The Saga Conitnues....

So Sunday morning my car miraculously started - after 16 hours of being plugged in of course. After which I promtply went back inside to sit and watch tv and iron all afternoon. In the evening however I had a birthday dinner to attend, to which of course I drove. After a lovely dinner and our goodbyes my car started again - good so far - but funny enough after I left oakridge I was driving down crowchild just at the military museum and voila, my car stalled - ON CROWCHILD TRAIL! Nice huh? I eventually got it started and after a few more stalls and my engine light popping on I made it home and plugged it in. At this point I was so angry, I wanted to blow up my car - stupid car!

Anyhoo this morning I woke up extra early and arrived at the dealership as they opened and demanded they fix my car, it's only 5 months old, these things shouldn't happen. They were quite sympathetic and promised to fix it by the time I finished work - how lovely! But, that is not the end of the story... I got to work and about 1 hour later I got a call about my car - apparently they found the problem- my PCM crashed - which I understadn to be the computer bit of my car - somethin that is potentially veyr expensive to fix, luckily I have a good waranty... and so I don't have my car, but I do get either a colbalt or G6 pursuit to drive in the meantime....

Now, all I have left to do is get winter tires......

Don't feel so bad, I'm TOTALLY friends off with my car. I came out of a meeting last night after class (7:40pm) and it wouldn't start! After two hours of drama I had to leave it there. It's still there now.
