asked by on

The mechanic checked and found that the driver side sensor needs to be replaced, quoted $877 CDN. I have no money to do the work right now.

My car has 140000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there, thanks for writing in. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose as a second opinion or to find any possible alternatives to correct this. There is a good chance this can be done cheaper with one of our experts.
