Re: The Teuchter Car

Just booked the Teuchter Car in for it's MOT and service on the 15th. Last year was astronomically expensive to get it road legal so I'm already nervous about what it'll cost me this time round. Especially as there was a slight hiccup in power this morning heading up one of the hills.

It'll be fine right?

It had bloody better be as MITCAR is riding on this being cheap for once

Re: The Teuchter Car

The Teuchter Car is finally back on the driveway and all road legal for another year. 2 new tyres and a wiper blade was all that was required thankfully so relatively cheap for once.

How long do we think before it's back in the garage again? Place your bets now folks :lol:

And I was right.

The Teuchter Car now has an oil leak but from where I can't see as the undertray obscures it. The coolant is also sitting on minimum which freaks me out considering the hassle and expense I went through last time to get that sorted. The garage is shut so I'll be phoning first thing on Monday to get the damn thing booked in for exploratory surgery.

I have to say though of all the weeks for me not to have a car it couldn't have timed it better. I'm in Edinburgh on Monday and Tuesday and was planning to bus in on Friday anyway as it's the big submit day for our PhD students - celebration time. So just Wednesday and Thursday to complain about needless public transport
