well it is official. jason's jeep is dead.
it has been having a series of problems for months now including needing new barings, oil pump and other major repairs. plus it still didn't have very good oil pressure as in when he was at a stop it would fall to zero. not good. then on thursday he was getting ready to get on i-95 and the jeep went bang then the engine died. for once jason's speedy driving was an asset since he had enough momentum to coast into a parking spot at the mystic marriott. it could have been far worse like if he'd actually gotten on 95 or in the middle of the road. instead he got to hang out in the lobby, out of the rain, until i could pick him up. friday he had it towed to his mechanic where the funeral notice came from today. i guess the crank shaft broke and shoved rods into someplace that sounds scary.
so he is now in the market for a new car. probably a civic so that he could actually get more than 13 miles to the gallon. he's going to hang onto what is left of the jeep until he can scrape the money together to put a new engine it. it will be his fair weather, fun car. no point trading it in. he'd only get a couple hundred bucks for it in the shape it is in.
can't really complain though especially when it could have turned out far worse.
