My Ford Explorer waterpump gave out and I took it to a certified Mechanic shop. Repair will use a new Motorcraft pump and parts. Total cost estimate is $500. Does this sound about right for this job?
Today, 6/18/12, when I started my car I heard this loud noise coming from under the hood. It never stopped the entire trip to work. Has anyone had this occur? BTW It never ran hot. Do you think it's harming the engine? Thx. (No codes showed up on the screen.) it did it again on the drive home.

What is the problem
I had a car accident with a few scrapes and one big piece of damage on the back. I have an estimate, but it seems really high. How much would it cost for a few repairs or at worst to replace the whole door?
Major problem? minor problem? Dealer repair, or good local shop?
When I turn the key to the on postion there are times the engine will not start. When I jiggle the key and keeping turning the ignition on and off several times the engine will start. It is as though ther is no electricity to the ignition.
The smell is like a sour smell. I know the cabin air filter is in the engine compartment and I plan to change today. Any other ideas anyone may have. Thanks
