After a stop in Butler to install the emergency backup generator we drove through some sweet accumulating snow and landed in the m4 lot around 0415.

Alternator is not charging, or more accurately is barely charging. All normal and some extreme troubleshooting methods were ineffective.

Trans has some sort of issue. Pretty sure it’s not getting adequate air pressure, and quite sure it’s in the range box. It can get into 2 gears and jam itself. This is annoying at a level toll booth. It is catastrophic at a stop light on a hill in Penn Hills PA. I almost abandoned the return trip after buying the generator when it happened a second time in as many stops, throwing distance from Stumpf. Decided there were very few stops left and none on hills so let’s just do it.

Short list of extreme importance: trans jamming issue, oil change, one crunchy coolant hose in particular, headlights, wiper blades, batt charge issue.

Secondary but important: running cool. Little heat. Low fan speed too. Couple dash backlights out. No dash idiot lights. Tires. Other fluids & filters.

I dictated some things on the way as not to forget them. I think I’m missing a couple here.
