On the road again

So the good news is that my car is fixed. It was a clogged EGR (exhaust gas re-circulation) something or other. Apparently, the engine mixes some exhaust with air to control the o2 level for combustion efficiency. When the thing gets clogged, you get too much exhaust and not enough o2, leading to not enough combustion to keep the idle going.

Now, I can no longer say that everything I know about cars I learned from Gran Turismo. (ok. Gran Turismo 2 if you want to be exact...)

My legs are tired.
