    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I had a nice day planned. We were going to meet my Mom, go shopping, and eat lunch out. We loaded up the car - and - it wouldn't start. Great.

    DH's on his way home from work, and we are hoping it's just the battery. In any case, hopefully it won't cost too much....

    This has happened several times to me - we have AAA and a really nice guy came and jumped the car.

    Sending "cheap/easy" vibes your way!

    Back on the 4th of July, me and the kids were heading to grandma's for the day (DH had to work and would meet us there later). On the way, I realized my speedometer wasn't working and it wasn't shifting gears (it's an automatic). I pulled into a parking lot and called my dad. He came and bought some transmission fluid in case that's what the problem was (don't know how that would have fixed the speedometer but whatever). Didn't work so I followed him home. Luckily, my parents' neighbor works on cars and agreed to look at it. $160 later it was fixed. Don't know what we would have doen without my parents' neighbor as it would have cost at least 3x that at a shop.
