snowballs

Car is in a trusted shop for a new clutch. In taking off the exhaust, it appears the guts of the cat are disintegrating....explains the rattle in my muffler....The muffler is also full of cat guts....(yay). So after the clutch, it's off to the exhaust shop..... New cat and OEM style muffler - $450 installed at the one exhaust shop around her that I trust.

Guess when all is said and done I'm getting closer and closer to having a new car...haha

all work is done. With the new clutch I now realize just how bad the old one was. I think the flywheel resurfacing did more good than anything....shop said it was a little rough. That would explain the clutch chatter, etc I was having. The new pressure plate is an improvement too...pedal pressure is much closer to where it should be and it honestly drives like a different car.

Exhaust fixed as well.

Now the water pump is leaking on my truck....

Word.

I think the truck is mocking me because I just paid it off a couple months ago.

No car payments on any of the 5 vehicles in my fleet, thankfully, but they're still keeping me poor.
