hatcity Posted July 11, 2012 Share Posted July 11, 2012 Yesterday, just got off the highway and approached a red light. As i slow down, steam is coming out from the hood. Pull over quick and shut 'er down. Look around for the leak as the engine is covered with coolant. Makethe assumption that the leak is in the front as it is front to back covered. Start the truck quick, see the top radiator hose is broke, shut down.Hose is split in the center. HMMMM. if i can cut the hose in half, can I get the two pipe ends close enough to clamp tight to make it to the yard (about 3 miles)Get it back together. Put some tools away and getting coolant that I carry anyway, when I see a car pull up behind me. Slightly chubby woman heads over to me. First thought-"Are ya broke down?" or "my boyfriend is a mechanic, blah blah"Nope. Walks over and says "It's too hot to be broke down here. God loves you, have a nice day" Hands me a bottle of cold water from the store, turns and gets in her car.All I could say was thank you and have a good day. Sorry, no pics. Had other things to do.However, that red light do have some fine scenery pass thru it 1 Quote Success is only a stones throw away.................................................................for a Palestinian Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
