For the last week or so, the Hub's car has been making a funny sound when he starts it up in the morning. When it's a "cold" start.
Earlier this week he called the small mechanic owned auto repair shop that he goes to for an appointment. He brought it into the shop this morning around 8:30am so it could get fixed and it was all fixed by 11:30am.
According to the mechanic, the Hubs' car was in desperate need of a tune up. The spark plugs were down to the nub. The fuel injectors were almost clogged up. With over 120k miles, the Hubs was just gunked up. And the mechanic fixed it up in no time flat.
Thank goodness for the work ethic of the small business owner!
