Did I Mention I Was Pissed?

Yeah, so I talked to Art Moehn’s service department today.

I wish I hadn’t.

Apparently, the broken water pump caused the timing belt to stretch — whether they’re directly related or if the overheating caused it, I don’t know — which caused (probably — they won’t know until they get into the engine) the pistons to tap the valves.

So I need a new cylinder head, new valves, a new timing belt, a new water pump, and a really really big fucking shotgun. And $3000. The shotgun is for the heads of the various service department MORONS at Howard Cooper — see previous entry — and M&M Honda in Kalamazoo, where we had our 90,000 mile service, and they MENTIONED THE WATER PUMP WOULD PROBABLY NEED REPLACING BUT DIDN’T OFFER US THE OPTION OF DOING IT AT THE TIME.

Did I mention water pumps cost all of $60? Sixty lousy fuckin dollars. You know where I’d like to stick that sixty bucks right now?

I smell a lawsuit. No, really. I smell a lawsuit. Anyone know a good lawyer I can talk to?
