Not a great day here in Austin. We went out to start up the vans and get some work done today, but our van decided to get cantankerous. Started it up and there was a serious "rattling" noise. Went to shut it off, and while the engine quit running, the rattling noise continued. I even pulled out the key at one point and the rattling continued. After a few minutes for turning it on and off, the engine quit and the noise ended. We suspect that the "rattling" noise might have been the starter. When I would turn off the key and the engine stopped but rattling continued and then turned the key back on, the engine would restart immediately. At any rate, the van has been towed to a Ford dealer, but it will be midweek of next week (according to their estimates) before we can get the van back. So, we get to sit around for a number of days.
