⛽ It wasn’t the battery…

While the main issue was not the battery, it still needed to be replaced. Over the weekend, I went to the Mac in the morning, and when trying to leave, my truck did the same thing where it would not turn over.

I ended up calling Nicole and having her pick me up and take me home, where I could call around and get it towed to Docs Automotive in Okemos, as they had done work for me in the past.

Initially, I thought it was the starter since it didn’t sound like it was engaging or cranking things over, but after the tow truck driver showed up, he spent a bit of time trying to diagnose the issue and thought it might be the fuel pump causing the problem.

I waited until Monday morning for Docs Automotive to open, and they called me about an hour after, letting me know it was indeed the fuel pump that had died. I had them replace it as I needed to get the truck back on the road before office work this week. They had it completed by about 2 pm Monday, and I was able to pick it up and be back on the road.

While I am not excited about the recent repairs, it is nice to know I have a new battery and fuel pump, which should last me until I am ready to get into something new.
