did anyone mention a Haynes' manual? idk about out side the states but if you own a vehicle this is your best freind. it is a complete tear down & rebuild or you vehicle. i think it was may, i lost power steering and took a moment to look in my owners manual (which never tells you shit but) then looked over the entire engine to find i was missing the serpentine belt. checked my haynes' guide to see what might have made it happen and was able to get it to the closest repair (unfortunately a dealership) and sometimes when you at least are close to understanding whats going on they tend not to rip you off as much.
