      I'd also still like my $200 back. He surprisingly Pay-Pal'd me $100 out of nowhere a couple years ago... Still $200 shy, though.

      2+wks in the shop and they've managed to do a pressure check (so the counter guy says) and clean it. It was like pulling teeth to find out if the head even passed the pressure test... not satisfied...

      I don't have power steering, oddly enough, so that's one less thing in the way. As far as that wire, that is all there is, from that solenoid-esque looking thing to the stripped wires, that's all...
