Its gonna die, and theres nothing I can do about it. I dont understand how people on here keep doing so much too there rides. well, I guess I do understand, they probably have the money.

Im making BARELY enough money to get by right now. I have so many debts to clear.

The reason Im posting this is I dont want my car to die. These are the things I think are wrong with it.

Rear Suspension: Is really horrible right now. I havent even investigated the front carefully, but its probably bad too.

Tires: Are ALL bald as hell. no grip, like NONE!

Tie Rod End(I think...) Wheel will jerk to the side for no reason when driving straight. New CV joints, just had an alignment.

some strange engine sound that seems to come from the alternator area, but lower down, that is at engine speed. like a belt sound but its not the belts. something in the engine itself.

possible transmission trouble: clutch isnt grabbing quickly at all. really bad sometimes actually.

I could be overexaggerating but I had a really horrible day today. My car was giving me shit today. And every little detail was driving me nuts!

I dont wanna lose my car, iv fallen in love with it. Its just not possible for me to sink money into it right now!

I need to find some quick budget solutions fast.

Sorry, I dont mean to rant, but its hot as a @#%! today and Im grumpy and was hoping somebody would have some insight.

I took mechanics for two years so Im fairly mechanically inclined. Just no time or money right now.

Thanx

Wes

I decided to suck it up and take my car to get checked out. I was right apparently about the tie rod end. As well, my alignment was still f´ed. So im going back to the place I had it done before and showing them the specs from the new alignment job and demanding some sort of payback for there poor worksmanship.

Also, had to replace the inner socket on the rack and pinion.

got two new front tired while I was at it just cuz it should have been done.

400 bucks later(god thats gonna hurt like a mofo.....) im not so upset. Still have a nasty rattle which I believe is the heat shield. Which I will probably just remove for now.

I feel much better now, although My wallet sure doesnt.

I was gonna fork over the 10 bucks to be a full member, but I REALLY cant afford it now. Thats how poor I am these days. I have the welfare Scort! lol

Peace

Wes
