How much should it cost to fix and how long. I had a mechanic tell me he wouldn't know how long or how much until he pulled off my steering wheel. I've been told it's a pretty common fix. Why would he try to bamboozle me.

Now my car is having trouble picking up speed and when I step on the gas pedal it makes a loud screeching noise even when I just start the car it still makes rough idle and whistling and screeching noise and won't go higher than 20mph. I tried to drive, but I started to smell gas so I parked it. Please help

I took my car to a transmission shop and had a diagnostics ran and they say the transmission is shot. How can I be sure that it is not a computer problem? Another transmission is going to be anywhere from $1400 to $2900 I am told. Is this reasonable? I am really screwed here since this is me and my daughter only vehicle and I have no family to help. I just dont know what to do.....please any advise would be appreciate.

The battery light would come on. When starting on the starter knocks.It would not start? Until I recharge the battery again it would start.

Shop says 2500$ valve job? Is there any thing else it could be?

I have replaced the O rings between the upper manifold before and when I took it apart the last tine there was fuel outside the area where the O rings were on # 2 and #5 cylinders.

I have a constant low vacuum at the EGR valve less than 5 Hg at idle, which it seems is enough to move the diaphragm in the ERG valve. I replaced the EGR solenoid, and I have voltage at the solenoid plug. However if I disconnect the Solenoid plug I still have vacuum at the EGR. I removed the EGR vacuum hose and plugged it, put a vacuum Gage in the system at the intake manifold I get about 17Hg. Reconnect the EGR vacuum line and it drops to about 15Hg. I am stumped

I changed all the vacuum lines, changed the ERG, and solenoid pump. The truck stumbles once i put the vacuum line on the ERG valve(runs smooth with out the vacum line on the EGR vavle). Can anyone suggest a system to look at?

Cleard the code but it still runs rough at idol, anything els to check?

This has been a great vehicle for us but now it is idling rough in the mornings but is ok after warmed up. She said there was an unusual smell coming from the exhaust during the rough idle. Does this sound like catalytic converter gone bad? If so, how much would it cost to replace??

i took calipers off and 1 1/4 nut off disc seems to be stuck?

Do I need to pull the evaporator to get to the tube? Please tell me it's not.

A/C intermittenly blows cold then hot. Suction line from port forward was cold but from port to accumulator was warm. High side was at 75, no higher. Help!!
