I took my car in on Jan 16,2012 and my engine light was on, and air bag
light on but I have been having problems with my car not starting and
battery recently replaced and car does start up but there was a
continual stuttering as if engine needed gas. I took my car in and
the mechanic said my car needed new ignition coils, replaced 2 and was
told I may have to do 2 more. However, the engine light and the air bag
light remained on. I took it back that same day but he indicated I would
have to leave my car for a day..due to family illness I couldn't spare
a day, tho he said car is ok for now. I went to do my emission inspection and it was there I found through the test that infinity in-
cated the problem was the ignition control module 4x. I feel my car
was misdiagnosed as problems continued and now a failed emission test.
What do I do next, and what cost estimate could I use as a guide?
I feel I shouldn't have paid for ignition coils as this was not the
problem. What can I do?
It was definately mis dioagnosed, i would try to get your money back for the coil repairs as it obviously did nt fix it, if it has a code for the 4x signal, it will cause these problems,and you most likely have a bad crankshaft position sensor, this sensor is about 150 dollars for the part and the labor to replace it is about 50 dollars,Tim
