Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140, 00 miles
Yesterday I had the AC compressor replaced, the belt, freon, antifreeze flushed, etc. Today, the mechanic test drove the car and explained that it was skipping alot. He checked the engine and explained that cylinders #2 and #6 are dead, they need to be replaced. He can get them off a used engine with 81,000 miles for about $1600. This is added to the $600 fee for labor and repair from yesterday. The car was skipping slightly when put in reverse in the past few months, but not badly. No other problems other than the belt. Does this sound reasonable?
have the same problem?
