when i was a kid the old mans car would run OK and when we would go to
the park for a picnic on sundays the car would always stop about half
way there... sit in car for about an hour and then it would start right
up like nothing happened.... found out many years later on his other car
that the spark plugs were so fouled up that when the car was warmed up
it was like glow plugs, always lit up so the firing was off..... he
never did nelieve in working on a car until it stopped.... since i
started driving i bought just about every book on cars that i could
learn from.. never had that problem myself... once it gives me a little
trouble i fix the problem....
I would have loved for all my breakdowns to occur late on Friday of the week. It
would have given me the entire weekend to fix it without having to take time off
from work or work on the car late into the night. Friday late is ideal time for

I live in Quebec, the only garage open sundays is Canadian Tire. They
refused to repair the flat tire because they were too busy for me. Small
gaz stations with mechanical service were unable to repair a flat.
I have 9 or 13 tires that can be used as spare for my car, so that was not a
big problem, but imagine a guy in vacations, stuck on a road with broken
nuts, all garages closed... He must call a towing and wait until next
monday to find pieces. Here, even dealers are closed on week-ends.
