I drove out to a friend's house today to finish painting a design on her daughter's wall. (A Mary Engelbreit clock- Super cute!) She lives way the shmack out in Queen Creek. Long drive for moi. So I'm driving along, listening to Ender's Game on disc, mosying through the neighborhood when
POP! goes the engine.
Steam starts oozing from under the hood.
Car is still running... but clearly, something is wrong.
Once I'm pulled over, I open up the hood to see if maybe my radiator cap blew or something like that. I'm a girl. I know next to nothing about cars.
And I find this:
Blown radiator hose. Pretty ugly. According to the man at Pep Boys, this hose was "older than Moses" and something or other.
So we're going to go fix it now.
Pep Boys man also concerned I may break a nail. Hmph.
