I was told by Chevy dealership mechanic it would be $2000 to repair. I cannot hear a rattling from a broken bolt and is this a fair price
And how long can I drive with this issue since I do not have $2000 saved yet. What are the suggestions and answers. Confused

got a fuel pump replaced by Dodge and since my fuel lines blew off, truck started stalling after a hot start. no check engine light and no codes on the code reader, what is wrong with my truck?
One of them I replaced twice within a month. All are new now except one. Someone told me yesterday when one goes bad you must replace them all at the same time, is that true and what could be causing them to go bad???? Frustrated with my kia

So last night when I started cranking the car it makes a God awful grinding noise and it wouldn't start. This morning the grinding was still there but it started. My belief is that it's the starter. Aside from it being the starter and/or the flywheel is there anyhing else it could be?
The blower does not blow
Still get code PO 102. Each timeI reset the scan tool, start truck and book, the light comes on every time. Checked the connector. The dec says I'm suppose to have a min. of 1 lb of air, and it shows 0. I believe I have a wireing problem, or I also noticed that one of my o2 sensors have been vibrating on the cross over bar which holds the transmission. This has bugged me for two week or so, and would like to get it fixed. Can anyone out there lend a hand?
I have a problem starting only rarely. The engine always turns over so it is not the battery but once in a while the engine does not catch. When it does start, everything appears normal. Because each spark coil is directly over each spark plug, I cannot use my timing light. What is the most probable defect and how should I check?
My door locks operate erratically on thier own when I'm driving. They seem to get really active when I accelerate quickly. I replaced the BCM but that only cured other problems, like the dash cluster going dead and coming back on, the theft deterrent light coming on and beeping this sickly beep, then going off, and the automatic head light now comes on when I start up. I just noticed that the pass. side lock actuator must be going bad because the remote doesn't cause it to lock or unlock that door. I'm going to replace it, but I don't think it will solve the gremlin havin a party with the power locks.
My car is running rough and it will heat up to the H and then shoot back down and constantly go up and down. I've had all hoses checked and it is sucking down Antifreeze. I disconnected the MAF and it ran at about 1000 RPMs, before it was at 500. I am going to get this fixed in hte next few days. Will I be okay to just run it without the sensor attached?
I just read the fault codes on my 2003 V40 and it shows all four cylinders with misfire. The vehicle does not have any issues with running or performance. Just at the initial start up. Any help would be appreciated. Codes are: P0301, P0302, P0303 and P0304
after changing the battery I noticed holding the key 2-3 seconds longer to start the car. then it took 2-3 attempts then the car would start. then it took holding the key for about a min or more. headlights and interior lights come on as normal. jumped car and it started. checked the alternator and it had pull. though it must be the starter. tapped on starter and the car cranked. thought it has to be the starter then. changed the starter and it worked for half a day. back to holding the key longer. once it starts you can turn it off and back on with no problem. let it sit and back to holding the key. and sometimes it doesn't work.
