We thought my car was dying. It wouldn't have been a particularly untimely death, after all, she's got 102,000 miles and has survived a serious accident and she's almost 9 years old. The a/c stopped working last fall and parking under the trees in our yard has sullied her complexion. However, she is paid for, and really rather reliable.
On Sunday she started kinda chugging and pulsing on our way to church. Then a scary engine warning light came on. We wondering if it was the transmission or the fuel injector. We wondered if the repairs would cost more than she's worth.
Thankfully, they don't. We just got a call from the mechanic and she just needed a little tune-up.
