    What kind of vehicle are you working on? Well it don't make much diff. Take it to a repair shop and get it fixed is your best bet.
    Unless you are very auto savvy. Or a mechanic.

    Going from the other post of theirs , I think they are working on a Solara , but again as you said V6 or 4cyl.? .......I updated my profile - does it make sense without being to harsh?

    Yes it does make sense and not harsh at all, if we get ALL of the RIGHT info. it sure would make for a lot more accurate answer.
    Also correct make, year, model,engine even what transmission auto./ manual/ 4x4 AWD. Mileage.
    But that ain't going to happen. I think i will just start asking for that info. before giving any answer.
    Then at least all of us will have a better chance to get it right.
