I had a bad feeling this morning. I didn't know if I was getting cold feet or what. So we
went for the test drive. We went over things again. The next door neighbor came over to see
what was going on. Just as we started to do the walk around the guy was looking hard under
the van, which was next on my list. There was a large dark spot there. So I knew to get a
better look the van would need to be moved. It started right up but it had a little trouble
backing up. We thought it was cold. As I drove away it kind of clunked. I right then and there
figured it had a tranny problem. We hoped it was because it hadn't been driven lately. As I
drove back I decided to go further. Then it really started having a problem. I told the guy the van
had a tranny problem and he said no the fluid was pink. Well I know a tranny problem so
I said I will have to pass. I let him know that as far as other handling it was great. It held
the road hands off and didn't pull when I stepped on the brakes. I was very disappointed.
I was almost home when the guy called me back to apologize. He took it out and realized
I was right. The tranny had lost all the fluid. He was going to take in and have it checked.
and fixed. Well if he wants to sell it it will have to be fixed. I wished him well.
So its back to the hunt.
We had a beautiful sun set tonight to make up for the bad day.
That's all for tonight
Good Night All
