This is not a "how to" question but here's a reasonable answer: Your shop will generally charge an hourly rate to determine what the problem is. Generally the first hour is a given, and is not "pro-rated" or divided into parts of an hour. (twenty minutes therefore are billed as one hour) Then, depending upon what is found, the shop will give you a repair cost estimate ( IN MANY STATES, THIS ESTIMATE CANNOT BE EXCEDED BY MORE THAN 15% WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION) Many shops will apply all or part of diagnostics charges towards repair charge. You must ask about this before any work begins. In many states, upon your request (ask before work begins), shops must return to you any parts which were replaced, and must guarantee their work for at least 60 days (this may vary from state to state). The cost of the entire repair will depend upon the shops posted labor rate and the time it takes to do repair, plus the cost of the parts replaced. Now you know the how and why of repair pricing!!! Good luck!!!

I just purchased a used buick with 80,000 miles. When you step on brake sometimes it feels like it;s not stopping then when you let off brake it makes a noise in front.


Sounds like an issue with either the master cylinder or your anti-lock brakes. In either case have a competent shop look at it for you, it's safety issue.

1993 Buick Lesabre ...........antenna won't stop running and it's draining the battery.....can't find another motor assembly


For now would unplug it till you are able to find one.Sometimes all it is just the cable in the antenna mast that breaks and just may only require a new antenna to be installed and not the complete motor.

2004 Camry lurches forward when stopping.


Sounds like the torque converter isn't unlocking quick enough. Drive at 45mph,keep foot on gas and use other foot to touch the brake and watch the tach to see if it speeds up,when converter releases. Check trans fluid level hot.If it is more than a couple years old,change. Use the correct fluid for Toyota and add a bottle of Lubgard. Have the throttle positon senor scanned and check any idle control circuits. Throttle Body may need cleaning.

This is sometimes called the lurch, disconnect the battery for 30 mins to re-set the "memory" in the gearbox, this should solve your problem, the gearbox will re-learn your driving style. Make sure you have your radio code before you disconnect.

ABS light comes on sporadically. Then sometimes when at a slow stop lurches forward a foot or so. when I press harder on brake it stops. Have had mechanical of brakes checked and all seems to be well....


hello, it is more than likely an air bubble is trapped in your ABS pump itself, if so, it will need to be purged! a speed sensor could turn on ABS light, but will have no affect on hydraulic pressure at a stop, only an ABS (skid) stop. good luck marty
ps.......the pump needs to be purged with a san tool

go to an independant mechanic.a dealership will try to tell you things are wrong that arent and that you need to fix this or that while they have it there and then want to charge you 70 dollars an hour for the time they spend working on it.
