My minivan thanks you for the prayers.
And I thank you.
Apparently, I have problems with spark plugs, belts, and various other pieces of equipment that keep my car running and the "Check Engine Soon" light off.
What I don't have, are problems with rods, which, according to my mechanic, is a good thing.
I feel like I'm speaking a foreign language here--I don't care about the description. Just tell me you can fix it and that I don't have to get a new engine or a new vehicle.
So, for a mere $400, my long-suffering van will be fine. Or at least drivable for another year.
Sad that I'm so grateful for that, even when I don't actually have the $400. It's going on my Firestone credit card, which accrues no interest provided I pay it off within 90 days. I actually had to go home and dig the card out of the ice-cube tray where I put it so I won't use it!
