  • Essay On Truck Memory

    Memories of my truck I’ve had tons of interesting and stressful experiences with my truck. I first got my truck when I was 15 years old. It is a 05 Toyota tundra.

Then my mechanic and I finished putting all the parts to my truck back together. After that we needed to refill the cooling system in my truck so we put all the coolant and water back in the radiator. Finally we got to the last thing to do and that was to get all the air out of my cooling system but when we were letting the truck run and getting it to full temperature to make sure everything was working properly it has shut down all of sudden and would not start back up.
