Last week I spent 300$ getting the brakes fixed.
While on my way to get rid of 3 months of household garbage, ENGINE OVERHEAT came up on the dash, then the truck started juddering.
A test at a local garage shows fuel mixing in with the coolant - the head gasket has been blown, likely due to a faulty themostat, which was replaced for 250$. I spent another 15$ for a sealer, but it didn't seem to work.
I've got no wheels and no way to travel 100 miles to attend Pico Day.
So that's that. UPDATE: I'm going try flushing the radiator, and adding fresh sealant and anti-freeze myself... I wasn't happy with the way this unknown mechanic drained the system, maybe the second time will be the charm. If not, Pico Day is going to be the least of my concerns.
If it does work, I might barely able to make it. It's raining and windy outside, so I don't know if I'll have time today to try it OR if any one that lives close by, can help me get the stuff I need in town. Just hope I can pop the hoses with the few shitty tools I do have on hand
