JA: How many miles are on the car? How old is the battery?
Customer: 92k miles, battery is at least 6 years old..
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Or have a friend do it..depending on the problem
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Saturn Mechanic should know about your Saturn?
Customer: I don't think so..wheel bearings and brakes replaced in February 2015..
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 Saturn Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central everyday. Please let me know exactly what you need from this conversation so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service.

Sorry for the long delay. I just got caught up and am seeing if the longest waiting customers still need help? If so let me know and I will get started on this concern.

Thanks Chris

Noises are the hardest for us to diagnose. Since it is occurring in park, can you lift the hood and get me an idea where the noise may be coming from?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I understand.. Unfortunately, I am at work, and my car is in my driveway. I just know it was an engine noise and not from the tires. Sorry.
