparing. I got “The Pony” back just a little while ago and there are pros and cons. Of course I’m glad to have her back, but she is not fully well yet.
The pro is that she won’t stall unexpectedly anymore and therefore there won’t be any loss of power steering or power brakes. Definitely a plus as I don’t have to worry being caught of guard which is usually in those moments when you need your brakes and steering the most.
The con is that she idles too high now, but only if you run it with the air on. Yeah go figure that one and at the moment “The Pony” has turned into a “Mystery Mare”. So if you have any idea as to why this might be happening, please let me in on the secret. Thank you kindly 😉
She got three new parts and at roughly $250 later, paid so far, my mechanic didn’t even charge me for the labor yet. Once she is a 100% and I’m happy with her, we will look at taking care of that he said. I’m still impressed with his service and the kindness and care I have found in his work ethic. He also put $20 in the tank and never even charged me. Wow…almost hard to believe. In the meantime I will drive her for a few days until my next days off and see if the computer will re-learn (it is currently in a learning/reset mode) how to proper….well, how to properly behave I guess. Fingers crossed once more.
