Bless you and many thanks. Almost $200 later, they said it was 2 gaskets and a thermostat. I thought a hose busted. At least the charges didn't include the questionable "diagnostics." I think he was checking my knowledge base.
My rpm needle still wildly bounces when the engine is cold - but I did't tell them about it. It's an old, but very well maintained car. It's bound to have a few quirks.
The guy was rather condescending. When I dropped the car off and picked it up, he thought it was great sport to keep me waiting for no good reason. He wouldn't even acknowledge my presence. Even when another staffer tried to assist me, he insisted he would take care of me. I still waited and waited. I probably won't use them again. Besides the trust issue, I should not be poorly treated. I shouldhn't have to feel I need a gun toting man to make the mechanics behave. Were this not an emergency, I certainly wouldn't have used them. I won't recommend them either.
Many thanks again
