Gretchen Harris (Tyler, Texas) - 1996 Nissan Sentra
Gretchen’s car got stuck in the mud, and in the process of getting it pulled out, mud got all over the dashboard and into the vents. Dealer quoted $500 to clean it out and fix heater control box. Gretchen took it to another mechanic who kept it for a day, then returned it, all cleaned, and only charged $57. What did this mechanic do and why was it so much cheaper? Tom and Ray think the mud had hardened to concrete, and mechanic just blew compressed air into the vents until the stuff stopped coming out through the drain. The car is probably fine now.
