Holy Canolli, Batman!
My car broke down on New Year's Eve. I noticed it acting up when I was parking the car at the rehabilitation/nursing home facility where my Mom had just been transferred to after being released from the hospital. This was like around 11:30 pm.
The next day, I called an auto repair service near where my car was parked. I told the mechanic it needs fixed. Someone came by to pick up the keys so that they could get the car.
Today, the mechanic called me and told me that the EGR valve needs replaced. When he told me how much it was going to cost, I just about fainted. $548!!!!
I am getting help to pay for it, thank goodness, because I need my car so that I can go see Mom every day while she is at the rehab facility before she is finally able to go back home. There is also a 14 year old I take to piano lessons once a week.
