Pour one out for the Jeep.

So, the check engine light came on in my car. Then went off. Then came on again – caught the code, throttle position sensor. Made the appointment to take it to the shop. The light went off again.

The shop: “Yeahhhhhh, we couldn’t trigger the light again, but given the engine noises we heard and the age of the car, the engine is on its last legs. Anything is fixable with enough money, but…”

Better to know now so I can calmly go about acquiring a replacement, rather than it being a flaming heap at the side of the road.

The Jeep is 18 years old. It’s been a fantastic car. It owes me *nothing* after all these years. It was the first car I got all on my own after I got divorced.

Got a little teary eyed driving it back from the shop.
