FocusFest caravan BREAKDOWN!

Sure enough, on the way to FocusFest, (while looking for a liquor store.) I heard a bang and. Then my car started sputtering to nearly stalling.


I barely pulled into some guy's driveway. The combined Greatlakes and Gump Crew caravans piled arond this driveway and the guys went to work!


We found out it was a wire that pulled out of the Coil-pack plug.


The tools came out and we crimped connectors to the end of the wires, cramed the wires into their places wiht electrical tape, and zip-tied it all to the plugs.

Thanks Jim and Jeff.

I wish my fix was that easy but unfortionatly most autoparts places I'm the middle of no where Arkansas close at 5 and the ones that stay open don't carry a coil over plug for a focus so you end up driving all the way to the distribution center in little rock to get the part needed to fix your car.
