Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha


Yesterday on way home, started seeeing something ‘off’ in Buffalo. (My truck for those uninitiated) RPM was kind of erratic. This morning it was worse. Transmission slipping. Fluid dark but not burnt, but really thin feeling.

I know she is due for transmission issues, 278thou on the clock, but this time of year,,, To

Took a chance, went to a place where I used to be a manager (in Cincy, not local). They have a machine that swaps out all the fluid without needing to drop the pan. Found long time ago, you drop that pan after so many miles, you’re swapping a transmussion next. The flush though,,,(and trust me, I was skeptical as all get out until I saw real proof it works)

So, $150 lighter in cash, but the slipping is gone. Still seeing some ‘hunting’ going on at lower speeds, so I know the torque converter is worn out, but I’ve bought some time between now and ‘She’s dead Jim’. Hopefully I can get through into spring when Bid-ness picks up and I have more available lucre.

And that is why I didnt get a post up until this late hour. Gonna spend the rest of the day playing catch-up on the distractions of the day, and maybe extrapolate some wild assed idea of conspiracy,,,lol.

Cya all tomorrow
