At what point do you guys consult a shop for repairs?
I'm hunting down an issue with my car, and my wife suggested I just bring the old box into a mechanic. I'm no mechanic, but I'm a commercial plumber, so I know tools and quality repairs. It feels like I'm replacing almost every accessory or bushing that I can upgrade (within reason).
I save a LOT of $$$ doing my own repairs, as I'm sure you guys do too. Last weekend alone was an alternator, water pump, and serpentine belt, previous week was spark plugs, thermostat, new ground wire. That $200 project alone must've saved me over $1,000. Plus, I'm not waiting around for a mechanic to fix it. It's all on MY time.
Am I just being too frugal?
