3rd time this month? YDI, there are other ways of getting to and from work, without needing your unreliable car. In the days of Lyft and uber, help is but a button push away!
Some advise my dad gave me, you have two options in buying a car. You can get a car so new that it doesn't break down, or a car so old that's it's easy to fix. I'm going to assume that you're unable to afford a new car. So find something that you don't have to worry about an expensive computer failing. These cars my not be as nice or have all the bells and whistles, but they are simple. A large portion of their problems can be fixed with a simple tool set in a drive way.
I've been in a similar situation once when I lived in California. Driving home from work, middle lane & my car dies. I call for a tow & wait. Dusk has passed & it's basically dark, no lights in my car work. Honking ensues, eventually someone stops & pushes my car to the side while I wait. Besides that 1 person no one besides one woman just before the tow arrives asks if I'm ok/need help, that's California for ya I guess? Hope things improve with your car OP!
I only stalling in rush hour traffic once before I learned how to keep my car going. Fill the oil and check the gas every day. And set the points and timing every week.
You shouldn't have to set points and timing unless you live in the 70s. Even still, every week?! Timing should be fine for years after its set, and points on an annual basis.
