I'm pretty sure if you owned the truck, it would be fixed already. 

That's the hardest part of working for someone else. Sometimes the owners priorities are different than what we think is important.  I'm not saying this is the case.   But I know of people that think its more important to go to Vegas or buy a fancy new  pickup , than fix their trucks.

Should have let him know you won't be driving it until fixed the moment you saw that.I will not risk my life to save someone a couple of bucks for a couple of weeks.
