Interior of Car Behind Them on Freeway:
Father: Look kids! It's a (squinting) Tide-cel
Daughter: (Rolls eyes) I think that's a Passat dad.
Father: Oh yeah! I know that one ! That's the car Dodge makes fun of in it's ads!
Son: I think TDI means it's a diesel
Father: A diesel?!? Like a semi?
Son: (Goes back to Nintendo DS)… »
It wasn't until I got home and saw the river of red that my car had left in the garage over the weekend that I knew.... THIS is why the power steering pump is whining bad and I just topped it off a week ago.
The leak is bad. Hopefully the lack of pump churning will not only cease the noise, but will also slow the flow.
Gave the Camry a wash, changed the oil and filter (looked fine for 1300 miles overdue), got the original spare out of the trunk and put in a newer than 1998 tire in there, added some bling and mounted my fire extinguisher in the trunk. Can never be TOO careful.
Oh, and I also trimmed the rubber floor mat where it was… »
