Hosed.

I had to go to Beverly Hills the other day, which is an hour away from my house. I filled the reservoir up with coolant, stowed the leftovers in the back, and got on the road. 10 minutes later the “Low Coolant” light came on again and I landed with a screeching halt at Mezian Motors in Los Angeles. They took me in like a stray dog. After cracking my hood, and doing a quick pressure test, it was painfully clear that my Upper Radiator hose was bust. It was just old and had a large crack in it. The coolant was just pouring out. Luckily they just happened to have an extra hose laying around. 20 minutes & $130 later I was back on the road. Surreal. One would think Rusnak would have replaced the Upper and Lower Radiator Hoses when they replaced the radiator. But what do I know. I’d recommend Mezian in a heartbeat. Good peoples.

    $130 for hoses? Good Lord, were they gold plated?

      I’m sure $130 covered more than just the hoses themselves. There’s labor, plus Freya’s ride probably also needed more coolant, maybe even new clamps.

    I just saw an interview about/with Bill Casey on the volvo blog:
