I took my car to that mechanic three times after he "worked" on it (he did rear main seal, timing belt, water pump, plugs, wires, distributor cap, valve cover gasket). And every time I went back, there was a new problem. Like the power steering fluid leak he says that I have, that I've never had to put fluid in for. And it's supposedly leaking from the distributor now (he replaced some kind of O ring there or so he says plus he replaced the new valve cover gasket also ...). Oh, and it's still trying to stall out on me at red lights after it gets good and warm. Really bad idling issue. He told me it was the throttle idle body - cleaned it up he said, but no. That didn't fix it. At all. Right now, I barely trust her to get me to the store a mile from my house. From what I read in my book, it could be 12 different things. EGR valve or PCV valve, vacuum leaks, air filter clogged (I know it isn't this), leaking head gasket, timing belt worn (just replaced that so no), camshaft lobes worn, valves need adjusting or they're burned/leaking, ignition timing out, dirty or clogged injectors, idle speed out of adjustment, ignition timing out of adjustment .... and I don't know where to start.
