nothing is more fun than spending 3.5h on the side of the highway because of the alternator belt disappearing - Euro

More issues encountered today include:

  • starter not working, so many push starts happened (could be due to not getting enough power because the alternator is shot and causing the battery to die out slowly)
  • running like absolute garbage because of not getting enough electricity
  • lost all upwards gears, might be due to bad or non-existent oil
  • lost the power steering because wasn’t able to get the pump properly back in place on side of the road

Other issues encountered the past weeks

  • air in the brakes and leaking brake fluid, replaced the caliper and all is good now
  • rear brake discs very very thin, and brake pads also pretty much non-existent, but replaced with the caliper on one side
  • exhaust breaking off and ripping the oxygen sensor with it
  • a headlight went out but replaced the bulb
  • tire puncture
