One of the things I hate in life is car trouble. I know very little about cars. And to be honest, I don’t really want to understand them. I just want to drive one. That works. I’ve been really diligent about regular maintenance on my Mazda because I paid it off a few years ago and am hoping it will last me a long time.
A couple weeks ago my car started stalling at stoplights. Then every time I stepped on the brake, even to turn a corner, my RPM’s would go so low the car would be on the verge of dying. So I sucked it up at took it to the mechanic this morning as the problem was quite obviously getting worse.
I just got off the phone with the mechanic, and although I understood about 20% of what he said, here’s what I got:
The main problem is the intake manifold … something.
Then there is my axel leakage … something.
And on top of that, some gasket cover … something.
I tried to listen to details, but all I really heard was the total = $740.
I don’t even know enough to know if I’m getting ripped off.
