It's been many years since I've had a car break down on me, but it happened. I was running an errand with the GSR and it simply quit. After several attempts to get it started again I finally quit and called my wife to come pick me up.

This video is the story of that experience and how I overcame it.

Come to think of it, it's probably not a bad idea to make an ETCG video about what to do in a break down. Once I finish the Fairmont I think I'm going to look into that.

Here's the video I did of the ignition coil repair
Chapter 7 Potentiometers pages 10-15
