Thunk Thunk Thunk

January 31st, 2011 at 06:27 am

That is the sound my car is making. It is coming from the engine. There is also some metal shavings in my oil. This is not good. Dropped it off this morning and I am just waiting for the repair shop to call me to tell me it needs a new engine. My ex is looking for a used one from a junkyard somewhere. I can't afford a new one and my parents are all tapped out. they are giving me $1400 toward it...that would just about cover finding a used one and having it put in.

Yes this is the same car that I just put a transmission in. If I had known that the engine was going to crap out, I wouldn't have put the new transmission in. I would have traded it in. Too late know. I have too much invested in the car now. But I will never buy a car from North Georgia Ford in Blue Ridge GA again.

    Is it under warranty? If it is, maybe they should be worrying about fixing it.

    The brand new transimission is under warranty. Unfortunetly, this is the engine.

    That is awful about your car, It is unfortunate that, it is the engine. I know that you were saying upthread that you don't spend an extravagent amt. of money. I enjoy yr. blog, and can see how hard you are trying w/ money, and finances. The economy is still hard for many, many people... I hope that you are able to fix yr. car . Hang in there...You can tell yourself, that you are trying. And, it isn't easy financially, being a single Mom.
