Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Ok first thing is we need to see what the codes are in the computer, do you have access to a scanner?

No I don't have access to a scanner
UK Auto Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

More than likely this is going to be a misfire problem, but the codes will let us know for sure

Ok. What does the misfire mean?
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Will it be a costly thing to fix at a garage ?
UK Auto Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

misfire is when one of the cylinders is not getting spark properly

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Ok
UK Auto Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

without knowing the codes it will be hard to say but if its just a missfire condition, and lets say you have a coil bad and need plugs it could be around 400

Will I be able to buy the part myself and get it fixed at a garage to minimise costs
UK Auto Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

you sure can, so maybe get the diagnostics at the shop and then tell me what they say and I can help guide you though the repairs

sounds good! ill be around later to help

Please let me know if you have any more questions.
Customer satisfaction is my number one goal. Giving me nothing less than a 5 star rating would be appreciated very much. You can do this rating at the box on the upper right hand corner. This will not close our chat session and at no extra charge we will still be able to talk about any other issues you may have for free! Providing a rating is the only way I will receive credit for my work with you. Negative ratings do not result in a refund so If you’re not satisfied with the work we have done so far please respond more and let’s get your question figured out. Thanks Shawn!
