Default She finally died....

... My Golf died on the way home today.

I was heading home up the 15 north. I went to give it gas when the engine flutter and lost power. I had to pull over and get towed home. IT fells like the engine flooded. It wants to kick over, but the engine wont start.

soooo now i got to figure out how i'm getting to work till the 26th. My sister is on spring break thsi week and she'll let me barrow her VW on monday. Hopefully i can get one of the Test Cars from LA so i dont have depand on her.

Why couldnt she last just just one more week... my poor golf

Oh man, that sucks.

The good news is that your MINI is ready. Imagine if it was still 2 months away.

thanks guys!!

It sounds like it might be the fuel pump. I had a mechaic friend of mine stop by on his way back from vegas tonight and he thinks its just that. He showed me that to replace and what to do.. I just need to pickup a new one.. should cost me about 100 bucks.... hopefully that will fix it. But im in no rush to get it fixed.. the mini is almost here and so i dotn need the golf right away.

My little sister is on spring break so she's letting me brow her Nu Beetle, I just owe her and oil change and dinner

The WikedGolf might be down.... but she far from dead!!! she will live again
