Anyone have some advice for me??
What should I do?
Well, you sound like you really don't have $75...so if the leak is stopped for the time being...I would live with it until my next paycheck, at which point I would prioritize $75 to replacing the plug and fluid (I am guessin' the funds will come around maybe in a week or two? maximum a month?)...but I would not just "live with it" indefinitely like what the mechanics suggested...that is quite irresponsible...and like what the others said, it will probably get worse down the road...
