Do you have any idea of range of prices? I have hear horror stories about a woman alone going to shops, usually deal with dealership but their charges are to high for my pocket, If I had a guess to cost it would help. This seems to be a great site although I am very new to it.
Go to the home page here and click on the Estimator at the top of the page, enter the info. it ask for and you will get a ballark price. You need to have it checked out by a qualifed mechanc! You do not have to go to a dealer.
