Well, the furnace wasn’t as big a problem as I was worried it might be. It was fairly cheap and I learned a hell of a lot about my furnace that wasn’t in any of my “do it yourself” manuals. The problem was a sensor that needs to be cleaned once a year — I didn’t know about it, and it hasn’t been cleaned since the furnace was installed in 1996. So now I know how to do that, and how to do other troubleshooting stuff if something similar happens to my furnace, so I can try to fix it before calling the maintenance guys. I also learned that my furnace is in really good shape and shouldn’t need anything major for five or six years at least. So, cool. The car problem still sucks, though.
