So finally almost $800 later car is running beautiful again.. Makes me wonder though if I really needed those damn radiator hoses 1st garage replaced! :/
My heart goes out to ya, it's things such as those that convinced me learning about auto repair was not beneath my dignity...and also convinced me that our government's insistence that we all be college-educated is largely a waste of time. Fixing stuff is where the money is. People who know how to fix stuff are smarter than college professors, too. Professors may be more intelligent, but repair people are smarter. (Dad explained the difference to me, years ago. According to him, I'm more intelligent than Sheldon Cooper but not as smart as Goober Pyle.) I should explain...in Dad's words, intelligence is what God gave you to work with; smart or stupid is what you do with your intelligence.
Think of it this way - hoses degrade, and yours would have needed replacement someday. At least you weren't sold new head gaskets and a transmission rebuild.
Somehow, people since 2005 have "issues."
I love helping people with problems. Biggest problem many people have is, trying to change the English language. "Issues" are NOT problems.
