Hello Car Talk Community,
About a week ago I was driving my Pontiac 2003 Grand Am V6 and it began to violenty shake and the “check engine light” came on and started blinking. I then immediately took it to the mechanic It has been with the mechanic for 6 days and they were unable to locate the problem. They called me today and I was told that I have no compression in one of the cylinders (I have done business with them before and felt comfortable in that I wasn’t being taken advantage of). They quoted me $1,600 is that a fair price? It comes with a 2 year or 24,000 mile warranty? Also, is there any problems in the future with getting a cylinder replaced i.e. other parts of the engine that might correlate?
