      yes and no. but if I were you, just replace the whole cat. the tech who quoted you for that price seems fair to me. I replaced my own cat with an OEM and returned the core and so far the engine...

      I agree, alternator from autozone is not bad. I replaced mine with a Duralast and never had a problem so far.

      maybe you did not clean it up well on those areas. any small bit of dirt in there can cause a leak.

      check your exhaust if there's a leak somewhere in the flex pipe. shake it underneath and see if it moves. you might end up replacing your cat or air/fuel sensor and oxygen sensor.

      I think your best course of action is to just leave it alone and just wait if the water pump starts leaking or if you have issues later. I've tackled this myself and believe me, the tensioner if it...

      if you drive short distances, you will get that but if you drive longer, those things will disappear. that's the condensation that builds up inside when you don't get it to warm up enough.

      it will show up a code if it does not start. once it starts, the code goes away. so what you need to do is, if it does not start the first time, check for the codes right away. you'll get it.

      any reason you want to change the hubs? I think you should just change the pad and rotor if that's the only problem. changing hubs will be the last thing you want to do.

      did you check if there's fuel pressure? did you check if there's a spark? if there's no spark, it could mean you have a bad ignition coil distributor or ignition coil.
