Q: Q: Engine light coming on

asked by on

Car is driving perfectly normal, but engine light has been on constantly for close to 5 months. Took it to private mechanic and had fuel pumps, senders, seals and lock rings replaced last month. Paid $224.00 for parts and labor. One to 2 days later, the engine light was back on. Took car to the Hyundai dealer for a second opinion. Told that there is obviously a leak somewhere but that they could not locate the issue. Told that with the engine light on the car would not pass the emissions test. They weren't able to locate the leak initially, had to have a "smoke test" done to locate the leak. This indicated that there is a leak in the seal of the fuel pump. It is now being suggested that I have the same parts replaced and I am being charged $618.75 for the repair. Any thoughts? Sounds awfully expensive and not entirely sure it will correct the issue.

My car has 110000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
