It was snowing in the morning, and it was freezing cold on Tuesday. When I arrived at my workplace parking lot, I saw smoke coming out from under the hood of my car, and I hurried to open the hood to inspect any leaking. From what I saw, there was liquid everywhere, what a mess, but I couldn't see it clearly since it is still dark in the morning. During lunch time, I had my colleagues to inspect my car too, it was the coolant leaking out, since the coolant reservoir also empty. Obviously there is a leaking in along the radiator upper hose. After work, I stop by NAPA, and purchase a 50/50 coolant, and fill it up, and drive carefully to the mechanic shop. It gave me a heart - attack along the way, because the temperature going up to "H" mark if I tried to accelerate in the highway. Finally, I made it to the mechanic, and had him replace the hose for me, and from what I saw, it was an easy fix though. The total cost was around $60 including parts and labor. Maybe I should learn 1 thing or 2 about auto mechanic, so I can save that cost.

Yes u are absolutely right, we all should have some knowledge about cars if we are driving it so that we can resolve any issues if it strikes at the wrong time. besides since u are aware of the importance of knowing certain things about car repairing may b u can learn them with time.
