The service shop I took my car to after it failed emissions due to some thing to do with the gas cap and the tank itself, says they need to drop the tank to get to the top where the parts are that need to be inspected. They say they have to drop the majority of the rear end to get the tank out. They $600 just to drop the tank. Is that accurate? The machine repair tech where I work says that is crazy, car manufacturers do not build cars with gas tanks that inaccessable since it is a system that needs repair often.
The main line fuse is located on the left side of the car, under the hood, and seems to be a part of a bar. What is this bar called and how do you replace this? My friend "Jerry rigged" it for now but I need to get it fixed as soon as possible. Will this be expensive to replace?

Called shop they wanted near $500 to replace the sensor. Went to local repair shop, he disconnected battery got me a new gas cap and advised to make sure you place cap on secure (like turning well past it starts clicking). Went about nine months light came on again, disconnected battery, turned cap tighter and still has not come back on.
Car feels like its going to shut down when first accelerating. Feels like its not getting enough gas. This all started right after changing the air filter.
how many spark plugs and wires do I need to do tuneup and timing belt labor cost $300 is this good deal I will buy the parts thanks for help
Emissions test. I took it to Auto Zone for a printed diagnostics test. The code P0430 came up. Is that the o2 sensor?
