Valve cover gasket: $197 labor (I'm buying again)
Spark plugs: $113

Anybody have an idea what caused this? Taking it back to the shop that did the work, I think. AAA wants to take it to one of their approved shops, & I'm inclined to do that. Car hasn't even hit 400...

First off, INCREDIBLE WRITE-UP!!!

Who said anything about perfection? I simply said that I just wanted an update. That, and it's not nice when a customer is upset to simply send a curt e-mail response saying 'Thanks'.
