Ok, so I had to call the dealer today because I could swear they never called me even though they claimed to have done so. Well here's what was wrong with my Cat: Failed MAF, recommend replace spark plugs and wires(?, aren't they coil on plug, oh well, never mind). The faulty MAF apparently was what kept the car from running after starting it up. Cost to replace you ask? about $560. You've got to be kidding me. And yes, I almost said this to the service advisor. Anyways, I get on the phone to AAA to get a towtruck to pick up my car. Obviously i'm not gonna let the stealer rip me off once again so I refused the work and got the car towed home. Cost for diagnosing problem: $135. Call up another Cadi dealer... er, I mean stealer and price for MAF is $187. No friggin' way! I think back to my days working for Saturn. The L-series has basically the same engine, why not see if the MAF is the same? One call placed to my old friend at Saturn dealer and he confirms my hunch. The MAF on L-cars is the same as the one on the Cat. One MAF from Saturn: $96.
Of course I still have to put it on once I get home from work tonight. But if this works, At least I know I saved myself about $300 give or take a few bucks. And hopefully, this will save others the time and money they otherwise would've ponied up at the dealer... er, stealer.
