Default Confession time !

I have a story to tell that has upset me !

It must of been a couple plus months ago that no doubt after doing my morning things like taking my morning crap , posting on this site , getting my stuff around and while driving to work , my prize '94 Pontiac Gran Am with the wannabe corvette engine , quit on me , while I was going to work at about 3.45 AM as I was going about 60 miles an hour .

I still made it to work thanks to calling home and waking up my wife since I do have a cell phone with me , but had the car towed home , thinking I blew something !

Well it startd , but when I tried to move it , it quit and wouldn't start .

Today I put the charger on it for about 3-4 hours and it started and I moved it around some , as I don't trust my beloved work car !

Now I don't know exactly what to do as the engine runs good with no sign of any damage , it might be the battery shorting out , but don't know !

Here's a photo of my prized vehicle , it shows the side where I took out a deer from crossing the road , nice dent behind the front wheel !

What would you do ?

when you say it wouldnt start did the motor turn over but wouldnt start. I'm wondering if it might be a fuel problem. I had a problem one time. the car would idle but when I gave it gas it would die. let it sat a while and it would do the same thing again. the fuel filter was cloged up.
good luck.

I've thought of that , as I never let the tank get close to empty , will change that come my vacation soon . It does start now , but I just don't trust it until I try it out when I know for sure !

I don't want to spent more on it than it's worth and I figure it's worth about $350 now , as it's got good brakes and tires on it though that doen't add any value on a beat-up 200,000+ mileage car !

Otherwise I might have to go to the support thread to get comfort !

Serious pinch the battery out of lovies car and I bet that'll fix the problem,can only be the lack of 3 things ???
1\Electrical and you seem to have that !!!!

2\Fuel and it's seems to run!!!

3\Air and that seems to be there as well

I'd change the battery first as once you charged it up the motor ran O.k
best of luck with that Old mate!!!!

I believe more in shot placement , than broadhead brands !

I've used Rage , both two bladed and three bladed , then I read an article of hunters finding that they open up if you hit a branch or something while moving your bow around , it happened to me and I switched !

I don't have any claymores , as Uncle Sam never allowed me to handle any , so it's got to be slugs then , but I do shoot a Hoyt so no doubt that will work !
