Customer Question
Check engine light came...

Check engine light came on. kia Sedona 2008 ...running fine but took into dealer service...told me the clutch in automatic transmission is going out, should be safe for 6 month but the repair estimate is $2000. I am leary about doing anything since vehicle has 170000 miles on it...what would you do ,

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Solid

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sedona yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have not tried anything but since it is running fine, not sure

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That is all
