When I took my car into Firestone to get the front left turn signal fixed, they did a "courtesy check" and told me that the water pump was leaking. They wanted $520 to fix it. I took it to a local garage and they fixed the water pump plus some other things for $350.
mY CAR IS OVERHEATING AND THE HEATER DOES NOT WORK.

Replaced the water pump. If you smell antifreeze you have a problem.
