I have to fix my transmission fluid temperature sensor circuit
JA: When was the last time your transmission fluid was checked? Changed?
Customer: Have not done that at all. who would do that for me and how much would that cost
JA: What is the model/year of your Kia? I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: 2011 Kia Sorento
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I took it to the dealer and they said it will cost me over $600 which I cannot afford
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Kia Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
