Dan and Ige were indispensable, so many thanks to both.
Not only did she drive out with nothing more than a new battery and a "hose-job", had a victory lap of driving around for 203 miles as if she never missed a step, including an airport run to pick up my daughters who were pumped the family favorite was home. I still can't get the grin off my face.
Thank you again to everyone. This forum kicks ass!!!
