Hey guys my car broke down here in sparks while traveling from SLC to Tahoe. It’s my power steering pully and/or my P.S pump. If anyone has recommendations for a fair garage with decent turn around, Cheap hotel recommendations and/or hostel Basically a place to stay warm? It was too cold sleeping in the car last night! Maybe Things to do for a couple days? I would appreciate any info from the local climbers. Thank you in advance

That's a drag, but you can still drive with the power steering pump not functioning. I used to drive my dad's '71 Mustang with the pump out. Once the car gets up to speed, it is easier to steer. But parking lot driving is next to impossible. Just a note in case you want to limp to another town.

I think Yelp reviews are pretty good for finding a good business (automotive, motels, etc.)

Edit: I am not the Frank from Silver State Automotive!
