Car Problem!

Standard

The dreaded Check Engine light lit up on Badona’s car.  We took it to Andy’s Automotive where we get our vehicles inspected.  Johnny came out with his handheld computer and plugged it into the car under the dashboard.  It read “running lean.”  That made sense because we have had to push the gas pedal down more to get moving.  He opened the hood and found a large hole in the corrugated rubber intake hose.  I never would have seen it, being color blind.  It was dark on dark.  Now, if the hose were white, I would be able to see a dark hole in it.

Anyway, I taped up the hole; and the car ran much better.  I ordered a new intake hose from Advance Auto.  It was pretty expensive for what it is.  After installing the new hose, I went back to Andy’s.  Johnny checked it again with his computer and took the light off the dash.  For all of his help, there was no charge!  By the way, he asked me if I wanted a job!

Good people work there at Andy’s.  If I were younger, I’d be proud to work with them!
