Since I spent the better part of Monday morning sifting through bureaucratic paperwork, it was only fitting that I spend the better part of yesterday morning under the hood of The Little Red Wagon, which is running badly again. I shelled out $170 for a new EGR valve, to no avail. It starts and idles fine, but can barely make it up a hill; I suspect a serious problem. It would figure. So, I have to bike the groceries this week, as the Old Green Van is doing no better. And it’s gray, rainy, and 40 deg. (F) out. Oh, and we’ve $60 left in the food budget to last another week. Piece of cake, right?
I’ll report back when I’m done.
