More Car Weirdness

My car is on its last legs. If it were a horse, it would wake up every morning and faithfully do its duty, but I'd still have to shoot it. My 1999 Saturn SL-1 has been a good little car, but lately, it has been acting like a dementia patient. Ever since I replaced the battery, starting the car has been an issue. Every so often, I will turn the ignition and all of the electricity will go out. Quite by accident, I discovered that shaking the car in just the right way will take care of the problem and allow the car to start. I've checked the connections to the battery numerous times and everything seems okay. 

It's obvious that this little car is ready to go to that great parking garage in the sky. I was just hoping I could squeeze another year out of it.

  1. Damn that sucks.
    Looks like its time to shoot that old boy
    or at least trade him in for a "horse" that can do more than neigh.
    Good luck!
