Sonnys Ford Taurus - lessons to be learned.
We got the UBelt back on, along with all the bolts (except for one). The car is a screamer!
As far as I can see, the transmission and engine are in great shape. I'll out run my F150.
If a guy at Pep Boys said the head gasket was blown on that car, he's wrong.
The lesson to be learned is, when you take your car to a mechanic, you should already know whats wrong with it.
From my experience, the auto industry constantly takes advantage of people.
Case in point: I had a $99 coupon for a complete brake job.
I was standing in line, waiting to get my truck serviced. While in line, I listened to the people talk to the service man. None of them got the $99 special. They all had other problems that would cost over $400. The coupon was a lie.
