For the first time since I have had my Trooper, it left me stranded!
I know most readers of this forum are men. So I will keep it short and
Taking the kids out to eat after a parade. Come out and my trooper will
not start. I called my xhusband to come and help. He felt it was the
starter. So I called a tow truck. (I was 50 miles away from home) The
tow guy had a roll-back, whew! Anyway, had it tow to a family members
house. My current husband said not to worry he would take care of
everything just come home. We would start on it first thing Sunday
We got to my counsin's house at 10am sunday morning.
Starter was off by 10.45 even though he had to take off a section of
the exhaust pipe. We went to advance auto, were they had a rebuilt
starter for 114. We bench tested the old starter and the new one. And
the old starter was shot. We drove back to the trooper and with in
another 45 mins. he had my trooper going again.
He was thinking it was going to be a B*tch. He got my trooper back on
the road in less than 24 hours. So to all the wives/girlfriends of
shade tree mechanics do' em right and they will do right by you:-)
