Van: Good News, Bad News

The immediate problem with the van fan was loose wires, which sort of explains why the problem was intermittent. Fixing that including the original fee for diagnosis would be about $225. However, while looking over the van, they found that the oil cooler lines were leaking (which might well explain why I continue to have occasional fluid drips). I told them to go ahead and fix it, since the point of this is to keep the vehicle running and in good condition. Estimated total damage: $650.

The good news is that they say they'll have the van ready for me sometime tomorrow afternoon, so I won't have to rent a car on Monday to go to work.
