2nd part of question. Guy who towed me to the mechanic was a mechanic himself, I went to him and explained that the pop sound was still happening. He examined car and thought that it was because of a bad motor mount. Car was shaking at stop lights and yes, the motor bucked like a bull which he showed me.
Fixed the front motor mount only. Said the back wasn't broken.
Drove home, immediately noticed pop still this there.
gas pedal and acceleration suddenly now acting funny (i.E not consistently moving through gears, and seems even jumpier than before--though the vibration is gone. I push hard on the gas and it takes a second before it reacts in some cases.
Can the mechanic 2 have F**ked up my car? I read somewhere that new motor mounts need to settle in--is that true? Is this why the gas/acceleration is suddenly weird---I am now not sure what to do. Mech 2 said to bring it back but not sure I can trust the work even though he is cheap and he will fix whatever gratis.
I think the first mech was sloppy and corrupt and the second one was nice but maybe not as good as I hoped.
if you want to hear the popping sound, and need a vid, email me, and i'll send to you. I can also do a vid of the new gas problem.
have the same problem?
