Yesterday on my way home from work early, my car had some problems. First, it sputtered and died in the parking lot. Then it died while in traffic, on a bridge no less. I got through the bridge, and waited 20 minutes for a tow (which isn't so bad.)
Got it towed to where the radiator was replaced a few months ago. Waited for a while for Beth to drive me home.
Turns out that the radiator hose had a pinhole leak in it that sprayed water on the distributor cap. Water pooled in the cap, causing it to short out. So, that has to be fixed with a new radiator hose.
Good news is, they had R-12 Freon. So, the A/C is getting fixed at the same time. It had a leak in the compressor plate. They'll try to replace the fittings instead of the whole plate, and we'll see if that fixes it.
It should be done today.
