I have a 2010 Ford Taurus and it has about 190K miles. My car suddenly stopped running a few weeks ago and the repair shop said it needed a new starter. I replaced the starter and now it runs, but it frequently stalls whenever I come to a stop. The strange part is that it runs fine on the freeway and it can reach 60-70mph easily, but I have only have problems during idling. I had another shop run some diagnostics and the check engine light is on.
Here is what their diagnostics said.
Technician believes timing chains are stretched/camshaft phaser bad. P0018 Cam position retarded P0302 Cylinder 2 misfire P0022 Cam crank correlation bank 2 P0012 Intake cam retarded P0016 Cam/crank correlation bank 1
The estimate the shop gave me was 10 hours of labor for $950 just to have the engine torn down to do further diagnostics.
I know something is wrong with the car, but I think I could get a better price for this.
What do you think I should about this? Do you think this diagnosis is ac
My car has 190 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The diagnosis seems to be what may be causing the many different codes since a timing chain and phasers can cause the stalling. The cost quotes is not out of line.
