My junky car’s water pump went out. It’s the original 30-year old pump, so over all, that’s not bad. Still, the car’s so old that things have been going out for a while. About 4 years ago the A/C went out, then the power door locks fizzled out, and about a year and a half ago my heater/blower motor (or maybe just the fan switch) stopped working. I’ve spent money over the last couple of years fixing my wife’s car and nothing on mine. Today, the Oldsmobile is in the shop and the water pump’s getting replaced.
