Hello,

Let me suggest this.

Go by your local Auto Zone and have them pull code and see what they get.

While there ask them to price the valve. If they give you a lower price than what the garage quoted ask them the list price. In most cases you can by the part over the counter cheaper than what a garage will charge.

Post P**** codes here
