    Suggested repair shops in San Jose area?

    St. Claire Cadillac has diagnosed my '99 STS's rough idle, stumbling acceleration and backfiring on the plugs and wires. Quite comically, they have quoted me $1,000 for the replacement job. Yep, one with three zeroes.

    Getting at the rear bank of plugs looks hard but not *that* hard; I'm guessing that any ASE-certified mechanic with access to a shop manual could do the job for a fraction of the price.

    Anybody know a good independent shop in the South Bay that you want to throw some business to?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have always gone to Jeff at IQ autoworks but that was for my Acura. He is always busy and he seems to be trustworthy. I couldn't tell you much more, but if you are going to a shop dont say how much the dealership was going to charge you, or else they will just use that as a baseline I would assume.
