Just as I feared!


The good news is the transmission wasn't damaged. After that it is bad news like a snowball.
I have to get a new rad, new transmission lines plus fluid, the engine has to be cleaned and I have to have a new thermostat. When the lines blew, water, transmission fuid and anti freeze all mixed together and my engine is full of a white goo. Parts, labour ($85.00 and hour remember) and taxes ( let's not forget the government, after all they just voted themselves a 25% pay increase) will bring the bill to about $1.300.00. Sorry, I just had to pause and wipe my mouth I gagged again.
I will be left with $37 in my savings account and I will have to borrow some money from Carl to get this done. Of course I hadn't finished my Christmas shopping, I have 5 minutes left on my phone and the car payment is due. If this is what you get with "good Karma" all the bastards out there had better watch out!

Yes, *sigh* it is a drag but what can you do? I'll survive...however,I am still royally ticked off. So this winter when I think of the vacation I would like to have been on I can go and sit in the car in my bathing suit and turn the heater up...roflmao
