I took my Pathfinder to the dealership after the "service engine soon" light appeared and, as a result of their tests, was told I needed to replace the Charcoal Canister, Vent control valve, Purge Volume Control Solenoid and Press Sensor. They quoted $1150 + tax. I was also told the rear main was leaking and that would cost more than $1,000. I am writing because in the last 6-9 months we have, replaced the: clutch, engine solenoids, timing sensor and timing belts and this car is really beginning to cost us a ton of money. So, I have two questions: (1) does the quote for the Charcoal canister etc fix seem high? (2) do I have to have the rear main replaced per their suggestion? (3) At what point in time should I throw in the towel on this car and replace it with a new car?
have the same problem?
