Are there any good window places? How about Midas?
It's been awhile. Did you get my last confusing question?
Let me know you get this, ans I'll write a synopsis.
Talk to you later.
P.S. I have some real bad news. For the whole world as far as I'm concerned.
About my 12 yr. old Black German Shepard (I'm so sad)
Take care, Kirsten

If your smelling coolant than there is a leak. It is doubtful that this was caused by doing a break service. If you trust the Midas that did your brakes and have used there services regularly in the past with no problems than I don't see the harm in at least letting them take a look at the car to identify the problem.
It could be as simple as a blown hose, or it could be a radiator, water pump, or even an external head gasket leak depending on the engine size. You won't know until you take a peak.
Shocks you can get at any spares place, watch places like Supaquick and Speedy's, they have specials from time to time, two for the price of one type of thing. Midas and Autozone also do specials and advertise in their pamphlets. Sonny's in Actonville, Benoni are also pretty cheap. There are are places all over Gauteng that repair bumpers, try them or use the yellow pages and phone around the scrap yards. Last resort unfortunately is the agents but that will probably cost you lots of Rands.
Hello, this is an easy job. I like to remove the upper fan shroud to give me more room to work. TAKE A VERY GOOD LOOK at how the belt is routed, it looks simple but once it's off can be confusing. With a ratchet and socket or a box end wrench release the tension on the automatic belt tensioner. CAUTION don't let the wrench slip and bang your knuckles. With the tension released just remove the old belt and slowly release the tensioner. Don't just let it snap back. Place the new belt firmly and squarely in the grooves of the various pulleys and release tension on the tensioner again, then slip the belt around the final pulley and slowly release the tension again. I put the belt on the idler pulley last, (the smooth one).
Any shop ,should have a scanner that reads all codes. If Midas doesn't have the equip,they should shut down operations. Forget the dealer. In the future, forget the Midas and chain stores and find a good local shop before you need one. They skim off the easy work and now, your worse of than before,or had more than one issue, and they won't admit to the services they are capable of performing. Can't say they did anything wrong,you just have to continue on ,and work on the remaining issues. Best to forget Midas and not place fault anywhere, Just repair the veh properly and move on.
I would suggest that you take it to another shop and have the system checked by a technician.A good pad to install is wagner thermo quiet brake pads and have them check the thickness of the rotors also.A good technician will check your complete braking system to make sure there are no faulty parts.
hello, if the vehicle came with factory towing, i has the relay already....sometimes they ship however without the fuse. the fuse should be behind knee panel on driver's side labed TOW or TRAILER good luck, marty
Yup, the doo-hickey, thing-a-ma-jig, w/ copper coil in it is the alternator. I went into too big an explanation about alternator/generator. They are really the same thing. Yoww, quite the grotesque creepy on the job accident stories! Show it to the new employees and they run screaming out the door never to be seen again! If someone comes knockin' at my door w/ a 2foot broomstick handle stuck in the side of their head, I'll who it is (from the sound of the diesel engine, vw sound, thick cards in bicycle spokes, as a 97 chey cavalier pulls in the driveway.) curt
This is getting a bit confusing! If it is the water pump making the noise, use the 'stick listening' method described in my last post, as the H20 pump is one of the 5 (?) pulley components I want u to check, if safely possible. U shouldn't see a wobble in new pump. They could be telling u it's the compressor because they really think it is. Did u check BBB to see if they have any history of complaints? Curt
