I wanted to say thanks for the comment yesterday about my truck. It's very cool to hear opinions from readers of the blog whether mechanics, tour guides, home repair, docs etc...The timing belt broke in my pickup yesterday. Max called and says they are also replacing the water pump and flushing it out. apparently there has been some leaking of water and that might have been near the timing belt etc etc. also they're replacing a "serpentine belt" whatever that is. ha. So yeah I said go right through with it, they are also doing an oil change which I'm overdue. also asked them to check the plugs and wires.. ouch. My ball joints are still worn out and need to be replaced the front end. they want another $800 for that, which I told 'em I'd have to wait for a few more paychecks on that one. BLAH.
ok well that's my truck update. now I got my buddy S picking me up from school tonight I just need to find a ride there, all my local car rental places had no cars until after 5pm today. go figure. :)
