Starting Pump

my truck in happier times

Damn truck. It is starting to show its age a little. There are a few rattles, squeaks, clunks, and odd noises every now and then. But it has always been reliable.

Today I dropped it off for routine maintenance, which I knew was going to be an expensive one. I got the call right at lunch. The water pump needs to be replaced. :jawdrop:

Crap. That sucks. Big time. This more than doubles the already large bill I was expecting.
