i drove my truck from Pennsylvania to Minnesota just before christmas and it broke down halfway through pennsylvania.

then in ohio i got a speedin ticket cause the speedometer stopped working right.


then in minnesota the battery died and it wouldnt start. had my gf's dad look at it and it turns out it flooded and needed new spark plugs.


its a 97 dodge dakota


now i just went out to start up my truck to go out and the headlights arnt working. >.< need to check the fuse box tomorrow.

Yeah, yesterday while driving home we realized there was a funny smell.
It turns out that all the battery water had disappeared/evaporated and the horrid rotting egg smell was because of that.
Anyway, the car wouldnt start, and had to cool down for a few hours.
#8
My car over heated because my anti freeze hose thing blew up in the middle of a fast food drive through. The smell drove away customers and got everywhere. Luckily I had already gotten my chicken wrap, so I just turned my car off and ate that while I waited for a ride.

so you let an asian female drive a vehicle and expected nothing to come of it.

thats like letting a pedophile teach kindgergarteners... you just dont do it.

She didn't crash it, she could have just driven forward. I was parking on the street right next to my house.
#11
My car died (mechanic said the anti-freeze thing broke and poured all over the engine) while I was driving across the state. I was in the middle of nowhere during an ice storm. Towing companies refused to come pick me up because the weather was too dangerous. Storm lasted about another hour and a half, then a tow truck came.

Are you the guy whose mom wouldn't let him borrow her car to drive to your gf's for Christmas?

Yeah, my car is basically the definition of a problem vehicle.

First off, the whole engine and 90% of the interior had to be replaced when I bought it for the wonderful price of 400 bucks. I have a wrecked one just like it so all the parts were sitting there.

After I got it on the road, my tie rods on the left side broke. When this happened I was about five miles from home. The car was fine other than the small inconvienience of it not being able to turn more than about 5 degrees to the left, even with the wheel doubled over.

I literally had to stop the car, turn the wheel to the right and back up to make it through left curves.

After that the wiring fried, which took about a month to fix because my stupid ass along with some lackluster advice thought the fuel pump had died, so I spent two weeks replacing that.

Everything is ok now other than a wiring problem that still exists that makes my gauges go crazy for a few minutes at a time. My lights blink occasionally also.

This is what it looks like now:




...and, despite the trouble it's given me, I love the damn thing to death. It's like a child and a best friend to me.

First off its a Dodge, second its a 97 Dodge, third, extreme cold makes things break alot faster.

My door stops, you know, the lever that makes your door stay open halfway without just shutting on its own and keeps the door from opening too much, the roller bearing snapped, and dosent roll anymore, so it sounds like I'm opening the crypt door from a 16th century zombie graveyard.

yeah but does it have hubcaps that you can see the rim perfectly through

I don't have hubcaps, I have solid aluminum rims, stock. I drive a 94 Chevy Silverado, dark metallic blue, dual Magnaflow exaust, high flow K@N custom intake. Its still in very nice shape, for a 94. But the dash is cracked in multiple places, the heater core is about to go out, the AC vent fan motor sequels on all setting but high, I have a slight head gasket leak, header board is starting to disintegrate, tranny needs to be rebuilt, the shift solenoid mainly needs to be replaced, and I need a new clear coat on the entire truck, since it was mostly buffed out when Mexicans stole my truck and drove it through a cedar forest, and took the radiator and left the entire truck as it was, just took the radiator, mother ****ers!

But I love my truck, get 20MPG on the highway and 16-18 in the city, depending on how heavy my foot is.

Its actually made of Platinum, much more comfy.

The truck is only worth $3500, and I've put over $1400 into it in just parts since I've had it. But I'm broke as hell, so I can't fix any of that stuff I listed above.

I'm about to top every single one of you.

1996 Nissan Maxima - $2000 when I bought it, 89k miles.

In 11k miles, I've had to pour $2500+ just to keep the car running.

Here's a partial list of the stuff I actually remember replacing.

Crank seal
Water pump (biggest pain in the ass ever)
Camshaft sensor
All the belts
all 4 tires
IACV and Throttle body gaskets
Starter
Fuel pump


and here's what needs replacing still

Valve cover gaskets
The IACV itself
The camshaft sensor socket
the knock sensor
the fuel temperature sensor
The entire suspension
Something that's up with my steering

I've got a long way to go.

Oh and she takes premium gasoline, and guzzles it like a Hummer. In traffic I got 14 mpg.

But she's a beauty.
