I rarely get the opportunity to drive my car because my SO uses it to get to work every day. Tuesday I had to have it to do some errands so I took him to work. As I was about to pull away he tells me “Make sure it doesn’t get too low on gas or park anywhere it’s not level ground.”
Okay. Why should I not park it anywhere not level, dear?
“Oh because it won’t start and you’ll have to push it to a level place to get it going”.
Well…um…what the heck is this? Surely this is not a good thing! I was in a hurry and he reassured me he’d have it looked at this weekend. I try really hard to not worry but I am car cursed so I never turned the car off until I got home.
Fast forward to tonight and he came home with the bad news that he had to have my baby towed home. He knows a few things about car repair but has no idea what the problem might be. It tries to start; sounds like it’s out of gas but the tank is half-full. (He added gas this morning, so it’s not the gauge misregistering). We won’t be able to take it anywhere until next week, so I was wondering if any of you car folks might be able to give me any clues as to what this could be. She’s a '92 Plymouth Acclaim if that makes a difference.
