It was fairly cool today - about mid-40's and right now it is 38 degrees. However, next week is suppose to be in the 60's again.
I took my car into the Chrysler dealer in Springfield for an inspection, since she has so many miles now and the service book said it needed to be inspected for a few things at this many miles. So, after the inspection, they replaced the timing belt (which included replacement of a few things, including the water pump, antifreeze spark plugs and wires, ) and during the inspection, they also found that the lower control arm bushings had split and were metal to metal (steering arms) So, it went from a 3 figure job to a 4 figure job. They did save the parts so that my husband could look them over and he agreed - it needed all that work. Well, that was an expensive gynecological appointment for my car - but she is in good shape now! Oh, by the way, the hazardous waste disposal fee for the antifreeze was $32.00 - which was more than the actual new antifreeze they put in - doesn't that seem backwards or strange?!
Well, gee, that's all the good news I have for you today.
