So after bragging to my brother about how he’s had all this work done on his car (engine had to be remounted under the hood, axle boots, timing belt, etc), I finally had something happen to mine. Last year it was the brake cable that basically broke in the dead of winter, this time it was the ignition lock. I got into the truck and tried to start the shit – and the key wouldn’t turn. I figured it was just cold and tried heating up my key with a lighter. That didn’t work. Gave it some WD 40. That didn’t work.
$200 for the repair and at least 1 day missed from work, depending on if I can get a ride tomorrow. Great.
