So, I was leaving home (in Southeastern Iowa) to go to Missouri for cheap cigarettes. I got to here:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&saddr=Washington,+IA&daddr=Donnellson,+IA&hl=en&geocode=&mra=ls&sll=40.64802,-91.564436&sspn=0.027221,0.055189&g=Donnellson,+IA&ie=UTF8&z=9

I looked in my rearview and saw a big cloud of smoke following me. I pulled into a Casey's gas station to check my fluids. Everything looked fine, so I started out again. Once I hit 25 mph(which is where my van shifts into 3rd gear) it just seemed like I was idling. The power wasn't going to my wheels. Shit. I had to make it home in second gear.

All the further I would have needed to go was here:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&saddr=Donnellson,+IA&daddr=Wayland,+MO&hl=en&geocode=&mra=ls&sll=40.609782,-91.579285&sspn=0.871568,1.766052&ie=UTF8&z=10


tl;dr : 3rd and 4th gears went out in my van

I paid $20 for 12 and some odd gallons of gas to make it down and back on.

Well, at saving $15 per carton on average, one carton's savings has just about paid for my gas. Everything else was just more money in our pockets.

Plus, I wasn't paying for it. I just had a car and an afternoon to blow, one of my friends suggested we go down. I said "Well, it WILL be an adventure."

Should have heeded my own fucking advice.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

once i was in the passenger seat and the tire didn't blow out, it left the axle, don't ask me how, and it rolled down the rest of the street. i smashed into the windshield.

A sense of obligation."

The pit is not your doc.......mechanic.

Save your money, use public transportation to get to a job, buy a decent used car.

I know what to do, I'm not an idiot. I was just sharing the experience.

And fuck buying a new car, I'm just going to fix the tranny.
