    The car was hesitating when I would accelerate. 1st gear was alright, but all other gears would hesitate when I agressivley accelerated. They replaced it and the cR ran great for a week. Then it started stalling and running very rough all the time. Engine systems service light came on. The dealer says I need to replace oil trap and it will cost $770.00. I just spent 1700 a week ago on routine maintanence and replacing everything they recomended, here I am literally 10 days later and the car breaks down.

    The CEL light came on with no noticable symptoms. Mechanic says the sensor must be changed and the cost will be $500. Seems a bit high, no?
