Ch-Ching! (Part 2)
The mechanic called. The clutch is all fixed. And now I know why my check engine light was on.

My oxygen sensor crapped out. They tell me that my fancy car had a fancy "heated" oxygen sensor, which is bad news, because they're far more expensive than your normal room temperature sensor. The good news is they can get me a brand new one today or tomorrow. The final cost of the repairs will be $620.

Whee!

dude, your car is a honda civic no? We got an oxygen sensor for like $169 CDN and installed it ourself. All you have to do is buy this special socket tool for like $20 and voila we saved our selves $300. Damn. I wish I was there so I could show you. And you don't need a fancy one!:)

Heh, well the sensor was $205, and the labor for that repair is $76. Plus $45 for something else there... I forget. So, the total for that part of the job was only $326. Then $235 for the clutch, then the $50 for the actual smog inspection.

Anyways, I'm more than happy to let them fool with my car. I don't like to get my precious hands dirty. I'll earm more money spending that time at the computer than I would save doing the work myself.

Ahh well. But still, if I was there I'd do it myself then:P

We have a 94 Accord and man some of the things on these honda's are expensive huh:)
