They happen in threes…

Earlier this week I received an email from a friend at work reporting the death of her car halfway up the M6 to Scotland.

A few days ago da Widge also reported the death of his car.

Today mine has just taken to emitting a whining noise when accelerating in 3rd or 4th gear. I am reliably informed (by a guy who knows cars fantastically well) that I’ve lost a bering in the gearbox. This is either a job of replacing the gearbox (and anything else that the new gearbox requires eg new clutch or complete engine) or getting a new car. Suffice to say both are somewhat expensive. Oh yes and when I say ‘new’ gearbox I do mean salvaged from some other car.

Bugger, bugger, bugger.

Now I just wait for a quote and decide which I want to go for.
