*I made this during the ummm.... thing over on the other site*
So I was on the phone talking to Joe while we was both driving on Thursday when 3 lights came on my dash. Its was my TC, Drivetrain, and my ABS light all came on. While my engine had a very hard time shifting into 2nd and 3rd gear. Then out of no were, I lost all engine power and my car began to brake by it self
. By the time the car had put on the brakes for me, I was already on the freeway put was able to pull over to the right side of the road as the car stopped it self with out me pushing the brake
. Before this whole thing happen, I when to get some gas and on my way out to the main street, I notice that I had to push my breaks down (almost to the ground) for the car to stop. I knew that my pads were on their last leg and only had about 30% life in them so I was going to check them out when I got home. Now hindsight, that should have told me that a huge fail was heading my way.
(BTW: this picture came from my new 5.0MP camera phone
. Not bad IMO.)
Since I was in Flint, MI which is about 35 miles away from my house and there was more than 10 dealerships with in 15 miles of my current location, I was forced to have my car towed to a dealership far a way from my house.
I get to the dealership were the service writer already had my info and the guy told me that my rental car is on its way. They already had my car up on the lift before my rental got there so I was able to talk to the guy that was working on my car before I left. He said that my right front wheel barring went out (you can tell after the car was off the ground) which caused my ABS sensor to be damage and also my brake caliber to fail on me (thats why it slowed it self down on the highway) :jaw:. Since everything always fail on me on the weekend or on or before a holiday, all of the parts won't be in until Wednesday or maybe even Thursday
Well the dealership gave me a car to tool around in via Hurtz. They gave me a 08 Ford Fusion which is the Ford model of my car with a V6, power seats, and a 6 disk MP3 changer with New York plates on it :rofl:. I see that they step up on the rental car world lol. So for the pass day or so I've been using the fact that the V6 has no TC and been burning the rubber :woo: Below is a pic of it from the same camera phone as the pic above, I guess the phone doesn't like the tinted glass that was on the window
. I'm still learning how to take pics on this phone.
I think Joes Jeep gave my car the lemon
