So I've had transmission problems. My oldest brother comes over and puts some Lucas transmission stuff in it. Then tells me I have to drive it for the stuff to work it's way through. To "hopefully" not fix but buy myself some time with the transmission. Okay, so I start driving back and forth to work. It's only been acouple of days but it seems like. The transmission is getting better, it's not shifting as hard as it was. Tonight when I leave work. I walk out to my car and go to start it. Nothing, it made alittle noise. Like when you put two live wires together but it didn't start. I'm hoping that it's just the battery but it could be the alternator.
My dad and me are going to going to look at it tomorrow. Or I guess technically today. LOL!
This couldn't of come at a worse time. In two days Vidar's Hof of the Highland Rim. Are having a Blót to their patron god Vidar and I was really looking forward to going. If nothing else but to hopefully repay the kindness and understanding they've shown me. I've sent them an email explaining what going on and saying that I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it. I'm hoping that I'll be able to send another one. Saying that I'll be there.
On a much better note though: I got my first cheque since I started back at my first job (Burger King) and they gave me a raise?
LOL! Seems you get paid better for quiting and coming back. LOL! My manger said it's was probably my general manager's doing. Going ahead and giving me a raise. That way when I come up for evaluation and they see that I quite, then came back. If they deny me a raise, I'll already of gotten it. So that was cool.
Back to the car. So now I have to see what the not starting thing is all about. Then I'll have to figure out what I want to do?
Will it be worth fixing?
Since I already know I'll have to replace the transmission. Somewhere in the next couple of months. Now I might have to replace something else on top of that.
If it's not worth fixing. Should I buy another used car?
I might buy another car that only runs for six or nine months. Would it be worth it if that happens?
Should I buy a new car?
If I did "I'd hope" it'd last longer than any of my other cars. LOL! If the answer was yes. Then the question would become. Can I afford it?
I don't know... I mean I am making more than what I was but if I did get a new car. It'd still take up most of my monthly income. With the car note and insurance that is. So if I did buy a new car, there would be no way. I could move out anytime soon.
Right now though. I'm so frustrated with how my luck is going with the cars I buy. That I'm seriously leaning towards a new car but I'd have to wait. If I was to go right now to buy a new car. While my credit is pretty good. My work history is rocky right now. Since I just started my first job again. So that'll probably jack up my interest rates a bit.
So the lose plan I've formulated in the hour and forty five minutes. Since my car wouldn't start is.
If it's something serious and not just the battery. Then I might get rid of yet another car. Then buy yet another used car. LOL! Then cross my fingers and hope that it runs for about nine months. It'd be nice if it'd run for alittle more than a year. LOL! Then see where I am in life and maybe buy a new car.
I'm just getting really tired of buying crappy cars, you know?
Anyways. Take care. :)
