I'm trying to bring an 1989 MR2, which has been garaged for 15 yrs.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: Tore it down to replace water pump
, and not sure if I have correct hdwr to even assemble water pump! have 4 @ 10mm bolts, realize that one of the larger diameter bolts to block... can't determine how to secure other two..
JA: So many things can cause water pump issues. Some simple, some complicated. Fortunately, the mechanics we work with have tons of experience dealing with them.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: assume starter
might be rusted from sitting 15 years!
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Toyota Mechanic should know about your Toyota?
Customer: Yes, realized I was in over my head long time ago, but have the time to deal with it now, but not the memory!
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
