Okay, $650 something, mom said okay, guy said it was the water pump
that blew up, took out the timing belt with it, it’s an interference
engine (wtf?) so it couldn’t take out the pistons or valves or
whatever, and he has to replace something else because there’s oil on
the bottom of the timing belt thing, suggesting a leak. I already knew
about the leak, but hey, mom said she’ll pay it and we can pay her
back.

Cheaper than a new car, at least.
