It started about a week ago and it makes the noise on acceleration. We have been told it could be the flywheel, but since his car is an automatic it does not have a flywheel, so could it be the flexplate? If so, in order to check it, does the transmission need to come out of the car?
When my car is idle for too long, the a/c will start blowing warm air even though it is set to cold air. However, if my car is moving the a/c will start to blow cold air again like it is supposed to. What can cause this?

My mechanic told me that my car needs new Brake Drums (front and rear) and Pads, so far. As I did more research about Brakes -it's a lot more than what I expected (there are more brake parts). However, I want to get an idea if the price is fair or they're just trying to rip me off (which I haven't got to that part yet the Estimate).
I know the parts prices vary and it all depends on which parts they use plus the Labor will rise up the pricing. My (2) questions are:

1. Let's assume my car need new Brake Drums (Front and Rear) and pads only. How much should I expect the whole jumbo be?
2. On the other hand, if it needs the whole Brake Replacement, how much are we talking about?
I appreciate it.
