There comes a time in every car’s life when it decides it needs to break. This week we had two cars acting up. First the boys convertible became became a ‘vertible (that’s a convertible that won’t convert). After a few hours of work, including pulling the backseat, Jonathan and Nicholas replaced the leaky, passengers side, hydraulic cylinder.
The job is really not a long or difficult one, it’s really just slightly inconvenient. It could be a lot worse!
Then later on Dad got back to the house and his car has overheating. Popped the hood to hear a loud hissing and see some leaking coolant (warm coolant is special smell). Turns out the culprit was a loose thermostat housing bolt. One of the boys tightened a bolt yesterday, but not the right one. They got the right one today.
