Went to my friend the Mopar man who condescends to work on my Tore-Arse, as
he calls it. Was losing a lot of oil. He replaced the oil pressure switch,
but told me I seem to have a slow leak from the head gasket. When I
mentioned that my interior windshield is hazing slightly from the vents, he
told me my heater core is going (gone? can't remember). There is an
occasional whiff of coolant in the car.
I'm no mechanic. What does the heater core have to do with the head gasket?
Meaning, will a bad heater core cause the head gasket to go, or vice versa?
Just wondering how much money to put into it. A tranny line needs
replacing, or I could just keep topping up the fluid (bad for the
environment, yes, but easier on my pocketbook if I have to buy another car
in 2 months).
<sigh> I love my Ford! I was hoping to get another year out of it. Any
advice? The car has 265,000 km on it (164,565 miles).
