The importance of an emergency fund

I swear we can’t catch a break. We can an emergency fund set up and then bamm, right away he have to use it. My van is acting strange. It’s idoling weird, almost pulsating. I told it was weird. Just got home from driving it and and one point the battery icon lite up. It’s very brief, like a flicker. We just bought a new battery for it 6 1/2 month ago so it can’t be that.

Do we have anyone who works on car in this group that could give me ideas as to what’s going on? It’s a 2003 ford winstar. I have a love hate relationship with the van. Sometimes for NO reason the interior lights will come on. I wish we had money to get something else.

UGH. I am so stress right now.
