Ok got it. As soon as the NY weather gets a bit better, I'll do that and see what I can figure out. I do have a mechanic friend that's more than
capable to tackle this but he's about 50 miles away from me.
I take my "heavier" work to him once I group it together since I usually leave my car with him for a bit at a time and have to get a ride back.
However, after I do my own probing on this, it might be the way to go.
My local repair shop, though good, i use it for everyday things...
Thank you again.
PS, of course I'll be keeping tabs on the oil level...
