Bad news, on Saturday the heater core let go, puking coolant all over the passenger floor. Good news, it all drained out through the holes in the floor.
Good news, I removed the heater hoses and capped them. Bad news, the only caps are “Help” brand and they are shit. It broke, puking coolant all over the place.
Good news, AAA. Bad news, they sent a wrecker instead of a ramp. My brother was driving at the time with 4 passengers, they had to wait 90 minutes...
Good news, I removed the heater hose nipple and replaced it with a pipe plug:
(really crappy pic out of focus with pipe plug in background)
Bad news, Kinja is not letting me line up my text and pictures.
Good news, I drove it to work today and so far no leaks!
