, feedback on repairs
My car was misfiring and i took it to R.W.Autos who seemed to know what my car and said it was probably a faulty coil. They said they put it on their computer and diagnosed the problem which was a catalytic converter and a sensor. They said i would need 2 new converters and a set of sensors, and i should get these. New they cost about £3,000, so get reconditioned. The labour cost would be about half days work, 3-4 hours.
Relatives advised caution and i took my car to my usual garage which diagnosed on their computer, whilst i watched, a faulty coil, changed it while i waited in about 15 minutes, and charged me £40. The car drives perfectly again. The mechanic here also said that if the catalytic converters and sensors had been changed, it would have made no difference to the misfiring.
You should draw your own conclusions
