Turn on the car there is a knocking sound at the fan belt in the engine. Took it to a mechanic, he gave me the following:
"engine holds good oil pressure. As engine warms up to operating, temperature oil fall off substantially (knocking sound). When RPMs are increased the oil pressure increases as well and there is no noise. This would indicated the oil pump is working just fine and there is no blockage in the pump. Solution. Loss of oil pressure is most likely due to clearance connecting rod bearings engine replacement is recommended. Cost $5500.00
Told it I will take the care and put back in my garage because a I did not have that money. Went to pick up the car.
When I got to his place he told me that they made a mistake. No need to replace the engine and the cost to fix the problem will be $1525.00
What should I do? I have lost confidence in the garage. Do you really knows what is wrong with the car? I drove the car to his garage which is 10 minutes from my home.
have the same problem?
