For the past couple of weeks, I have heard a weird noise coming from under the hood. My work van has over 200,000 miles, as well as it’s nearly twenty years old. I drive the van all over the city. In a normal day, I undoubtedly drive 200 or 300 miles. That happens to be a lot of wear as well as tear on the aged van. I was on my way to an air conditioner tune-up Last week, when the van stopped finally working. I was resting in traffic on the bridge, when the whole van stopped. It seemed savor the engine cut off in an instant. I called the owner of the Heating as well as A/C company first. I needed a tow truck as well as a mechanic. Next, I called the customer who was waiting for air conditioner tune-up service. I explained the particular situation as well as she rescheduled the Heating as well as A/C tune-up for the following day. I sat on the bridge for 2 hours, before a wrecker came to option up myself and others as well as the van. Every one of us took the van to our Heating as well as A/C maintenance shop, so the mechanic could evaluate the problem. I took another Heating as well as A/C maintenance truck fmo the shop, as well as continued with my list of tasks for the day. At the end of the day, I came back to the shop. That’s when I got the awful news. My work van blew the engine. It would cost a fortune to update the engine, so the company is going to scrap the van as well as buy a up-to-date 1. Now I have to wait a few weeks for a up-to-date work van. In the meantime, I am stuck in an aged van without any heat or air conditioner.
