Thanks for the reply. Read up on your diagnosis and it sounds like it's it. Did a search and everyone else's symptoms sound the same or similar to what I have. Any recommendations? Possible to do it on my own if I had a lift and tools? I haven't done any searching on getting parts yet; but if you could give me a ballpark idea, that would be great.
I don't think i'm in warranty anymore. I have racked 175,000km on the car and the new car warranty in canada for the lancer goes up to 160,000. Is there another, deeper, warranty that I'm not aware of? Thanks again in advance.
