Sorry Ty, but we've repaired 4 of these already. The repair was significantly less than the dealer though. Call Jon at Dublin Auto Repair (925)828-0243 to get the price and schedule an appointment.

Do you know why my vehicle is not on this service bulletin? There's a few other bulletins that have to do with the fuel pump and camp shaft.
