Well, problem is I don't know enough about this and can only go on theirs or other mechanic's advice. I'd rather do it correctly, than a quick fix that will not permanently solve the problem. Unfortunately I'm not well versed enough to make that call in this case.
Right now it will cost me $650 or so.
