Hello and welcome to Justanswer.com my name isXXXXX'm a Certified Car Expert Mechanic.I'm going to try to help you find the help you need. it looks like you wll need 2 new oxygen sensors and and mas air flow sensors also you have missfire that indicates worn out spark plugs or ignition coil or wires assuming you will need new spark plugs and wires that is most common , to fix all this you lookin in parts $650 and labor is $400 that is using all orginal parts i would let shop this repair or hunday dealer so you dont void warranty
Enes, I appreciate your timely answer, but that information I already know - in specialized Electronic shop got an $ 1000.00 estimate. They didn't even were looking at the car then, but only official smog check estimate of the problem. As you see I'm ready to pay for wide precise explonation, but I thing it still very premuture for the price requested. Please don't be offended or dissapointed, because of. Me, myself, is in the same situation, ironically.Thank you, anyway !Sincerally, Yaroslav.
Relist: Incomplete answer.Nice thing is your web site - great expertize capabilities idea for the wide areas, but so far not so practical for non-dependent only from you reasons, I have the same problem. Hopefully you'll become useful in the future, as far as I have the some balance here.The answer provided, was not helpful, for non-dependent from expert reason - that's why I don't agree yet to pay. I, also, have yet a few hundreds of good ideas about this and that and can't cash it out either.
Sorry for your problem. I am here to try and assist you.You won't void any warrants by fixing these problems yourself. Misfires may occur because the computer has shut down cylinders because of another problem. You can change the mass air flow sensor your self with out any problem. The oxygen sensors are a different story. Your best bet is to try to loosen the with a 7/8 in or 22mm boxed wrench. if you can't loosen them take it to the shop. they can sometimes take over an hour each with torches and the proper tools. His answers replace replace are not always the best. Wires and plugs last at least 100,000 miles.How many miles are on your car? You will also need someone to turn off the check engine light too. or you will need to buy a cod scanner to do so. as the code don't go away by just repairing the problem. Feel free too ask me more questions. Thanks for using Just Answers. Jim
I have worked on everyting from Model Ts to 2012 Autos,
Who I can trust to leave my car to fix the problem in order to pass the smog check in San Francisco? And how much it will cost me ?
I'm sorry I'm not even on your coast. I'm sure if you ask some friends they maybe able to help you. No matter where you take your car be sure to get a definite charge for your repairs up front. Some of these problem are hard to pinpoint. Find a shop that has an enhanced scanner. They may be able to pinpoint the exact problems. and save you $.
Thank you very much for your valuable advices. Actually that what I've been looking for, as far I'm an immigrant the american way of thinking is pretty much unknown for me and sometimes unexpected, but you pin pointing these problems. If you be so kind can you give me e-mail address to be able to reffer to expertise in the future. And I thinking about membership on this web site, which can save money for me. What is your advise on how much I can/should pay you tonight ? I have $29.00 on the balance...
I am satisfied with the % i get from What Just Answers Give me. If you would like to tip me it is aways appreciated! But don't feel obligated, a positive feed back would be nice. Again thanks for using Just Answers. Jim. You can get me here on ja.You can sen a personal message to dads mechanic and it will get to my e-mail.
I don't understand how web site payment and subscription system work. I had a $29.00 on the balance and as far as I understand was involved in promotional free trial with following low monthly fee afterwards, which is sounded more then nice to me, and after I probably clicked I Accept an Answer, my balance became a $0.00 Who should I address this question to, and can you help me on this? Ironically these site provides the legal-law expertise support too. Anyway like the way you cover/answer/review my questions.
Well I assume that the promotion was up to 29.00$ and Maybe a one time usage. I don't know what the subscription per month is. I guess if you think you will use the service on a regular basis it could be worth it, personally I would us it on a one time basis for a while.Jim
It said you re listed this is there more I can do for you. Jim
