Baby Blanco is home

Got our car back from the mechanic today. The timing belt broke and it made a mess of the engine. We will try it a few days and see how it goes. Seems to run fine so far, but it stalled on me twice when driving home. I think the idle is low and might need adjustment.
Note to everyone: don't let the timing belt break on you car! We got lucky and got off cheap because the mechanic was a friend of a friend.
In Venezuela you need three things; a good doctor, a good lawyer, and a good mechanic.

I am hoping it is a simple tweeking of a screw in the fuel injector. It is running great other than that.
