Snowflake and I have had a rough month. She was such a champion going to Wyoming to get Christmas Tree #6 early in December and now it’s the end of December and I don’t own her anymore.
As you’ll see in the following post – Chris and I get pretty attached to our cars. For me, it’s because I trust my car. I know she’ll get me on fun adventures, across the country (like when I moved from MN to UT and back with her), and when conditions get bad, I know she and I can do what it takes to get home safely. Snowflake’s been with me through a lot and saying goodbye is hard to do.
About 3 weeks ago, Chris and I were driving home from a holiday party and I was having a hard time getting up a hill to our house. Snowflake wasn’t running well at all. Almost as if she was running on 1-2 cylinders instead of 4. We got home safely and were able to diagnose a little bit on our own and stop/start the engine, so figured we’d drive it down to the shop in the morning. The next morning, she didn’t start at all. So we had to push her out of the garage and take Chris’s car, Lobster to work. Chris did some research and found a part to put in it that should do the trick.
