    AC is finally fixed! I got my car back today. It spent 2 weeks at the shop. They sent to a body shop first, to fix the gas door which didn't close properly. Then, waited for correct condenser to arrive. Lastly, they found the radiator was leaking and I agreed to replace it.

    Saw an ad on a billboard in Dallas. It said,

    You're wife is still hot...
    Get your A/C fixed.

    Car is back to DD status. It spent 6 weeks or so parked on my driveway, the ZHP grabbed the garage spot.

    Two issues to report : (1) Blown speaker on the passenger front door. I assumed the sound was supposed to slowly deteriorate, but not in this case. For now, I'm only listening to the left speakers until I have chance to troubleshoot some more.

    (2) The valve cover is leaking. The car has 84k miles. At first, I could smell burning oil. Then smoke from the engine compartment started to show. I have an appt to replace the valve cover on Monday Feb-18. I stopped driving the car until then.

    Good, these are pretty minor issues. Blown speaker is strange. It sounds weird or rattles?

    Rattle is a good word to describe the noise. Sadly, the valve cover replacement is $1,100 (parts and labor).

    Yep, direct injection problems...One of my FB friends has a Chevy Cruze that she spent over 1k+ for a VC gasket.
