And just like that....

My car is fixed. Go figure. It hasn't run for a week so we finally had the tow truck come today to take it to the shop. In order to get it onto the tow truck, they asked me to put it in neutral and roll it out of the garage a little bit. And don't you know, as soon as I turn the key, the darn thing started up! Boy was I embarrassed! I turned it off and on a couple of times and it fired right up every single time. I apologized over and over to the poor tow truck guy, who had come out in the snow and sleet on a super busy morning.

I drove it to the shop anyway, just to have them look it over and they pronounced it completely fine. Said that possibly the engine was flooded and that sometimes that happens when it's really cold.

Cost us $50 to find out nothing is wrong; but I guess that's better than what it could have been, right?
