Thank you everyone! I appreciate your time, as much as the answer wasn't
quite what I wanted to hear! :)

This car has been a little frustrating this month. Twice in as many weeks it
has stranded my wife somewhere. That's a pretty bad track record... Good
thing that it's also just twice in the eight years that I've owned it!

Oh well, I guess I need to figure out something else for a while until I can
get it repaired. I finally got over the fever, but I'm still exhausted, so
it will be a while.

Thank you again, everyone!
