My luck is getting worse

Ok so in the last month I have done the following repairs.
Water pump, fan clutch, belt tensioner assembly, starter, and now to add to the list Fuel Pump.

Ole Blue is really starting to make me mad. I just replaced the fuel pump a year ago. Guess what it is out of warranty. I can't get one till Friday at the earliest. Because tonight is Christmas EVE and tomorrow is Christmas day.

I got my mom's car so I can get to work for the next couple days. I got towed by a Dodge because my truck broke down on the side of the road. My buddy just happen to drive by me when I was sitting there.

I got personal issues that I have to deal with as well. I don't know how much more stress I can handle.


So you all have a happy holiday, because I will be in prison on Christmas.

I ain't getting rid of my 7.3L. Engine runs good and strong. It is everything else that is going down hill.

If someone wants to get me last minute gift. I would like a Fass Fuel System.

I know how you feel, in the past 3 months I 've put 2 waterpumps, the original one lasted 165,000 miles, the second only made it 14,000 miles.

Then I'm told the head gasket is leaking, take it to a shop, the head is sent out and i'm told that it is ok, get the truck back, starts losing water, this si when the 2nd water pump went out, got that fixed, STILL losing water, take truck back and 2nd head gasket is put in, still losing water, take truck back, now I'm told the head is cracked.

This is on my Dodge, I've owned this truck since May 1997, it runs circles around my Ford and I've got it set up for towing my trailers in my auto transport business.
