Detroit River Fishing

The Great Detroit Flood of 2014 resulted from the second largest downpour in Detroit history. It closed several expressways and poured into thousands of Metro Detroit basements. The 4.72 inches of rain was the highest daily recorded rainfall since July 31, 1925, when 4.74 inches of rain fell. What went wrong? Could it have been prevented?

    Default Need Recommendation For Auto Repair

    I need intake manifold/head gasket repairs. Preferably in Westland, Garden City, Livonia and Dearborn areas. Was quoted $1,200 for intake gasket replacement but I hope to get this done a lot cheaper. Any personal recommends would help. Thanks.

    You can take a chance on a driveway CL mechanic.

    Rogers Automotive on Van Born in Dearborn Hts. They don't have a sign on the building because they do such good work at fair prices they get mostly referrals and return business.

    Thanks all for your suggestions. But I got the job done at a great price. I was on the verge of dumping a can of block and gasket sealant into my cooling system when I got a recommendation from a guy at an auto parts store. He turned me on to a guy that did the intake manifold gasket replacement, thermostat change and oil change for $325! That's $325!! All out of his backyard workshop. He only works on cars on the weekends. I dropped it off Friday night and it was ready on Saturday afternoon. He's in Westland, MI. Not sure if he's OK with me posting his name/phone number here. If anybody is interested, email me.

    That's great news. I sent you a PM to find out if the mechanic can do some work on my car. Thanks.

    Garage/backyard car guys that are skilled can make a killing.

    One of my best friends did this for decades.....most every night after work, Friday night to Sunday afternoon non-stop. Gotta feed 6 kids one way or another.
