Ah crap, another 2.3L bites the dust (not really)

I was just crusing down the street normally. What do I see when look down at the dash?

The little red light dimming on and off that indicates there is a problem with the power steering.

Steering wheel starts to get stiff and feels funny.

1 min later the oil light is flashing at face telling me my engine is dangerously low on oil pressure.

What comes next was the inevitable CEL and the car felt like it's going blow up because buckling like a bull.

I look down again and WTF do i see, a light that seems to tell me that my stereo is no longer working. I have no idea they had a light for this but maybe it's a light for something more important than the radio.

The engine stalled and I waited for a tow truck. sigh...

I think I will start shopping for a Corolla tomorrow.



BTW, I drove over a pretty big pot hole today hours before all this happened. All was fine at the time but then all hell broke loose after I parked the car and drove it a few hours later.

Re: Ah crap, another 2.3L bites the dust

ok...after the first light...you didn't pull over. drove for a minute....then the next light...
and then down it goes....until it stalls.

A corolla will do that too if you have so many things wrong with it.

sorry to hear about your misfortunes warranty maybe?!?!

Well I couldn't really make sense of what I was doing either at the time...

Maybe it's because it was such a nightmare.

Then I snapped out of it, woke up and proceeded to check and kiss my baby.

Yeah, I did hit a gigantic pot hole earlier yesterday then I went home and fell asleep on the couch. What a bad dream, I am glad my car is still well and strong. lol
