Struck again

So today I went for a job interview, it went well actually and was offered the job. But i go to leave, start my car and it makes this horrible screeching sound only with the clutch pedal push in. Can't drive it home cuz im like 50 miles from home, so i have it towed to a stealership. Turns out my throw out bearing exploded. They're gonna replace the clutch, to bearing, pilot bearing, pressure plate, and machine the fly wheel, $960 ouch and the price of a rental car while mine is in the shop.....im pissed cuz i can do all of this myself for the cost of parts (better parts) and machining. Im having them save all the old parts so ill throw up some pics after i get the car back which should be Thursday. Im gonna be so poor after this. Anyone want to buy a 95 GT with 79,000miles, haha.

Re: Struck again

thats probably karma restoring balance to your life after giving you a job when the unemployment rate is soaring.

Re: Struck again

Having unexpected crap happen to the ride does suckith the fat one, but having a job is a plus.

Re: Struck again

its a good time for an upgrade, not just oem parts, tow it home if you want to do the work yourself.
