Re: repair costs

Try going to pep boys. Your mechanic sounds like ALOT of the mechanics I used to employ. At least he makes a living. I'm not saying pep boys won't cost you money but they will get it fixed.

He's cheap but these repairs are becoming a real pain in my you know where. He says he can fix my oil leaks for about another 200.00 but with all the starting problems I'm having now I think I better ditch this thing asap. He recently put on a used distributor and that seems to have fixed my stalling problem (I pray) but it's still not easy to start. Turns over (no clicking) but almost seems it's not getting fuel or something. After a few tries it fires up but I have to give it gas to keep it running or else it dies immediately.. so heads up that might be in your near future! But I hope not. I don't know what to do, nobody can fix this thing!?
