1999 Ford Escort Automatic 80,000 miles
Out of nowhere I drove fine and when I got to the park I waited with my car on for friend and car gave a jerk so I turned it off really quick. When I went to turn it on the engine would start but the car wouldnt drive forward or reverse. I left and came back the next morning to get it and it turned on and drove so I tried making it home but it stalled and I had to pull over. The engine went from running but car not going to engine not going at all. Towtruck driver was telling me to take it to junkyard for 150$ and took me only to his friends autoshop one kid came out and said theres still compression it can be salvaged may just need a header but then driver said wait and got his friend to tell me it was not salvageable. Seemed like he jsut wanted my money so I said iw ant to fix it he took me somwhere else they said its looking good just probablly needsd header then call me and tell me it needs a new engine for $3190 now I dont know if I get it towed to a more trusted autoshop or if I have it bought and towed as junk for free and buy a cheap used car. Any help would be sooooo much appreciated! Thanks ps this car has never been in an accident but it also did have fluid leaking out of the bottom
have the same problem?
