      And the saga continues..........

      Coming down out of TN this morning,riding along, all the sudden I hear a belt squeal, then, clunk. Nowhere to pull off, keep a watch on gauges, temp slowly rising. Ease on about 4 miles and jump off the ramp, pull over, steam rising. Pull the hood, get sick. Fan clutch bearing burnt out, allowed fan to move forward, right into the month old radiator. Pretty good gash in it, donít know if it can be fixed or not. Estimate was around $2500 not counting radiator. Probably end up being closer to $5000 when all is said and done. This damn truck is killing me. About ready to just let it go back. Iím sick of this crap. Work 3-4 weeks, off a week in a shop, getting farther behind every day. My meagar savings have been spent trying to keep this pos on the road, Iím probably as broke as Iíve been in years. Thoroughly disgusted.

      Sorry for the rant. Nothing more to say right now......

        Sorry to hear about the endless problems with the truck. What truck is it? Might be time to trade it in and get one that isn't jinxed? Hope this is the end of the breakdowns.

            Got it towed to Birmingham to a shop. They say they may be finished with it by Thursday, I hope they are. I've used them before, they are fast and good.

            afret, this truck is one I got weaseled into buying from the finance company when my last one blew the engine. They cut me a "deal" and took it in on trade and added what I owed to this one, a mistake I shouldn't have made. It has been a pos since I got it. I owe way more than it would sell for right now, so I'm forced to keep dumping money into it and hope to get it paid down low enough to trade it and have some down payment, or just give up and let them have it back, screwing up my credit.

              Talked to the shop this morning, should be finished late today/early tomorrow morning. Really studying my options right now, this crap is driving me to the poor house.

                Picked the truck up yesterday afternoon, went and loaded today for Monday. Over $4100 shop bill, not including the towing. Now maybe I can run a while without problems. About ready to just go bankrupt and start picking up aluminum cans.
