Second owner of sedan with 88K miles in what I believe is better than average condition…
A few days ago, when starting car after filling up, I heard a “weird” and “unfamiliar” noise for about a second… Thought noise could possibly be from another vehicle on the gas station property.
Now, a few days later I hear this awful sounding noise each time I start the car and it scares the bejezus out of me! Once started, no noise, no problems. Runs great!
Three mechanics state: …Bad ignition. …Bad trans plate. And, bad starter! Range of repair, $350-$700.00? Parts - $100 - $225.00?
Which diagnosis is close to correct? Why so much labor? Is this the beginning of the end for this car?
What’s a girl suppose to do?
In advance thank you!
