Well the time has come to get a new tranny. On our way home from Visalia Sat Ocho was acting up and thankfully he got us home. With the help of AAA (no firends have a car trailer and ours is too narrow) we will be headed up to Rays tonight to get the process started. Let's hope the engine last another year!

I always have been thankful that, even in the worst of it, Hugo has given his all to get me someplace safe or home when breaking down. Like a dedicated little workhorse. My honda would just quit me, didn't matter where or when. LOL.

Watch out, Ray may want you to blog the tranny rebuild... Wink

Yes I was thankful. We were still 2 hours out when I felt something go wrong so I babied him all the way home. Feels likes the clutch, but we think it's tranny. Either way tranny needs a rebuild as it pops out of first and grinds sometimes going into gear.

I don't mind blogging, but my issue is I'm 45 min away so I won't be able to get the shop on the weekdays. Sad

The good thing about these cars is that you can usually limp them home. They're pretty good about not taking a sh-t on the side of the road and leaving you stranded.
