When it rains it poors

March 24th, 2007 at 07:30 pm

Well my a/c gave out I asked my uncle to take it to his friend the mechanic at the Toyota dealer and of course he hasn't. So I said to myself I will only ask once, so I drive to my mechanic and he was going to put anti-freeze in for free only to find out that the compressor is goneFrown Now I am looking at $200+ for a compressor and only God knows what in labor. My mechanic stated he was going to shop around first for a better price...keep your fingers crossed but I will not put off for a whole week; not in sunny hot FL. Now two weeks ago I went to the dentist,that was $330 and now I have an appointment on Tuesday which is another $330 (for the crown) next I had to pay my car insurance ($182) for 3 months and tuition is due mid April ($948) My EF has gone from $1800 to about a $1000 I am happy I had one but when it rains it poors. Now I am feeling down in the dumbs.

I was able to work some OT this week at my part time job so that hould help some with the crown, but I have got to get my car fixed ASAP

Oops, I forgot I added $1.35 to my challenge today
New total $1874.99

    You're right, these things seem to come in groups. But it sounds like you're weathering things fairly well. Hopefully there will be some better prices out there for you! I know it really puts me off when there are problems with my car. I hope it all gets worked out quickly. Stay positive !

    Thank goodness for the EF. I hope you find a good deal for your car. You will build up your EF again slowly and surely. Good luck..

    We have had the "vehicle gremlins" working on us over time also recently, so I definitely feel your pain. My husband was just quoted $1000.00 by our mechanic to fix a car we paid a total of $300.00 for! Last week we got on eBay auto and ordered all the parts (for a car probably older than you are) we needed for about 1/3 of what our mechanic could get them for here in town! That might be an option for you to look into. Spend a little time yourself just calling around and checking prices at local auto parts stores for the parts you need. Sometimes you can save ALOT from store to store on the same item.
