With my engine blowing smoke out of the back of may car off of the turnpike and the cabin temporarily filling with smoke during the long traffic mile down route 9, I made a quick turn and landed in Framingham Gulf. The engine was overheated. But not because I didn't put fluid in it. Turns out the problem was a leak somewhere according to George, manager of the shop. After patiently explaining the issue with both of us knowing the probable worse, I left it at the shop for the day. I get a call from George who relays the information from Moe, his top mechanic. Moe isn't fluent in English so George does most of the talking. It turned out that there were various parts connecting the engine to the radiator that were now irrepairable including hoses and gaskets, one of which had a leak. But the catch was the engine could have been cooked in the overheating process and may never work the same if at all again even after the parts were replaced. I told him to go for it, thinking that I have to take the risk. I was assured though by the George's professionalism and the fact that although Moe doesn't speak much English he really knows how to fix cars! Later in the day I get the call from George. Everything was replaced. "So far so good," said George. I told him that I was praying and hoping for the best. When I arrived later I saw my old hooptie of a Buick sitting in the corner all alone. I laid hands upon it, thanked and paid the clerk who was waiting for me in the store and jumped in the car. Long story short. The car works now better than it ever has before. I found gears that I never knew were there. The cost was minimal and I had the station to thank. Which I did when I called the next day.
