Vehicle Repairs

Whether the need is great or small, there is power in prayer, especially when God's people raise their voices together.

Vehicle Repairs

#1

Post by carlson1 » Thu Sep 06, 2018 11:54 am

On my way to the doctor and stopped to get a haircut. I came outside from the barbershop and my F-250 would not start. It sounded as if the starter was just stuck on. I have called AAA and they will carry it to Grand Prarie Ford.

Here is the prayer request. Please pray whatever it is will cost less than $400 or I can’t get it fixed. I have had some medical bills in the month of August and I am trying to make the co-pay for the PET Scan that is scheduled for my heart.

Thank you in advance.

Thanks my friend. I almost called you today, but I was in between a rock and hard place and the dealership was right around the corner. I called this evening and they have not even looked at it yet. I didn’t mention it in the OP, but I had just filled up with diesel about 20 minutes before the problem. I am praying it is a fuel problem and will not be expensive to fix.

If the starter was staying engaged it's an issue with the solenoid.
My friend still has his shop down on 30. I think you may have been there once. He may have a good used 1 that m8ght get you by.

The tuck was the beginning. Our refrigerator has now quit, and my lupus has flared up to the worse yet. Laying in bed trying to put ice packs on the parts that feel hot and burning. I have a funeral to conduct this week so please pray for healing.

God has a reason and I am not sure I will ever find out, but I hope he sends a some relief soon. :lol::

A lady I worked with uses CBD oil for her lupus says it works wonders. She ended up quitting 3 of her meds because it worked so well. I'm not saying it will do the same for you, but If you haven't tried it it might be worth a shot?

Update: I am not up to $2,544.00. Yours stupid put gas into the tank rather than diesel. They don't think I ruined the fuel system, but I sure didn't help it. Sixteen years of a diesel truck and I did this. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: Going to the bank this morning for a signature loan. Pray it goes well.
