So, having passed the test, I took my car out to get the oil changed, and then took it to the Carridge House and had them clean it inside and out. Car's looking great.
Unfortunatly, after driving it around town, it was becoming apparent that something wasn't right. The engine is running fine, but it doesn't seem to be going into gear very well. Once it gets going it's ok, but starting off the line is tough. So, I decide I'll just have a mechanic take a look at it tomorrow. The car had other ideas.
Eventually it just quit going into gear altogether. You can rev the engine all day and go nowhere. It sounds like it's not shifting out of neutral. Looks like it prolly needs a new clutch. Had it towed to a mechanic we know, we'll see what the damage is tomorrow.
Just weird. The car has been driven plenty of times since I bought it with no problems. Chose the day I get my licence to die. Only good news is that I got paid today, so I have money to fix it. Hopefully it is just the clutch and not the whole transmission...
