Most recently, the service engine soon light comes on about a block away from the mechanic's garage. And so I return for more work. This time, they worked on a fuel injector and replaced a leaking gasket on the intake manifold.
Last time, two weeks ago, when having an oil change, I mentioned the above-mentioned light was on. The computer did not show what was wrong. I ended up getting new front brakes, though, which were needed.
They also changed the transmission oil, and then a plastic part on the cooler line broke suddenly a day later. Needless to say, transmission fluid gushed out like blood from an artery. The mechanic saw the lake of fluid under the car when he came in the following morning and found it back for more. Fortunately, he is very honest and fixed it and cleaned the goop off the engine and belts.
This car leaks constantly. There are various drips and stains on the driveway floor at all times.
It is starting to demand more oil, MORE OIL. I put in a quart or two between the usual 3,000 mile or three-month changes.
