The Taurus is back in our front yard after having the V-belt and AA-tensioner replaced due to heavy rain; pretty sure heavy rain is the culprit. A new rim and 4-wheel alignment was also part of the invoice repair for the Tarsus. The rim damage was located on the inside portion of the brim. Weights were attached to the rim which gave us a clue that the previous owner did not want to pay for a new rim. The car only had 16,000. miles on the engine and how in the world…..never mind. She must have been driving in hurry around the curb. We found a receipt in the car with her name on the ticket for a window switch repair in the glove compartment.
The PT Cruiser had the same V-belt and AA-tensioner replaced within the same thirty-day time span after the rain.
Who’s next for auto repair or a new water heater?
