three cheers for liquid aluminum.

i may or may not have told you, but last week, carlos got sick.
his check engine light came on and, like any good mother, i panicked.
i took him to a shop down here in provo on monday.
they told me his head gasket was blown
and it would be around $1300 to replace it or $4500 for a new engine.
i cried.
there was no way i had enough money for that.
i called my papa and he told me to bring carlos to our family mechanic.
so that's exactly what i did.
i took carlos to the doctor to get fixed and i got to relax at home for eight hours.
i had some delicious homemade guacamole
and took a {much needed} two hour nap in the hammock.
there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
it was perfect.
bill, the mechanic called.
i was two-gallons low on coolant in my three-gallon tank.
so they filled 'er up.
they also put some liquid aluminum product in carlos to patch up the problems.
they were able to nip it right in the bud.
and guess how much it cost me?
ninety-seven smackaroos.
that's what's up.
i hope your tuesday was equally golden.

oh!  and if any of you run into car troubles in the near future {which i hope you don't} call stagg automotive in bountiful, but only if you want a mechanic you can trust.
