My hotwater heater? Still not performing appropriately. Still tired of it. And now my car? …the beloved Stinkin’ Lincoln? Apparently needs a new EGR valve. The guy at Auto Zone showed me where it is. And, if we do it ourselves, the part only costs $51.00 plus tax. Trouble is? We Malones are not car fixers. We just aim to be car DRIVERS. Right now the Stinkin’ Lincoln likes to take a breather at every stop light. But, she cranks right back up after she goes ka-put. Well, so far, anyway. Let’s hope that lasts awhile!

I’ve eyeballed that EGR valve. It looks like something that’s held in by three bolts. Hmmmmmmmm. Wonder if I can get that old one off of there with say…ohhh, i dunno: A finger nail file one of those jar lid opener thingies?

Tune in tomorrow to see if I was able to loose said EGR valve from its current position!

I think I can, I think I can… … …
