1986 Buick Electra 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 149000 miles
I just picked up my car from the trans. Shop. I took it out on the Highway and first noticed my cruise control does not work. Next I noticed while driving in the city, going to a halt, at zero the car will jerk very hard. When I picked up the car I was told my engine mount was bad and had to be replaced, within 30 to 60 days. Well I have the car for less than a week and it already seems to be getting worst (jerking), the engine vibrates roughly at stops. To top it off the engine light begins to come on and stay on for at least 15 to 20 minutes, this never occurred before dropping it off. The jerking did from time to time. Now I'm told they will have to remove the alternator and compressor in order to add a new mount. I feel I'm being taken to the cleaners. Why wouldn't they replace the mount while putting in the remanufactured transmission? Can I use my warranty to get them to replace the mount and not charge me for labor? Can the engine light be because of the unstable engine?
have the same problem?
