First off, let me just say that I know absolutely nothing about cars. So feel free to speak to me like an idiot.
Moving on, I drive a 2004 Crown Vic with almost 92,000 miles on it. I recently purchased it from a private seller around a month ago. The Check Engine light came on just today, so I went to a local service center where they told me there’s something wrong with the fuel tank (either the pressure or the voltage? I feel like an idiot for forgetting exactly what he said, and he didn’t put it on the invoice… just that my car would need a “smoke test”). Now, they’re going to charge around $95 for the smoke test (minus the $45 for the check engine diagnostic they did)… he was a little vague on what the cost would be for the repair (I guessed because he was unsure about what the problem exactly was). What do you think am I looking at price-wise? And do you think it’d be safe for me to continue driving it until I can get it fixed? (He couldn’t do the test/repair regardless until Monday.)
Thank you so much for your time in reading. I greatly appreciate any and all responses.
