{June 16, 2018}   Truck is Fixed, I Hope

After everything that happen today (yesterday now technically) I messaged My Good Friend and told him. He ask what I was doing tonight and said he would be at his shop at 10. I went about 930 to get the oil and dish soap I forgot to get that we needed. Then he told me he was running late at the pizza place we work at. I sat in the parking lot at the store for a while then bff said she was in the store. I walked in talked to her a bit. When I got outside I seen Good Friend had messaged and called me. He was there at the shop. I went over there, he was doing somthing on a little car. Took him all of 20 minutes or less to do. Made $140. I am thinking I am doing the wrong jobs.

Anyway he finished that we moved everything in and out got my truck in there. He showed me how to drain the radiator so that next week when I am off I can drain it put the soap in there and fill it back up. He says I need to do that at least once a week until there is no more oil in there. More offten would be better if I can.

I just pray this fixes it and I do not have any other problem with the water leaking again. We think it was building up pressure and pushing it out the cap. I just have to keep a check on it to see. We filled it tonight I am going to see if there is anything under it before i move it tomorrow and after i parket at work a while.



{May 23, 2018}   Hope After All

Thank God we have an oil cooler. I was able to meet up with my good friend today and he found the oil cooler. It is under the truck with the felter. It is over twice as much at the parts store so he is ordering it and it should be here by Friday.

But he still says I need to get it up for sale and sell it quick. Because of all the oil ran through the cooling system it is going to cause seals and things to start leaking.

He says that if I sell it and have money in hand he can find me something decent the same day. But what he is talking about is a car or mini van or whatever. I really need something with more room. I am willing to go back down to a Expedition for a while. I will lose some space but still have room.

I just have to have something lined up and money to pay everything when I sell this one.



{May 21, 2018}   Love My Good Friend

My Good Friend messaged me at work last night and said there maybe a small shred of hope for my truck after all. He had me go out and get under it and take some pictures for him, but I wasn’t able to find what he was looking for. I was supposed to meet up with him today so he could look at it but it has been raining here for days and today was no different and he been busy. He checked it in the rain for me the other day because we couldn’t get a break from it.

When he looked at it he said he was going to do some research and see if there was anything else that maybe goes on these trucks that would cause the problem I am having. Because some cars and trucks are known to have problems that cause crazy things to happen that normally shouldn’t or a design flaw of some kind.

When he looked it up he found somewhere that told him that sometimes on these trucks they put the oil cooler by the filter under the truck instead of where we thought it was to start with. That is what he was wanting me to get pictures of, the filter and where it all mounts up under there so he could see of he seen one or not. But I was at work and trying to watch the store being the only one there and under the truck and everything else. I didn’t get the right thing. I was going to meet him today or try but again with the rain we were stuck.

Hopefully he will have time to meet me at his new shop where he can get it in out of the rain and check it over. I pray it has the cooler down there and that is all the problem is. If not it is pretty much back to needing a motor.

I am just so thankful he is taking time out of his busy life with three jobs t kids and normal life stuff to help me. Because I can’t even ask boss right now really because of all the stuff going on there. I haven’t even told you all about that yet with everything that has been going on and being sick. Maybe tonight or sometime soon.
