I'm not really sure what it is as fas as an answer goes.. but just something would be nice. Sadly I can't afford to buy a new car, but on the other hand I'm having a hard time paying or the repairs on my car to keeps it half ways reliable...

Look, I know a lot of people have been busting on your car, and I know there is nothing you can do about the things that are happening. But I have to go with black jack on this one... even if it means driving a toyota,... you need a new car. It will be much cheaper in the long run to just get a new one, and pray to the good lord above that this doesn't start happening on that one. Go out and get a cheap chevy truck, it eats gas but those things never break, and they're hella cheap to fix. And for everyone's sake, stop trusting every mechanic you come in contact with. Find a shade tree mechanic somewhere that wont charge you an arm and a leg for a simple $20 repair. Cars are expensive, and you got the short end of the stick on that one. Sorry. Honestly, sell the car, buy a truck.
