Oh I am not in a happy mood. I touched base with the mechanic and my poor car needs the following
1) Oil Change-
2) Tune Up-causing the cough
3) Two new sensors
4) New exhaust system, including throttle plates and catalytic converter.-That is making splutter noise.
5) Front End Alignment-causing the shudder
Quoted repair price is: $1,000
Oh the things I'd like to say that are not really fit to print....................... I really wish I could head home for a very large whiskey right now.
