Moore St Salmon Gums

Coolgardie - Esperance Hwy, Salmon Gums

We are back at Esperance. Left at around 8:30 this morning and got to Salmon Gums (about 100km form Esperance) where we decided to stop for a leg stretch and I discovered oil over the front of the Van. Closer inspection revealed that the oil return line from the Turbo to the sump had sprung a leak.

Hallelujah we took out Premium Cover with NRMA before we left; actually we have always had it. So far this has cost me $1 for 2 phone calls. The RAC sent out a mechanic who called for a tow truck and we were towed back to the Pink Lake Van Park, the NRMA has paid up until Thursday and the Kia will be sent into the KIA dealer on Monday for fixing. It’s under warranty…… It’s lucky it happened there alongside a public phone, no mobile coverage in Salmon Gums. We chose to have the repairs affected and drive on rather than take the option of travel home and have the car and Van carried home later.

Gracie had an interesting ride back in the back of the car on the flat top and we have had an interesting day, we got back to Pink Lake Park at around 4:30…..

We will know more on Monday when the local Kia man checks out the car….
