The Taurus Lives…Ecto Testing


Hello everyone. I hope everyone is having a great night.

Well, I have received news on my cousin’s car. Turns out there is some sort of transmission problem. What we don’t know is how much damage has been done to the car and/or transmission. The mechanic believes that there is a leak due to a missing transmission dip stick. He has ordered one and it should be here Friday. We will know then if a leak is causing these problems. If it’s something serious, then we are in big trouble. It costs a lot of money to fix a transmission. Let’s hope it’s nothing really bad and let’s hope that there is no damage on the transmission.

On a lighter note, I think I found a good offline editor for blogging. It’s the first one I tried earlier. It’s called Ecto. It was sending empty texts windows. I’m not sure why either. It was really annoying. We’ll see how this works now. You can learn more about Ecto here: You get a 21 day trial upon download and it only costs $19.95 after that. It seems to work pretty good.

If this program works really well, I’ll write up a more thorough review later. Have a good night everyone. 🙂

Will The Taurus Live?

Hello everyone.  This will be my first real blog from WordPress!  So far I’m really enjoying my WordPress experience.  Anyway, that’s not what this post is all about.  😀

Anyway, I’m blogging about my cousin’s car.  I hope he doesn’t have a transmission problem.  :/  As I’ve blogged about on my other site, LittlePoopMachine, his car was having brake and accelerator issues.

As we were exiting the freeway and coming to a stop, the car jerked a little bit.  Now that’s nothing new as of a couple days ago, but the acceleration was a different story.  As we turned off the offramp and onto our road, the car jerked heavily as my cousin accelerated.  It felt like the car’s brakes weren’t disengaging.  I have a fair knowledge of vehicles and can identify small problems and whatnot, but when it comes to big stuff like this, it could be anything.

I just hope it’s not the transmission or gears.  We’ll have to wait until to tomorrow and see.  We dropped his car off at the shop and the mechanic said they’d look at it in the morning.  We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
