On a roll...grrrr - Wabbit - 06-11-2019

2 days after landing in S&B's last week, the minivan started a slow brake fluid drip. FUCK! Took it to a mechanic, brake master cylinder and brake booster both supposedly need replacing. Quoted $681 for both. FUCK FUCK FUCK!!! Guy said he wouldn't release vehicle unless I signed a waiver. 

Anyways 2002 Ford Windstar SEL. Anyone know if this is reasonable? Thnx.

I'm not a mechanic lol, I can't do the work. I called the mechanic and told him to go ahead and do it.

that better include full rear brakes

if i was there i would of done it for $1-200 plus parts,depends on how much i cuss/bleed,small brakes like that are pretty easy

RE: On a roll...grrrr - B and C - 06-11-2019

Small brakes are easy as long as they are disk. Rear drum brakes are are PITA with that emergency brake setup. Putting in a new vacuum booster and master cylinder, they will have to get under the dash to remove the vacuum booster. Not a fun job by any means.

Talking to a guy here he said it's not bad. I was being a bit angsty about money lol. I think I got it figured out. Don't like putting that much on credit cards, but I am glad I caught it before something bad happened with brakes.

It's a convenient time since your stuck in S & B anyway.
You could have been on the road in Ironwood, Michigan during the winter.

Sorry to hear about the hit on your savings but good to know you'll have good brakes now!

I'd say that there's no stopping you now but it sounds like you are getting it taken care of.
