Extension Cord Assistance
There was an old truck parked near our house for a couple days after this weekend.The driver had tried jumping it and would show up at various times of day and night with friends and try to get it started. On Wednesday, I asked him what he thought the problem was. Turns out it was a diesel and those do not start in cold weather (it’s been in the 20’s). I asked if he had an engine block and if maybe all he needed was to plug it in. He lit up at the suggestion, and fortunately we had an extension cord long enough to reach from our house to under his hood. 30 minutes later it started right up. He was quite relieved as it appeared he could not afford to have it towed. He said not many people would go out of their way like I did. I like to think that’s not the case, and really, I didn’t feel I’d gone out of my way at all.
