i took it back and the mechanic said i needed a valve job. 1,200.00. it accelerates fine but as soon as i let off the gas it starts sputtering/skipping. the wire he put on looked aftermarket. at first he said the wires that he installed were faulty and replaced them. how can i tell if i need a valve job? what are the symptoms of bad valves?
front park lights come on when hit brake pedal. Sometimes the left & sometimes the right. Sometimes one is on all the time & gets brighter when hit brake pedal.

I cannot get the front washer fluid to dispense. I pulled the whole reservoir out and water flows freely from both the front and rear outlets. I checked the fuse and that's good (the rear fluid works too). Not sure what else to check. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
