    I was leaving work today and when I put it in reverse to back out of the parking spot, as soon as I stepped on the gas, the left rear window went down on it's own. I stopped and tried to roll it back up, but it wouldn't. I shut it off and started it back up and it was fine and wouldn't do it again.
    It was acting like a dog that knew it was going to the vet LOL, cuz I dropped it off at the tranny shop this morning /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Wierd...huh?

    yeah, i have one of those too! two weeks ago i was talking to the barber while having a hair cut and we were talking about my truck. it came down to me saying that i had replaced everything except the motor. so on the 6 mile drive from there to my house, the damn thing spins a main bearing and starts knocking and running like crap, 1 week later the old motor is on a stand in the garage and the other one is in and running

    I've had that happen except mine went up. The switch shorted out in the dash. Must be all the water that tends to get in there. I believe my ghost is surviving on gas. I put $49 in Saturday and it is almost empty today. Expensive ghost!

    I just put half a tank in and it was $30. Diesel is getting expensive, but ya can't beat the fuel mileage and towing!!

    Sounds like maybe someone has been permanently borrowing some to me. I used to have a gas stealing problem until I put a sign on my barn that said "anyone found here at night will be found here in the morning". It's actually meant to keep GM workers from sleeping in warehouses but...

    Anyway, premium (89 octane here) is up to $1.95/gallon. Anyone that feels it a necessity to steal my petrol will find a $.04 CCI .22 caliber bullet in their butt.
