Singles Only And The Check Engine Light From Hell!




Sometimes I feel like someone has a little voodoo doll that looks like me and they're just poking the shit out of It!I went to my dealer to get some  work done to my vehicle.(I like how they call them dealers,they never cut ME any deals.)Luckily It was covered,but of course the mechanic got me with the old "We can take care of that check engine light for ya  ,If you'd like?" Unfortunately THAT was not covered.But that stinking check engine light has been such a fucking thorn In my side that I succumbed. So, $350 dollars later and no check engine light. Whoopie!Something told me all still was not well,and my pessimistic intuition was right!The check engine light returned  :) It might as  well have said "Fucking Liars"  because that's what I read when the little bastard light decided to  turn back on again.I called them back and they told me It's probably not  related to anything they did,but If It was that they'd take care of It for me..... In a week!Not to mention I've recently been diagnosed with having vertigo :) I thought my room spinning days were over when I decided to quit drinking,but apparently my optimistic intuition was wrong.So I told my better half that I'd better do something quick to get all of this shit off my chest and here I am,blogging about It! And you know what,as I type my misfortunes I suddenly feel a little more relieved.Not 100% ,but well enough to blog, anyways.Luckily I like 2016 Topps ,or else this post  would have been  a total downer.Well It might still be ,considering how much you guys loved this years product lol. These cards weren't pulled out of a pack or anything,I picked them up on eBay even before I picked up any 2016 Topps packs.I love that Conforto!I don't mind the coupling of the rookie cup and rc logo.The Noah card Is awesome as well.The future stars header could be a little more dazzling but It works,somewhat.And the only thing better than a rookie cup on a Syndergaard card, Is a Reese's Cup  on a Syndergaard card!

  1. I've been there with the check engine light, all I can offer is my sympathy, and a suggestion to check that the gas cap is tight (which you've probably done 15 times already).

    I get vertigo sometimes, and I've found that - in my particular case - it coincides with my sinuses getting overly gunked up; I guess it puts pressure on my inner ear or something. I've been using a neti pot for a couple of years, and I don't get vertigo if I keep up on my sinus maintenance... But again, that's mine, there's a bunch of different causes of vertigo.

    I get much more excited about Conforto than I do about David Wright. Does that make me a bad Mets fan?

  2. Thanks man.Yeah the gas cap is the first thing I check seeing as how easy it is to do.I'm no mechanic so everything else has to be checked by a professional.

    My excitedness over Wright wore out right around the time he started wearing that ridiculous ,oversized concussion helmet.I knew things were just going to go downhill from there.Your not a bad Mets fan,just a Mets fan.

  4. Check around with your local auto parts shops (Autozone, Advances, O'Reillys) - one should be able to hook up their code unit, pull the code and then tell you what the possible issues could be. My Autozone does it. I picked up the unit myself when I found it on clearance.

    If you don't want to do that, you can search the internet. You can find how to get the check engine light to flash and give you the engine codes, then find the answer on line.

  7. I had an issue with a local car dealer a few years back. They gave me a huge laundry list of issues my car had, ~$1200 in charges. Decided to get a second opinion from an independent mechanic and the issue was my new tire was grinding against the tire guard. Total cost to fix....around $15.

    Glad you are figuring out the issue. Car problems can be stressful.
