Yesterday my husband and my son J, spent about 6 hours working on my "oil leaking" car. They had to jack it up, remove the right front tire and a bunch of other assorted parts to try and figure out what was the problem. Towards the end of the evening, they did discover what was wrong. It was a small gasket that is near the oil pump thingy...( not really sure exactly where). The gasket is about 2-3 inches in diameter...and it had a tear in it.... which lead to the puddle of oil that followed me everywhere I went.
They called around to find the part and finally ended up calling the Toyota dealer because no one else had it. You know when you call the dealer for a part, it stands a great chance of being quite expensive! After getting through to the parts department (which was open until 6pm on a Sunday) my husband was able to locate the elusive gasket.
And when he asked the parts guy how much.... we were all pleasantly surprised when he said it was only $12.00! Awesome!! So he will stop by today after work and pick up two. Our other Toyota has the same kind of leak. Time to get all the cars up and running.
I am borrowing my daughter's car today.....Because "the change in status" is I have a job! Yep, this all took place before the long Thanksgiving weekend. I was checking my Emails and I had an offer for apart time job to teach ultrasound. It is only 3 days a week! And to tell you the truth... after this break from my last job I really did not want to go back full time. I went down to the school and talked to the program director and worked out all the details. All I wanted was to work about 3 days a week for now. It is amazing how God answers prayers!!
I am excited AND nervous about this new job.
