Today is gloomy and overcast. The rain has been steadily coming down since 8:00 this morning. As luck would have it, my car stalled AGAIN!. Nearly made it to the 1st client. Fingers crossed it won't. happen again.

I hope you got it started and were able to get where you needed to go and home again. I take it the air/fuel filter wasn't the cure.

It was the fuel filter and it didn't work, although it did need to be changed.

@ElusiveButterfly I hope you find out what is the problem and it won't be costly.

@ElusiveButterfly Then it's time to kick Murphy and his law out and tell him where he can shove it. I hope it won't be costly.

My husband was supposed to take the car to a parts store and have them hook it up to a meter to see what is going on with it. He is working late so that isn't going to happen tonight.

@ElusiveButterfly Oh I never stalled with an automatic. I would be so scared, glad you got to your destination safely.

@infatuatedbby Thankfully there was a place to pull the car over so I could get myself together and try to start it again.

This would be annoying. Does it start again easily or do you have to get help?

It's bad when that happens. Mine stopped in lots of traffic and with what little power that was left was able to turn the corner and pull in a parking lot. But I was shocked when I wasn't hit from behind because of all the traffic.

I have to drive all over town when I do shopping for clients or am on my way to another.

That is quite possible. But, who really knows for sure.

No idea yet. My husband is taking to the vehicle to an auto part store to hook it up to a meter.

I hate to have problems with the car and when it rains it's even worse.

We have no idea what the problem is. When he changed the fuel filter it was clear that it needed to be replaced.
