My daughter owns this Honda. It the last time she took the car in was for the brake pads. Now the muffler needs replacing and her gears get stuck. She has an estimate from the shop of $290 to replace the full muffler and $400 to repair the transmission. I am afraid if she gets the repair, something else is going to go wrong. We really never had a problem with this very dependable car even though it is old. Should we get another estimate?

How much to replace a clutch

Hi, I am trying to buy a 1992 Honda Accord and the seller has informed me that the power steering fluid leaks from time to time and he adds some when needed and says he may use a 12 oz. bottle a month. He's not sure if it's just a leak or if the rack and pinion will need to be replaced, which is very costly he explained. Can I easily tell which needs to be done? And how much will the rack and pinion repair cost? I'm getting the car for a great price and would just like to know if it will be worth it all. Thanks!

I've had high oil consumption, rough running engine which lead to a burnt valve - that was replaced and yet the problems still persist.
