Day not starting well

We were going to go to our seniors exercise class and were going to have take the old diesel truck since the car is in for service. Brought it up to the house and came in to get our water to take to class with us. While I was inside getting the water the truck quit running and won't restart. Waiting on the tow truck now.

I used to enjoy messing with my vehicles, back when I knew what everything was and could see everything without removing half the stuff under the hood just to see the sparkplugs

I too remember when there was room to work inside the engine cavity. Heck, I crawled inside with an old Ford truck I owned.
Now I have a Mercedes that the engine has to be lifted to get to the spark plugs.

Ummm, I could be wrong, but I don't think old diesel trucks have spark plugs.

Sorry you have two vehicles down right now. That is a bummer.
