Thank You RTGT

I picked up the car this morning. It took a couple of tries to get back to the office, due to me overreacting to noises. Hey, I have been driving my Toyota for the last month, it makes no weird noises. The engine feels better. I can’t think of any other way to describe it. It feels tighter and less rowdy. The weird idle it had since I bought it is gone.

I am deeply indebted to Tonkin. Not in the way you think, well in a bit of the way you think. The performed the timing belt service and did the valves for just over $8600. Even with all the times I bugged them, all the times I asked them to show me what they were doing I was still given what I think was a great deal. When I picked up the car I talked with Matt about the valves. The place that did the work was amazed I had only lost 14% compression. Apparently the valves were really off and very dirty to boot.

I was glad to get back in the car. It really is wonderful to drive. I am going to take the long way home this evening and enjoy it.
