Hi folks, I just joined today to get advise on a repair. The last time I took a vehicle to a garage for repair of ANYTHING other transmission and warranty work was a long time ago. My first car was a 1969, maybe 1970 Toyota Corolla wagon hand-me-down. Even by then I was doing my own repairs. For whatever the reason my father was not into mechanics. So in exchange for being able to use the car, I maintained it. First major repair was replacing a cracked head. Never stopped after that. Thanks for having me here.
