I noticed my Taurus had a minor engine trouble yesterday (1/3/04) on the
way to Burlington, Vermont. (Yes, I live in Vermont.) I saw that engine
light come on and stay on. It seems like the emission system is
malfunctioning and I could smell a lot of gas burning while driving on the
road. It could also be something else in the engine that is malfunctioning.
My car has an extended warranty up to 100,000 miles. My car has 45,500 miles
on it. I took the car to the dealer to their service department to see if I
could have it serviced. The dealer said that they didn't have anyone on
Saturday to do that kind of work. So, I just drove my car back home and let
it park in my driveway until I can get it serviced. The car is drivable at
this time and needs to be serviced soon. I'm on a very tight budget and
don't know if I can afford the repairs. I hope warranty would cover the
repairs. Is it an expensive repair for the engine or the emission system?
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
