The van broke down today, its still drivable but the clutch is slipping quite badly and it refuses to come out of first gear without having to take the foot off the accelerator and then putting it back down hard, revving itself stupid as it does so.
Needless to say, I’ve had to go out and hire something so I can complete my mail run tomorrow and Monday. My mechanic can’t do anything with it until then, and I don’t want to take it to anyone else as I have had many a bad experience with mechanics in the past. (Hasn’t everybody??)
I guess I can’t complain. I’ve had quite a good run out of the vehicle, its done nearly 100,000km since the last major breakdown two years ago when the head gasket went, ( Archive – July 2001 ) although financially, this isn’t a good time because I’m busy setting up the company. Guess I will be molesting the Visa again.
