Yesterday afternoon we contacted the mechanic for an update, and he said that (wonder of wonders) he was able to get my car running, and that he even took it out for a drive and it seemed to be running well. You can imagine our surprise. The mechanic said he thought something had caused the pistons to seize, and after he put the, quote, magical mystery cleaning fluid, end quote, in it, it worked fine. He's going to try running the engine again this morning just to be sure that the problem is truly eradicated.

So this is great news, and yet more proof that God does work miracles, even on insignificant objects such as my car. We are not completely out of the woods, though, because we need to find out why the pistons would "seize," and the fix for that is likely expensive. There are a few other little things that need to be done, too, like replacing the brake pads. But the good news is it looks like we're not going to have to get a new engine. Yay!!

All this drama has made us realize that now is the time to sell the car, so once we get it back from the mechanic in decent running condition, we'll start advertising. And then we'll have to buy a new car, which I must admit is rather exciting.

So. Anyone want a 1994 Nissan Sentra with engine issues? Even if it doesn't run for you, it'll look cute sitting in your driveway. Just give me a call and we'll work a deal.

So we just found out that my car, which has not started in two weeks and has been in the shop for the past two days, probably needs a new engine. This comes at a particularly bad time, as we've had a lot of (necessary) expenses recently, and the funds they are running low. I know that God is taking care of us, and that will we not become poor and destitute, but right now it's hard to know what to do. We were planning to sell this car and get a newer, more reliable vehicle, but selling a car with no functioning engine? Not going to bring us the couple grand we need.

Your prayers are appreciated.
