This morning, I was awake, but not up yet. I had to make a phone call to Brakes Plus right at 8 o'clock. On Saturday, coming home from Lone Mountain, the front end of the Jeep would wobble at 50+ mph. When I got home, I checked the wheels, and the right front wheel was to hot too touch.
Made an appointment to take it in at 11 o'clock. I took it in and as I was walking home with Yuma, Kay, with Gary and Lisa drove up the street and asked if I would go with them to Mesa. Kay was on a hunting trip to get something replaced and so Yuma and I tagged along.
The battery light was red and I think I went along to help push the car off the freeway if it quit on her. She had jumper cables and an extra battery with her just in case. So, we were prepared! Nothing happened, and we made it the 50+ miles to Glendale and back without a hitch. Phoenix with the surrounding cities is huge. It was interesting to see a train of transient carts parked along the sidewalk.Kay said, they would park them there during the day and then move them to their sleeping grounds at night.
Brakes Plus called while we were out, so Kay dropped Yuma and me off and I picked up the Jeep. They said they checked it out and drove it and could find nothing wrong with it. Tomorrow, I will drive it for 60 miles or so and if the problem happens again, I will take it right in so they can check it out. Hopefully, it somehow adjusted itself and I will never have the problem again.
|Hot tub home and ready to put on the patio.|
I was very sore this morning and could hardly walk, but as the day went along, I started feeling much better and now feel pretty much back to normal. Still have the old bounce back!
My plans at this point are to pack on Wednesday and leave for home on either Thursday or Friday. I'm only packing what I need this time and leaving the rest for my return in the Fall. No U-Haul required.Thanks for stopping by.
Trust all is well with the Jeep. Are you going to wait for a well deserved soak in the 'cuzzi?ReplyDelete
Drove the Jeep a little today and all went well. Tomorrow will be a better test. I'll be gone before the hot tub is up and going.Delete
So, w6hen does the hot tub get installed?? Hopefully, things are all straightened out with the jeep and your test run goes well. Yuma looks like he was enjoying the nice green grass.ReplyDelete
Not sure when the hot tub will be installed. Took a 20 mile drive late this afternoon and all went well with the Jeep.Delete
Hope the jeep problem has fixed its self, but still need to keep an eye on. I agree taking it for a good run to see if it happens again, is a good idea.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Bill. I think the pad was stuck and released itself. The brake pedal felt different today when l took it for test drive. I'll give it a good test tomorrow.Delete
I have decided to pour a new pad for the hot tub so it likely won’t be up until May. I have a lot of projects going but when Doug comes back in the fall it’ll be ready for him.ReplyDelete
I am looking forward to my time in hot tub. Wish you the best on your many projects.Delete
You might want to pick up an inexpensive infrared thermometer, so you quickly check the temp of all wheels, the pistol type. Try Harbor Freight. PhilReplyDelete
Thanks for the idea, Phil.Delete
Going all is week with the Jeep. Good luck with the test run.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Patsy.Delete
Got my fingers crossed for the Jeep. Much better not having to tow a U-Haul.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Nancy. I will be free to explore on my way home without a trailer. Looking forward to the drive.Delete
So does that comment, not taking everything mean the WL is going to get fixed? Glad the Jeep is healing thyself, it does happen on occasion.ReplyDelete
I'm hoping! Dean is a past diesel mechanic and has volunteered to dig into and fix the engine this summer.Delete
