Take another look at the passage:

Baking in his hot car during rush-hour traffic, Joe slurped up the last few drops of his iced tea. And hoped that after this week's paycheck he could afford to make the costly repair to his broken air conditioner.

You chose to use a comma to connect the lonely verb fragment to the main clause in front, like this:

Baking in his hot car during rush-hour traffic, Joe slurped up the last few drops of his iced tea, and hoped that after this week's paycheck he could afford to make the costly repair to his broken air conditioner.

Unfortunately, you do not need any punctuation to connect these two parts. Review the rules.
