Hello all! Last August, my 2000 Taurus SE began sputtering and doing funny things upon acceleration until the engine light came on. Mechanic replaced EGR Vacuum Regulator and the EGR Defferential/Pressure Feedback sensor.
Well, now the same thing is happening all over again, only my mechanic had surgery last fall and, due to post-surgical complications, is not back to work. He is a lovely man, sole proprietor, so no one else but him.
Something related to the EGR was replaced in March 2007 also, different mechanic than above, all he wrote was EGR on the slip.
In July 2008, the same mechanic who replaced EGR in March 2007 replaced the rack and pinion steering column to the tune of $600+. Power steering fluid leaking again and a different mechanic altogether said the rack and pinion steering column needed replaced.
HELP! Is this normal to have repairs made over and over again? I take care of all preventive maintenance and don't drive like a maniac, so what gives?
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks so much.
