Dundas, June, 2013

Arrived safe and sound in Dundas late afternoon Friday.  It was a perfect day to be on the road; there were fluffy cumulus clouds floating gently across the sky and clear blue background, not too hot, not cold.  Made a pit stop at one of the new Ontario enroute stops.  Love the smell of the hand soap they use; wish I new what it was called.  Picked up a healthy lunch from the convenience store and some bottled water (cheaper from the case than from the store), ate and got back on the road.  Everything was great until Burlington where the whole highway ground to a halt.  It was stop and go for more than an hour and my car (which has had this fixed now 3 times at 3 different places) did it’s little jerk when shifting gears, the tracking light came on, and then it jerked everytime it shifted.  At one point there was a long enough stop that I was able to turn it off and restart, which resets the light but gives a thundering jerk when it shifts back into first.  That’s often the end of it but yesterday, the light came back on and it continued to jerk changing gears.  This time the transmission light came on as well.  If anyone out there has had this happen to their Chev Cavalier Z24 and knows what the cause is, please post.  I’m starting to think I’ll have to get rid of this car that I actually love.  At least it’s predictable when I’m on the road!

About mysm2000

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.
