Customer Question

I had the check engine , the VSC and the trak lights come on. Took it to get fix, they said that the 100,000 pistons need to be replaced. $950
JA: Does the light stay on solid or does it flicker? Any noticeable performance problems lately?
Customer: It worked well for a week and the problem occurred again, the car studders in reverse,
JA: What is the model/year of your Lexus?
Customer: 2012 Es 350
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No I sent it back to my mech because it keeps coming back after I drive a few 100 miles
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: It just started to studder in drive, yesterday
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 Lexus Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
