One more thing, I am a woman and not an auto tech. However, I think a lot of diagnosing a car repair problem, is good listening, good communication, in addition to knowing what you are doing. Also a great deal of common sense is involved, as is living proof with my problem being solved. It is dumb to keep putting parts into a car costing money and time just to find the problem by process of elimination. Does that make sense? One guy even told me it could be my ignition switch. I cannot deal with "could be" as I do not have money to replace parts that are not needed in the first place. Now if I add up all these false diagnosis from all these auto techs by putting in all these parts, I would have put in a fortune that I do not have. It was not the ignition either. That is plain nonproductive. Auto diagnosis should not be guess work. I could not believe it when he said the computer was bad after I had my car towed to 4 auto tech places. It is just stupid to keep putting money and parts into a car and it does not fix the problem. One more thing, he showed me on the bad computer when he tapped it with a screwdriver the car stalled, so it was an intermittent problem, FYI anyone that is interested. So, common sense and good listening, and skill prevail. Thank you and Amen.
