Well l found out the garage wants 200.00+ to change the valve cover gaskets... so for now they aren't leaking too much and will have to wait. l am going tomorrow to get the oil changed and he said he'd see if maybe they just need tightening up.
But while at the parts store today buying the oil and filter l had the kid come out and check my alternator cause l always seem to have a whine coming from under the hood when driving it. He said the alternator was great but to come look at something. l knew right away this can't be good... the main pully right in the center front of the engine, has the two belts on it... he said it's wobbling ... l couldn't see it doing that but he said it was and to go to a mechanic asp... ughhh.
The car has 133,000 miles on it which isn't bad for a 1996 and l'm the second owner of it and the first and myself have always kept it maintained but now it seems alot is going wrong with it. According to the mechanic it needs brakes, a wheel bearing, valve covers, possibly something done with that pully up front and l was planning on having new plugs and wires put in it even though they were changed just before l got it which was like 15,000 miles ago. l love the car, it's so comfy and sporty but not so much liking the expense it's starting to cost.
