Just when we didn't need anymore financial problems, the fuel pump goes out in the Sport-Trac! I know fuel pumps for GM truck aren't cheap, but Ford must make theirs out of gold! $293 at O'Reilley's with Dustyn's employee discount. $411 from the Ford dealer with our shop discount. We have a funeral to go to tomorrow, so Dustyn and I will be working on it late at the shop after that. Michelle needs it for her job on Wednesday. I had to run her around on her route today after we got her truck in the shop and dropped the tank. We can get the pump tomorrow and install it. This really stinks! Missed half a day of pay today, Will miss a full day tomorrow. Christmas presents wiped out our "stash-cash". I don't know where the money will come from. I'm just glad "Big Bertha" is holding up!

Well, it turned out it wasn't the fuel pump. The wiring harness has been hacked up. We think the fuel pump control module was damaged and burned up the wires and poorly repaired before we got the vehicle. We can't return the new fuel pump, now. The wiring is all removed the the fuel pump connection to the pump control module. I need to find a wiring diagram so we can properly fix it. I may need to get a new control module, too.

And yet, we never seem to have enough vehicles, always wanting more. What's the matter with us?
