Still Here....

It seems expansion tanks for Mazdas are all in Toronto. They sent for one and it will be here around noon today. They will replace it along with the thermostat and see if that fixes the problem. If it does then we will get Brooks and Linda to drive us to pick up the car when they get home from work and we will be home by 9 or so. If they have to dig deeper then we will drive Linda's car home and they will drive our car home on Saturday. We are in the hands of fate.

Home Again!

The garage called to tell us the car was ready at about 3:00. We borrowed Linda's car to drive to the station to pick it up. The tab for a new expansion tank, thermostat, 2 radiator caps and antifreeze was $620. Ouch!


  1. Oh, boy, we're in the same boat. Can I laugh or do you want to cry? :)

    Keep me posted; there's no sense my arriving in Campbell River ahead of you.

    Good luck!

  2. The repairs worked and they told us we were "lucky it only cost $620".

    We got new expansion tank, thermostat, radiator caps (2) and antifreeze. Most of the cost was labour.
