Breaking down on the interstate rules posted

So I'm driving home from work all speed demon, road rage style and I'm in the fast lane of "Interstate 80" doing 85 or so. I come up on this semi doing about 65, with a motor home next to it doing about 70.... the far right lane was open, so I punched the gas to the floor to dart accross 3 lanes in between a motor home and the truck behind it... As soon as I hit the gas my car jumped once (cause the turbo kicked in hard)... and then it jumped right back down, vibrated, and just wanted to coast for the rest of the day. Luckily, I still had enough speed to squeeze through the hole and over to the right lane. I then coasted off the shoulder, parked and started calling for rides.

After I got a hold of my uncle to come pick me up, I got out of the car and opened the hood to see what was wrong. It was an easy fix, the second little jump was the intake hose busting out of it's clamp.

My uncle took me to the store, I bought a clamp and a screw driver, and fixed it on the side of the interstate. And now I'm finally home and hungry.

  • you should of just put a rag in the gas tank and lit it on fire, then just collect insurance. it would be easier then fixing it
