Dealership wants over $1500 for repairs to replace broke engine mount, replace evap vent solenoid, oil filter adapter housing gasket & pressure control solenoid (code p1811 max adpt long shift.) I have a guy that said he'd fix if I buy parts but I'm not sure how involved and/or difficult the repairs will be. He said most of time somebody mechanically inclined can make repairs if given steps or guidance.

    I thought it sounded very high so I told them not to do repairs. Problem is I'm already out $80 so far....what if someplace charges for diagnostics and they're cost is the same.
