About a year ago I had the valve cover gasket replaced, a new air filter, and the throttle body cleaned. As I pulled out of the shop's parking lot, I noticed a vibration by the accelerator and unusually loud engine noise when I accelerated. I immediately took the vehicle back to the mechanic, but he could find no reason for the change. I saw an article about cars that had a tube in the engine compartment that plugged into the exhaust pipe, before the catalytic converter, which sometimes broke or rusted off. Could this possibly be the cause of the excess noise? How would I have this diagnosed (if that is the source of the noise)?

Do toyota echoes have casters in the front end? The shop I went to for alignment stated casters needed to be worked on and it would cost about $200.00. I think I'm getting snowed here.

My 2004 Rav 4 will run fine and then start to stall out. While this happens that tach needle shakes violently. You can actually hear it clicking as it moves left and right. The Rav 4 will restart but immediatly stalls out again. If the car sits for a while the problem will go away, only to come back later. A shop just replaced the Electronic Control Module, and the Rav4 will run for about 1 minute and stall out with the tach needle shaking crazily. Thanks for your help!

I have a quote from a highly decorated napa mechanic for struts, rear brakes and rotors, front axle replacement, stabilizer links, and a wheel alignment. The parts are two thirds of the total estimated cost. Another quote from a larger chain style shop was 43% less for the total job, I don't have the parts and labor breakdown. I don't know who manufactures what parts and how much of a difference there could be in their quality. I know the labor cost would be less for the larger shop, but might there be a big difference in the quality of the parts ? How could a non mechanic know ?

The steering wheel will not lock-it's really hard to get the truck to start. Sounds like the battery but I had that checked first. It's getting so that the steering wheel has to be turned progressively further and harder. Is this an expensive repair? An easy one?
