    Bad fuel pump (in-tank), bad fuel meter, bad intake manifold gasket. That was an expensive week...

    changed the oil in the truck, the o-ring at the ghey oil filter adapter blew out, and I lost all my new oil in home depot parking lot, ran to the part store, found out it was a dealer only part so i bought some gasket maker, made one, blew it out on the way home lost another 6qts of oil, and still cant drive my truck.

    not nessesarily a bad week but bad weeks

    Took my blazer back home to get the AC fixed, get it recharged it works come back up to emmetsburg, it works 2 days and quits, meet my dad im pomeroy swap vehicles, he takes it to the shop for me, i get home that weekend AC works I go to pic up some buddys and my brake master cylinder takes a crap. I get it back from that deal, come back up to emmetsburg and the 4x4 electronic shifter motor goes out. But the "$5000 96 S10 blazer is so much a better deal then the $3500 91 K5 Blazer Jeremy" I have never let dad live that down my $5000 blazer is up to problably close to 8000 now :doah:
