This morning Hubby kissed me goodbye and left for work, just like every morning. About 2 minutes later he comes back in and says "Jana, my car won't start, can I drive yours today?" That was no problem for today but tomorrow it would be a BIG problem. After looking at it for a few minutes I quickly realized the problem must be with either the starter or the battery. The battery was replaced less than a year ago, so my money was on the starter. Quite literally, as a starter runs around $400. We weren't going to be able to tow it today, and I wanted to avoid towing (read: extra $100) if we could, since we don't have the money to start with. I went outside with the intention to call my cousin Calvin, the Car Whisperer, to see if he knew anything that would help. I got ahold of his wife who told me he was unavailable. Sad day. Before I even hung up my cell, one of our neighbors came to me and said "I'm a mechanic, can I look at your car?" He tried to start it, and it didn't work. He then popped the hood and jiggled a wire. Voila! He then gave us the cost estimate: 75 cents! Yep, you read that right, 3/4 of a dollar. The battery needs to be cleaned off with a can of coke. I tell you, whoever our guardian angels are, they don't get paid enough!
