the end is near
so in the chronicles of my car problems- that for one i am SICK of talking about. the end is near for my car...
things that have happened this week:
car turning off occasionally when stopped at stop lights, stop signs, etc.
car being fixed... new struts and spring. it is on all fours now!!!
new drivers side mirror
things were going great for the previous 2 days after getting it fixed. no car turning off. i thought i was in the clear.
things that happened TODAY
someone whacked off my new driver's side mirror AGAIN.
car barely making it home.... turned off about 5 times at various stopping points. i was praying all the way home that there was going to be no stopped traffic on the freeway or else i would have been making the traffic jam.
i don't know what to do. since i just got my car semi-fixed i can't really afford to do anything until next month to get it fixed.
i tried to look into the show pimp my ride. haha. but you can only be between the ages of 18-22.... rediculous!
my friends, it's time to improvise & think about bowling tomorrow night for the celebration of my b-day!
yes, that is what i am excited about.

My car does the same thing, it shuts off if I'm stuck in traffic. It always starts back up, but if the traffic is really bad it gets to the point where it won't shift and just wants to shut off every three seconds. My car does it because the fuel injectors are whack. If I keep the tank full with mid-grade gas it does it less frequently. Also I have to clean out the fuel and air filters a lot.
