Another victory for the "Ignore it till you can afford it" school of automobile maintenance

Something happened to my car between the time I parked it in the garage last night, and when I backed it out to drive to work this morning. I could feel the difference before I'd driven two car lengths.

My car, for no apparent reason, seems to have...gotten over itself.

For the first time since I bought it (going on six months ago), the car moved forward in direct proportion to how hard I stepped on the gas.

And then there's this other thing, where I'm driving along a flat stretch and don't have to continually accelerate. That was pretty cool. I didn't even realize I was missing out on that one.

I'm a little perplexed, but the car is cordially invited to keep it up.

Maybe my Mom finally stopped haunting YOUR car.

Can you make my car stop making that noise?

Yeah, but I charge extra for that.

You've obviously been visited by Greasy the Car Fairy.

From experience I can tell you that it's wise to leave a tithing of cookies on the garage floor, just so he doesn't un-fix it.
