My van had smoke (actually, steam) rolling out from under the hood on Friday morning, and a fluid dripping from the frame underneath. That little issue caused Samantha and I to be a bit late to work. It also renewed a lot of "what if" discussions.
Today we found out it was caused by a $1.99 gasket near the water pump that only took moments to replace. Samantha's dad and brother came up to fix it, prolonging the replacement car shopping for a little while.
