Is changing a tie rod a big deal?
I just found out we have a loose tie rod and that it'll be 200 bucks to fix it. Is it a job that should be done by a pro, or can it be done by someone with a loose knowledge of mechanics? My father-in-law is a mechanic, but the only cars he has ever worked on are Crown Victorias because he works for the city garage. Should we just fork out the bucks?
I'm sorry, I probabaly should have put this in the "mechanical and maintenance" forum.
