When I bought this car, we wisely got the warranty with it, which paid for itself about 3 times over.
Without the warranty, it'* a bit more costly, for sure, but this is the first major snafu I've had since it expired.
What we found out:
The coolant was already leaking into the engine.
The crank sensor is faulty --- can't find the code.
The ignition module is faulty.
They'll be working on the sensor and module today. The intake; oil change; fuel filter change have all been done.
The price is now about $1,500.00 by the time we pay the 'Governor Pretend' ( Christine Gregoire, winner by 3 recounts... ).
