My daughter is in the Coast Guard in San Diego, and was bringing her jeep from Texas When it broke down by El Centro. It sounds like the fan broke, and trashed the radiator. Can anyone recommend a mechanic close to the Navy base? She is having it towed to San Diego tomorrow.
Thanks in advance.
well i dont know any mecanics here, but i am also on the navy base, and we have a hobby shop where we can work on all our own stuff for really cheap. if its just a fan and rad, it would not be too diffacult to do, and much cheaper. i would be willing to show her where it is, and even help her, but i also have issues with my jeep that need to be fixed. im always willing to help out a fellow service member though, and a fellow jeeper.
and remember this is fix only temporary,... unless it works

Her dorm room is in Snyder Hall (I think that is the way it's spelled) I'm not familliar with the base, but I know the Coast Guard has the the top floor.
I hope that it's just a fan and a radiator, but who knows. What makes me mad is that I just put that radiator in last year!
Hey Bolty, I guess that Frank is off tomorrow (Sunday) any ideas what their hours are Monday?
Thanks for the help, you really feel helpless 1500 miles away.
Hey everybody thanks for the help. A couple of her shipmates made the drive to El Centro this morning and are helping her repair it there. It sounds like water pump, fan, and radiator all are shot. Theyr'e hoping to get it running and drive it on in today. Hopefully they can find all of the parts on a Sunday. Much better than paying the Dealership $100/hr for labor!
I'm sure she will keep Sunset Cliffs phone number for later just in case, so thanks a lot Bolty. Maybe you Navy guys aren't so bad after all!
