I was driving from Houston, Texas to Oceanside, California when I started hearing a rattling noise from my engine then KrrrrAAA, my shift knob was vibrating like no other, pieces of iron hitting underneath my car, stuck on the side of the road, I managed to turn it back on and made it to a long patch of dirt on the exit of Sierra Blanca when I saw flames flickering off the side of the car. Then I paid to get my car towed here to an hotel in Van Horn. I had a KA24DE with 190k miles on it. I maintained every single thing outside the engine as much as possible. Does anyone around here have a spare KA haha... :-/
