I know all this doesn't matter in the big picture. In a few years, this won't even be a memory. For now, it sucks.
My neighbor came over and looked at my car today, but they were getting ready to go out so he was all dressed up nice. He said the only way to tell for sure where the radiator water is leaking is to get underneath, but he's not a mechanic, just seeing if it was going to be an easy fix. I am going to see about getting it in the shop at our little town if they even still do that kind of work. My neighbor wasn't sure. He thinks its probably the heater core, which means that the whole dashboard and everything will have to come out. Its a 1989 car, so I would hope it would be easier to work on than the newer cars. I just can't afford to go out and get something else. I called about some cars today. One person wasn't home, and the other one looked like a pieced of junk, but I thought maybe I could afford it. The lady I talked to wanted about 12 times more than I was hoping to pay, so even an ugly car is out of my reach. :(
I am afraid to touch anything. I came in the house to get me something to eat and the freezer door wouldn't shut. I felt like I was on candid camera. It wasn't blocked, I felt all around the door and it felt normal. I had my kid go get my stepmother next door. Thank God I had the foresight 3 1/2 years ago to get a new hinge for the bottom of the door when I had to replace the top one. She just started taking it apart. I learned more about how to do it than I ever cared to know, but at least it didn't cost anything to fix. We had to turn the water off, since the bottom hinge has the water going through it into the door for water and for the ice maker. We got through it, but I missed Dr. Phil. Life goes on.
I am tired of everything turning to shit. Pardon my language. It has to get better, right?
God Bless, and God Bless honest mechanics. I sure hope I can find one.
