Friday the 13th

EGR valve cleaning turnin into a big job. Lol
So I just put a couple of freelance writing checks into the bank, hoping to finally get caught up on the back taxes — and the “check engine” light came on. The auto shop said it was the EGR valve (part of the emissions control). So I drove to my mechanic’s to find out how much it would cost to fix it, and also to see why my A/C still isn’t working that well.

The mechanic claims the AC compressor needs both hoses replaced (about $400) and probably $300 for the valve. (He says the diaphragm is bad.)

I miss having the kind of mechanic who says, “Let me take it out and clean it first to see if I can get it to work.” This guy isn’t it, so I have to go get a second opinion somewhere else.

  1. As long as you drive an Audi, you’ll pay through the nose for frequent service and repair. The parts are horrendously expensive.

    It’s really the wrong marque for people on a budget.
