So I picked my truck up from the mechanic's for the third time today. I made it to work (about 10 miles away) this time before it started doing anything crazy. This time it started spraying coolant everywhere. Luckily the mechanic sent a tow truck to pick it up and worked on it, turns out the water pump they put in with the new engine was defective. Hopefully the 4th time is the charm, I really want my truck back.

What was wrong with it? I know how that is, I'm at college right now, I really didn't want to have to find a different mechanic down here, but I was kind of forced to.

To be honest I have no clue what was wrong with it or what they did to it which is driving me crazy. At first they said I needed a new engine then they said nothing was wrong with it then they did some work on it and i don't know. My parents aren't telling me much aboat it and so I guess I won't find out whats going on till I get home. It was shaking like crazy and my cel was on so hopefully somewhere along the line that got taken care of. I know i didn't get a new engine but I have almost a grand into it. Its just frustrating being out of the know on my own truck.

Haha probably not, a couple months ago I left my truck with my parents to get an inspection while I was at a hockey game and on the way home my mom texted me and said that it cost $300. She wouldn't say what was going on that time either so I thought maybe they had something installed on it or something because my birthday was coming up. I get home and found out that the shop put on a new exhaust, which I'm pretty sure I didn't need.

Lol, I don't think I would let my parents take it to the mechanic anymore after that.

Seriously, but hey, at least you got something kinda cool out of it. May not be necessary, but its always nice to have. Man I miss my truck so bad, being able to drive it today was such a tease. I've been stuck in my girlfriend's Ford Focus, little 4 banger. To top it all off she's got all these necklace things hanging and Love stickers on the back, its embaressing. Especially considering I used to drive one of those, I would never go back to a Focus
