HI! CAN ANYONE HELP ME AS I AM STILL HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY VEHICLE!

2004 Mitsubishi Lancer • 168,000 miles

My vehicle fuctuates with the shuddering as there is no particular time when driving it that I can pinpoint as to why it could be doing that! I was told that it could possibly be the coils but not 100% sure that I would need to get a diagnostic done on the vehicle - but in saying that the car really needs to be playing up so that it could give the technicians an accurate reading of the cause, also there would need to be lights coming up on the dash which would also be a good indicator - So I booked my car in for a diagnostic with KMart Auto's - some codes did come up apparently which did indicate the coils in which they had re-set the code but also my thermostat was replaced on top of that! I was also told that if the vehicle was still playing up to bring it back - well the vehicle still has the same problem and yes it was still playing up! Can anyone help me as I am feeling that I can't trust anyone at the moment!

Sorry, but the worst thing they did was clear the codes as the needed freeze frame data was erased.

You need another shop to do the proper diag that will determine the failure and give you a definite answer.

By the way why would they change the thermostat?

Did you have a cooling system issue? Do you know what numbers the codes were? That info would be helpfull.

Not that I know of - they wrote down some codes one that indicated it was the coils and another one that I am not sure of - I took my car to another mechanic and they suggested that my plugs need changing and a tune up - I did get one done about 12months ago - what do you think?
