Today I was driving across Mercer Island on my way to pick up something in Bellevue, and the little red warning light in my dashboard started flashing. Given that I blew up the car I had when I was 16 by not heeding the warning of a similar little red light, I pulled over and drove to an auto shop. They told me I'd blown my head gasket. Having researched VW Vanagons at lenght before buying this one, I knew what that meant...a couple grand. Merry Christmas, eh?
So I had the AAA folks tow it to my real mechanic, Ray at the VW Tec Shop, who I love, and he told me it was just a leaky fitting and a bad hose! Yay!!!!!
Thanks to my mommy for coming and rescuing me. And can I just tell you that when you own a VW bus, AAA is absolutely essential, and so is having a mechanic you trust.
