Hangin at Point Lookout
We had Service Manager Jake and Mechanic Bobby stop by Friday to assess the situation. After checking things out and conferring with the other mechanics, it was determined that our Volvo transmission, although appearing to have been well maintained, had simply worn out. I am not sure what the average lifespan of a transmission is but this one appears to have lasted for approximately 3000 hours. we are hoping for a short layover while the trans is rebuilt. We have been told about a week and a half. Kat and I keep hearing the Eric Stone song "It'll be ready tomorrow". We were able to rent a car from Enterprise and head back to Deltaville and retrieve the truck so we could head back to work for Monday. That killed the rest of the day as it was a 6 hour journey.
