5 Hour Radiator Replacement
I was driving home from work the other day when I noticed my car's heat gauge slowly past the 50% mark. This odd behavior was more alarming due to the puddles of liquid seen beneath my engine recently. And to the check engine light which had been on for over 5 weeks..
Turns out my radiator had a leak. I watched a youtube video called 10 Minute Radiator Replacement (Most Cars) and thought to myself, "That doesn't look too hard.."
A couple hours later, that thought was replaced with "What were you thinking Alex". I got some help from an old friend and was able to finish around the 5 hour mark. It takes most auto shops 30min to replace a radiator. My back hurts and my hands are scuffed up, but overall it was a satisfying and good learning experience.
