In the good old days a mechanic could pinpoint the failure and repair the vehicle. Today's "techs" are just parts replaces and take guesses many times at what is wrong. My brother in law has had things go wrong, they suggest a part and after they put it in it still isn't right and they put the next part in and finally got it right. He refused to pay for the first part and wouldn't let them take the part out either. He said its not a game and there aren't any do overs when working on his car. They let him keep the part which was $450.
Don't let them guess on parts and labor if you're footing the bill.
