Recently I have been experiencing some trouble with my car.
Every time I turn on the heater, the car fills with smoke and there is a horrible odor in the air.
I’ve had to use the heater a lot the last couple of weeks, because it is extremely cold outside. The weather in Orland Park, Illinois is always cold and icy during the winter months. I would probably live anywhere else in the country, but my wife and I met here and her whole family lives in the Orland Park area. I make things work because I love my wife, but I absolutely detest the cold weather. When we met, I was in Chicago for a business seminar. My home base was in Florida, a long way from Orland Park, Illinois. The weather is much different here than it was at home. I remember my first winter here, because I had to go into town to buy a whole new wardrobe for the winter season. A light sweatshirt and pair of cargo pants weren’t going to cut it in the cold winter temperatures. Even though it’s been multiple years since I moved, the cold weather still gets me every year. I usually run the heater on full blast when I drive to work. Since I’ve had the issues with the heater, I’ve been taking the train instead of the car. I don’t want to break down on the side of the road when it’s 10 degrees outside. It’s much easier and cheaper to take the train and wait until the spring months to have a mechanic look at the car.
