Finally Got My Car Back!!



So frikin happy, got my car back today.

it overheated on me on my way to work last wednessday morning. left me stranded in 1 degree F weather. nearly lost my toes as i waited for my girl to come get me. car went into the garage later that day. But they couldnt look at it till monday, so it sat till monday and they looked at it. thermostat and thermostat housing went so they orederd new ones from the stealer they arived today and they installed it, pressure tested my coolant system checked for leakes drove it checked everything and now shes back in good running order.

Had to go a week and a day with out my car, left me stranded here at home all this time goin nuts.
