My truck is not idling, dies right away. Sometimes. They said it is the air control. My question is how much should I expect to pay for repair. I took it to a shop he would not quote a $ amount "it will be costly". I am female and seem to get screwed over when I look seek services. Could you please give me idea. I am unemployed at this time and have to watch my pocket book.

I tried to log in on my new email
Raines. Gail@outlook. Com you said its already used. That worries me
Do you
have the same problem?

THIS MAY BE SORTA SIMPLE!

SORTA WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED. KNOWING THIS, I MAY BE ABLE TO SHOW YOU HOW TO SAVE SOME DECENT $$$ ON THE PART

WHAT ENGINE DO YOU HAVE?

ARE YOU SOMEWHAT MECHANICAL. OR ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE WHO IS SCARED TO CHANGE THE BATTERIES IN YOUR TV REMOTE. THIS AIN'T HARD AT ALLTO DO, AND I'M "GOING ON" THE OTHER FELLERS' DIAGNOSIS

IF YOU WERE IN MY REGION OF THE US, I COULD BUY THE PART AND INSTALL IT FOR $69.18 !

. YOU CAN BUY IT AND INSTALL IT FOR THE SAME AMOUNT, IF YOUR RESPONSE HAS THE RIGHT INFO!

I HAVE ALREADY DOWN LOADED THE 4.3 AND THE 2.2 DIAGRAMS OF THE SITUATION.I JUST NEED TO KNOW WHICH ONE TO POST

DOES THIS LOOK LIKE YOUR PUPPY?

http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_mass-air-flow-sensor-bwd_20971088-p?searchTerm=maf

A CONNECTOR AND 4 SCREWS

................LOOKS PRETTY HARD!

OVER HERE ON THE EAST COAST.....I'M IN S.C.

"ADVANCE AUTO PARTS" IS ONE OF OUR STORES

YOU "MIGHT" BE ABLE TO ORDER THIS PART........'COURSE THERE WOULD BE A LITTLE SHIPPING CHARGE

..................REASON I SAY ORDER IT, NOT GET IT LOCAL IS IF YOU WILL PUT THAT IN YOUR CART ALONG WITH ANOTHER ITEM YOU MIGHT DESIRE....LIKE LETS SAY A TIRE GAUGE THAT COSTS AT LEAST $5.O2..........THIS'LL GET YOU TO THE "OVER $110 MARK"

..........AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?

IF YOU WILL ENTER "A124" IN THE "PROMO CODE BOX"................IT'LL KNOCK OFF $40 ! ! ! ! !

IF YOU'LL KEEP THE "ADD ON ITEM" "SMALL"..........SHIPPING SHOULD BE MINIMAL!

I KNOW THAT IF YOU HAD A PROBLEM, YOU'D HAVE TO SEND IT BACK..........CHANCES ARE, EVERYTHING WILL GO SMOOTH!

I "OPT" TO "PICK UP AT STORE"......AS IT IS LOCAL FOR ME....I'D BET,YOU COULD SAVE MAYBE $30, ONCE THE SHIPPING CAME OFF THE TOP.......YOU NEED TO OPT FOR "SHIP TO HOME"

THERE IS A "$70 CORE CHARGE" ......ONCE YOU SEND THE OLD ONE BACK, THEY MOST LIKELY PUT IT BACK ON YOUR CARD

SO UP FRONT YOU ARE LOOKING AT (WITH THE ADD-ON EXTRA ITEM) $110.01 (OR SO) ...PLUS $70 CORE....SHIPPING........MINUS $40.00 PROMO CODE.......POSTAGE TO SHIP THE OTHER BACK

IF THIS STORE IS AVAILABLE TO YOU......OPT FOR THE STORE P/UP...TURN THE CORE IN THERE

FOR THIS TO WORK FOR $40, THE PURCHASE MUST BE OVER $110....GOTTA BUY IT ONLINE

HERE'S HOW I'VE BEEN DOING THIS........LOTS OF TIMES FOR ME AND FAMILY AND FRIENDS

http://www.2carpros.com/questions/2001-dodge-neon-milage-just-want-put-fliuds-their-locations

I LIKE IT!....DO YOU?

THINK YOU CAN PERFORM THIS HARD TASK....OR THE NEIGHBOR KID WHO WORKS ON HIS OWN CAR???

Dear two car guys,
Thanks for your support. It kept me from spending $288.00 for repair. I wanted to share my favorite toy with you.
Thank you for your time in this matter. Gail

SO LIKE WHAT APPROACH DID YOU USE. LOCAL OR THE ADVANCE AUTO PARTS WAY?

EITHER WAY.I'M SURE "YOUR LABOR 'EFFORT' CHARGE" MUSTA BEEN TERRIFYING!

SO IS IT GOOD TO GO NOW, OR ARE YOU GONNA ATTACK IT SOON?

HERE'S MY OTHER BABY. MUCH MORE PRACTICAL THAN A CAR! (YOURS IS NICE, FOR A CAR PERSON!). YOU ALREADY SEEN ONE, HERE'S THE OTHER.I'VE HAD 5 OTHER JEEP CJs. NUTHIN' ELSE, SINCE THEY LET ME ON THE ROAD IN 1981
