We would not be able to provide an accurate estimate in this case due to the fact of all the components can be damaged when a vehicle is driven without oil. I would recommend bring the vehicle into the repair shop and have a technician properly diagnose the engine noise and where it is coming from within the engine. Valve train damage can often be repaired at a lower cost. Usually if there is lower end engine damage, it us usually more cost effective to replace the engine with a used unit.

Question Answered: Door locks freeze quite often. I am in my car now with my key stuck in the door.

In regards to key being stuck in the lock, the best temporary repair we can suggest at this time to get you rolling is to spray some WD40 or carbide lubricant into the key hole. If the key will not release try wiggleing it back and forth with out forcing the key to bend. Feel free to tow the vehicle over and we can perform a diagnosis on the door lock.

Question Answered: Both Pads and Rotors Necessary?
November 03, 2010, 02:06 PM
Your Porsche has performance style brakes where the brake compound is very soft. Those type of vehicles usually require new rotors, pads and sensors. There is a cheaper way by what’s called “pad slapping” but not recommended because it can stress other brake components. It all depends on how thick the rotors are. If the rotors are thick enough, you can replace the pads and sensor but if they are to thin it could cause some safety concerns. You will have to replace the sensor because when the light comes on it’s because the sensor made contact with the rotor and burned the tip of the sensor that’s the design one time use only. Hopefully this will help.
