It's got about 125000 miles and I can't remember the last brake work but can look it up.....going to take it in in about an hour and would like to be somewhat informed. It happens when I am going over 30 mph or so.... I can always postpone the service though because you always help me so much in this forum. Thanks Gailfriend
I passed my safety inspection here in VA but not the emissions, due to "engine light" being on (it has been for months now) The station wants to charge me $98 for a diagnostic (labor) which I think takes about 10 seconds to plug in the machine. Maybe not I don't know. They said they have "the code" indicating the problem but need to run diagnostics. Then of course whatever the problems is will be extra, I understand that. I forget what the diagnostic code is but I can find out if that will help. Thanks, you guys are so helpful!!!! Gail
I understand there are multiple gaskets and the only thing I know is that there is oil visible on top of the engine, although the oil levels don't seem to go very low (I check often just in case) Don't know if this info is useful but it's all I have right now - a mechanic told me it would probably be around 800 since they have to lift the engine out to get to the problem.
At first I can't turn the key at all. If I wait a few seconds it will turn one more click. Another few seconds and it goes all the way to the right but nothing happens. Around the 4th or 5th try it starts up. Don't think I can let this go on for too much longer before it plain doesn't start. Replaced the battery a few weeks ago so I know it's not that. It happens almost every time I start the car.
