Id opt out for another car.these shops can tell you it will cost this much or that much then when its all said and done it ends up costing even more than they quote you in the beginning.opt for the hoopty thats what id do,,,

NO! It is the Fuel Pump and Possibly the Fuel Pump Relay. Don't spend all that Money on repairs to Finance a Mechanics Snap On Tools Habit!
