My car is fixed!!

For those of you who subscribe to the "Pirate's Ramblings" from time to time know about my recent vehicle woes. In my mind, the only thing that saved me from catching fire and burning to death on the side of the highway was the dirty video store on Rt 80. Thank God for porn and stirppers! But I digress... The moral of today's ramble is this; MY CAR IS BACK!! And, take it from me, it's who you know. The cost of my repairs... $23.87 It appears that my car leaks an amount of oil, it burns a sum too. But the thing I didn't know, is that it's pushing it into the coolant. I know Alison had a similar problem, but it was reversed... She was getting coolant into her oil. Well, either way is conclusive of a head problem. So, unless someone here wants to give me a head job it's time for a new car soon. The amount isn't that significant, but the condition could deteriorate quickly. Maybe I'll have to start a website recognizably named, "BuyPirateACar.com"... Only I am not as good looking or seductive as Andrea. I just thought I would let you guys celebrate with me my car is back and I don't have to spring for a new ride just yet!

On a side note... the dianosis to my car is that the amount of oil had dipped dangerously low, and became very hot. Thus cooking itself and a few french fries. The oil presure light came on probably due to the temperature of the oil, rather than the lack of pressure. The noises were probably preliminary bearing seizures and good thing I used my quick goat thinking to pull into the strip club! So from now on, it's a case of oil in my trunk and checking the level every time I fuel up.

I'm getting really frustrated with most American car manufacturers...and Pontiac has pissed me off too in the past.

Seizing engine parts.....You should have gotten some lube, but I'm sure there wasn't any to be found anywhere...

... The rewards of D-I-Y is priceless

I fucked up one of the brake hardlines on my car while installing stainless steel brake lines. I learn from mistakes

Huh? No, my brake job went fine... it was the oil pressure light that was the problem.
