I ended yesterday by getting my dad's burb fixed and driving 2 hours home in crappy weather....problem solved right? Doesn't start this morning. Cranks, but doesn't start, just like before. Dead car #1. I get home, turns out while I was gone my dad took my DD in to get aligned....$427 later everything is A-OK I borrow his PSD to go get my trailer today. I had to unload my trail truck because I need my trailer to be empty for tomorrow. I throw a battery in my trail truck...doesn't crank. I check the battery...it's charged. It's probably the starter, but I didn't have time to screw with it. I ran the winch cable over the truck and pulled it backwards off the trailer. Dead vehicle #2. Since I borrowed the Ford to get my trailer, my dad took my '93 to run errands with...he calls me when I'm on my way back into town. "Ummm...Mike, I think your tranny just went." "Greeeeeaaaaaaaaat. Well, I have an empty equipment trailer, I'll come and we'll load it up." I get there, and a cooler line is blown. He left the truck running while this is happening to stay warm....in the meantime pumping all the tranny fluid out of the transmission. I patch the line, fill it back up...doesn't work. Let it idle, put more fluid in there than I ever thought a 4L60E could dump on the ground and it works. I do a little dance on the inside, ya know the one that you do when you crack the first frosty can of the night, and proceed to take it home with him following me with my trailer. I get home and soon realize that I have no reverse. I put it in neutral and am unable to push it backwards. In order to move it rearward I have to start it, put it in neutral, shut it off, put the t-case in neutral, and then it'll roll. T-case won't go into neutral while running no matter what gear I'm in or whether there is stress on it or not, no amount of throttle will move the truck backwards. Dead car #3. But...the moral of the story is...... I've got a frosty brew in my hand, so everything is alright.
