today i locked the keys in the car. after trying to open the door i had to call a locksmith. in 2 minutes the guy used a air bag to pry the door open and unlocked it with a long fiberglass rod. great work so i thought. after i got under way the open door alarm came on and it stayed on even after i checked and made sure all doors trunk and hood were closed. this is causing the cab lights to stay on all the time and its draining the battery.

There is no leaks any where or anything in the oil to be a sign of a head problem.

If these sound a little on the high side please let me know and if there is someone I contact, either BBB or someone please let me know, they quoted me around 700 dollars for the repair and ended up with them doing it after I gave them the okay. The following day I went to pay them and they showed me a bill of 885.10 So Please if you have any advice or someone I could contact here in North Carolina please feel free to tell me

2003 vw jetta 1.8 turbo; when accelerating up steep grades massive amounts of white smoke come from the exhaust (sometimes when it happens, I cannot even see the car behind me) but goes away when I stop accelerating. This is very embarrassing. Very rarely does this happen during normal driving. My mechanic has not been able to identify the problem. Any thoughts?

my oil was leaking and I took it into the mechanic. He did some re-sealing but said if continues to leak that it will need housing replacement. Is this something that I can find used or is it best to let him get the part for lots of $$?
