I never thought I would buy a truck or car with out looking at it first. I got caught up in the bidding and bought it. I only paid $1500.00 and the truck runs, drives, stops and is in ok condition. I went to pick it up this evening. When I saw it for the first time I was relieved it was a little better than what I was expecting. I paid the guy and he left. I met him at a gas station near his house. He lives about 1.5 hours away from me. I go to fill the truck with gas and the gas pump won't pump except for on the lowest speed. The filler neck on the gas tank doesn't look factory so I guess I will just have to take my time filling. Gas tank #2 doesnt work. So as I'm filling it up I see gas running out from under the truck. So I guess the #1 tank has a big leak or the fuel lines need replacing. Well after I stop pumping and a minute goes buy the gas stops leaking. So I'm thinking to myself no big deal I will work on this problem later. I start the truck and now it is dark. I turn on the lights and pull out. I drive about a half mile and the lights go off. So I pull over and find a wire bypassing the high beam switch was loose. I jiggled the wire the lights came back on. I drive about 100 feet the lights go out again. This time when I jiggle the wires nothing happens. Now I am trying to sneak this truck home with the tags off my F150 so I don't really want to draw any attention to myself. I can see a store up the road so I drive there and park in there lighted parking lot. I carry tools all the time in my 2004 F150 but I didn't bring any tools with me because my brother drove me to pick up this truck. Luckily the store sells pliers and a flashlight. I commence to check fuses and completely cut off the plug for the high beams and strip the wires and bypass the plug. No luck. So I end up leaving the truck on the parking lot with a note in the window that I will be back tomorrow. I had to pull my tags off so I can drive my other truck. Hopefully it won't get towed, the folks at the store know my situation. I didn't get home until midnight and my brother live about a half hour from me so he isn't home yet. What a mess. I'm thinking I might call some towing company's in the morning and if it is under $250 to tow it home I just might do it. Because i can't afford to miss mowing lawns tomorrow. I carried 5 lawns from today over to tomorrow so I could go pick up that truck today. Oh well not asking for any advise I just wanted to vent. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
