I just have this thing about auto mechanics, they have me over a barrel I know nothing about cars. I have to get my car inspected once a year and I hate it. I have a 10 year old Toyota and it is great. I have had this issue of my engine light being on for years, it is due to my gas cap that sets off the computer casue it leaks. I now just got a new gas cap, but the computer has to be reset. I am having a hard time getting this done, and understanding the issue. Now they say if they reset the computer I have to drive the car for 100 miles before they will inspect it. What a mess and it just frustates me to no end. I am on such a limited budget, to waste a half tank of gas so they can inspect it that is a waste. It all has to be done by the end of the month. I took my car in at 1:00 they took me home and siad they would call me. At 5:10 I called them to find out they had not even looked at the car to tell me for sure that is why the light is on. So now I am stranded with no car and my Mom has a doctors appt. tomorrow. They have no consideration for others, they should have told me or called me to inform me they would not get it done. I had to call them. So you can see why I am all upset today. I still will not know what is wrong with the car till tomorrow.
Here I go venting again, have no place to release my steam. Pray it will all work out for me, only good thing is the guy said he would not charge me for putting the computer on the car to check to see what is wrong. Have to make sure it is the gas cap and not anything else. Thing is they could tell me anything and I am at there mercy. Besides that I am doing fine I guess.
