Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
I've been stepping my foot into the waters, and ways, of the auto repair world. I looked into buying my own pump from a couple of places. coincidentally I received a coupon in the mail from Midas, for complete auto care, and $25.00 off coupon for a repair.
I Found one within the five mile limit AAA will tow, without charging.
Then I talked with a guy and found out the price to fix the pump, at Midas.
Then it dawned on me, I still hadn't tested the pump, per your instructions.
So I called him back and asked if they will check the pump? Or assume I know what I'm talking about then fix it. Along with that brought up a good point about me bringing my own pump. He said if they change it, and it doesn't work they would have to charge me again for labor. That part makes sense, but he said auto zone is known for a few bad parts? do you know of this?
They charge $29.00, (which explains their 25 off deal.) to check it.
I agree, that paying for their pump is the practical thing to do. Because the cost is not that much more than theirs..
Well I've decided to actually take the steps you suggested to determine if it is. After going in and out a million times (getting the flash light. Then to find frickin' batteries, then I shine the light. I think to myself, "Hmmmm.......................................... ..................................................
WHERE IS THE WATER PUMP LOCATED?
It was morning when my friend showed me the rust stains under the pump. But can't seem to find it.
And that is really sweet (now you know I'm a girl) that you asked how things are doing. It never hurts to know some one, that knows about cars.
Thanks again, Kirsten
You are not going to find it without taking some part off first, because its behind the timing belt cover. which will be very costly when they replace it, it would be a very good idea to let a auto repair shop test it first. and also ask them to replace the timing belt too while their all it will cost is the belt price.
