Lows & Highs: Car Repair

Low: I tried to fix a car and my attempted repair did not work… On the bright side, I am confident I did not make it worse! One of our college student friends could not get her car to start on Thursday, so I tried to help by asking the same diagnostic questions my dad has asked me when my car wouldn’t start. I checked her answers with my dad and then met her at the college with my tools. The battery cables and terminals were corroded and I was able to clean off one but the other would not loosen. The car still would not start when we tried to jump-start it, so it had to wait for someone more experienced than me.

High: Brian had a math educators’ conference on Saturday so I had a girls’ day with the same friend. We highlighted each other’s hair, watched a movies, and had a fun time chatting.

  2. Glad you had good time after that trouble.Over time,car batteries become corroded causing them to malfunction.We can also use household items to clean automotive batteries, though professional corrosion-removing spray are also available at local auto parts store.My husband use baking soda and water solution, a wire brush, a toothbrush and some petroleum jelly to clean the corroded battery and it works great.
