Well if you’ve noticed the abundant posts today it’s because I’m sitting at home, stranded, the ’98 Corolla with 115,000 miles unwilling to start. The first blog post was homework. I’d been working on a lengthier, more profound post when I hit a wall, realizing I didn’t have anything particularly profound to say. So Zits cartoon it is. I think that counts?
I’m not sure why my car isn’t starting. It is turning over but not starting. Shaun had already left for work, and my dad isn’t sure what’s wrong. My dad of course thinks 115k miles is a lot, I disagree. Not for a Toyota, anyway. The possible diagnoses so far are: spark plugs, starter motor, or fuel pump. But I have to wait for Shaun to get home to take a look. Because of the odd location of my work, I can’t take a bus and I’m too far to call upon someone for a ride. So I’m trying to make the best of my time. I really don’t think I’m succeeding though!
