    lasted about two years in light/normal driving conditions. i replaced with the same part hoping for two more years of peace. great quick fix. if your going for something more long term, you will spend more money.

        A:

        It could be a number of things causing this. Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. We highly recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable shop to have them take a look at it to determine the cause.
