#2,753 Ouida is Back.

A couple weeks ago, I pulled up at the Mercantile and when I tried to leave 30 minutes later, it just wouldn’t crank. It sounded like it wanted to, but I would turn the key and get nothing but a whine, never a crank. Ben has been experimenting, changing this and that in the engine, calling his dad for his opinion, then finally figuring out the solution would not be a $4,000 engine overhaul, but instead a $65 ignition module. 15 minutes after lifting the hood, she was running again. Today at lunch mama and I took her for a spin to PDI for burgers.


I’m glad to be back in my car, even if the air conditioner struggles to keep up with the greenhouse windows.
