    If the mechanic says "I think it could be the..." then they should have a good reason for it. It takes a very good understanding of the system to be able to diagnose these types of problems, which your mechanic doesn't seem to have. Find a Gold Shield Station near you and try having them diagnose the problem. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&abauth=ca1626d0:DR7WHawcLJIJ8-DL4Av9CAf-urs&view=text&gl=us&q=gold+shield+smog+loc:+92649,+CA&btnG=Search+Maps
    Don't let this mechanic guess with your money!
