Damn Vehicle! Sittin Ducks!

Well the husband and I bought a used vehicle off a guy and it needed alot of work done to it... We finally done some work to it like changing the spark plugs and the idle sensor. These things helped out quite abit, but today we went out to do some errands and go fishing, and it would start, but would die and wouldn't rev up. So now we are sitting ducks! Ugh! I hate being stranded and having to rely on people!

Do you have a friend who is knowledgeable in engines? I think he is a better person to help you. If not, you can find those students who are studying in vocational school. They will do the work for less than half the cost.

Yeah my husband knows his way around a vehicle, thankfully!!! And that is a pretty good idea to keep in mind if need be!

No fun if you don't live in a city with walking distance to everything you need.

Oh gosh. That is really too bad. Did the previous owner tell you all that was wrong with it? Could it be a simple battery? Either way sorry to hear this. Hope you can figure it out!
