My Montero is back…

It was dead… and now it’s not. That’s a nice thing about cars. As long as they’re not crinkled into oblivion, they can be brought back to life. Regarding the fate of my Montero, the cost of bringing it back from the brink was pretty high. But in the end, I deemed it worth it since this is a car I want to have forever. I want my daughter to drive it someday. And I know that it’s ultimately worth it for me to but a hurting on my wallet so that the Montero can continue to roam.

What happened to cause all the pain? Basically, every bearing in the cradle did a silly dance and would up in a shape that was less than ideal. Ozzy’s Automotive in Bell Gardens, CA found a replacement engine, swapped on some fresh parts to that engine, and got it snugged up in the nose of my Montero. While it was there, I figured now is as good a time as any to also reseal the transfer case.

It’s never sounded or felt so smooth. The Montero is in a good place. And I aim to keep it that way for a long time to come. I’m selling a new shirt on Blipshift to commemorate the whole affair. Well, part commemoration and part please help me offset the amount of AmEx points I just earned getting this brick back on the road.
