It's the first time I've had a car break down! I know it's either bad battery/connection, starter or alternator. Pretty sure it's battery connection issues. Waiting in the cold car for the tow truck:(

My sisters car broke down yesterday. Think her transmission is shot or something get car is like permanently stick in neutral. Anyways I waited with her while her tow truck came and gave her a ride home. She can't get her car looked at for about 2 weeks :(.. Hope you get it sorted out soon!

That sucks! I'm going to have my neighbor look at it this evening, he's a mechanic. And I hope I'm riding home with tow truck dude because I'm here alone. Not a great place either:-/

Our heater went out....again. The air conditioner worked all summer and now, for the second year in a row, right before the cold weather gets here the damn heater went out.

I know this sounds silly. But is the gear in park? I had mine not start once and it was because the gear wasn't all the way in park. My dad drove out to help me and it was instantly fixed.

Yes. I'm a mechanics daughter, I tried jumping it, tightening the cables on the battery, nothing. Thank you though, sometimes it is those little things we don't think of!
