God damn truck takes like 9.75 quarts or something stupid, after seeing the abuse the chemical plants put royal purple through with pumps that run 24-7 that’s all I’ll buy anymore, plus I figure the reliability engineers have done the homework on what oil to run

No issues since I charged the battery months ago, car started with no issues. Now today, she left me stranded. I accidentally stalled it after someone made a sudden stop rolling in first gear. Car died and won't start back up. Guess I'll just replace the battery this time. Sucks, gotta wait 1.5 before the tow truck gets here. Thinking about rubbing one off because I'm so bored.

Maybe I'll see if he can just jump it and see if I can get the car home on it's own. The odds of me stalling it twice in one day seem very remote.

And to top it off, I'm stranded in a construction zone and getting coated in dust after just having washed and clay barred the car.

it wouldn't start dumping the clutch at a slow roll?

Randomly started, drove to nearest place to buy battery. We'll see if this does it.

Battery tested fine again. But they agree that since it sat for a couple winters without disconnecting, it may be toast.

Just gonna swap it and hope for the best.

should have asked the construction workers to stand in front of you, it would have instinctively started up.
