Yep, he's a really awesome guy. One of the few honest mechanics on NYC, with prices that are unbeatable. But I'm sure he's making up for his lower profit margin by the fact that he gets A LOT of business, for good reason. When I first brought my car to him he told me to bring it next week because he was so backed up. And he also does great body and painting work. And he's a 7 min walk from my house and right next my local subway station, so being super a convenient drop off for me makes it all the better!Ah yes, the rear latch. It's just one of those things you have to attend to on these vehicles.
Well, I have been ignoring it for quite a while and finally did something about it. At first I heard a chirping, light random squeak over some bumps from what I thought was the rear wiper area. It sounded like the motor bolts were loose (IMO). I put it off and figured if it got worse I would...www.piloteers.org
For all he did, that cost seems more than reasonable.
Also, I'm a bit confused as to how much transmission fluid I should buy. If I do 3x Drain and Fill, am I buying 3 of these 1 gallon jugs? Is it (approx) 1 jug per D&F? This is a bit confusing to me because according to Google, the total capacity is 3.5 quarts, and you guys said that only 40% of the fluid comes out when draining. Or would a 1 gallon jug cover all 3 drain and refills?
