Well yeah, we had just got the power steering pump replaced and it was doing just fine when, lo and behold, the shift cable gives out. Can't win for losing with cars. This all happened last night too! We parked the car and worked on getting the power steering pump done and when we got in it to test it we had no gears, well only 3rd and 4th. My dad hopefully is going to figure out if he can fix it. He can make a new cable and put it in, I hope. If not then I have to yet locate a cable to buy and the last one was at a dealership in AZ and they wanted $200 for it! And this seemed to be the last one in the entire US of A! Dad's an auto body mechanic so if anybody can fix it it would be he! Oh yeah, we have another vehicle but it is also in the shop with a transmission problem. The mechanic there said he is going to work on it today. So Amanda and I are stuck with the "blue beast" (92 Dodge pickup) till somebody fixes something. Ain't life grand!
