I was told to repair or replace the canister/purge valve. If I were told to replace those parts, should I pay for a general diagnostic then have the part repaired? how much does a repair or replace costs? The light came one once before and I replaced the gas cap. It did not go off but was told by the person at Auto Zone that the gas cap was the problem.

when stopped it will almost die. give it gas to take off and it goes no where no rpm. in park though the engine rpm is fine problem is when car is in gear

it doesn't happen all the time but when it does it starts right back up. also sometimes it does it before i put it into gear. does it in all gears. Now the oil hose from the external filter to the motor leaks so it loses pressure as the motor gets to operating temp. and it probably needs a fuel filter. and/ or spark plugs, wires, cap, and coil.

i change air filter to, and diesel filter

I changed the central switch at the driver side door, still not working. All fuses seems to be ok. Is there any relay under the dashboard?

it seems to grind less when you down shift. it stays in gear no problem.all other gears go in easy.How expensive is it to correct this.also if I continue to drive it how much damage am I causing. thanks o.d.

My car was making a creaking noise when driving over bumps or when I turned the wheel to the left. Drove OK. Put some WD40 around steering column and it helped with the noise. Took it in and mechanic said ball joints were ready to pop and I couldn't drive the car. He is asking $435 to replace 2 ball joints and do the allignment. Is that a fair price?
