You have the 2.5, so neither repair should be too pricey. Shop around if you don't already have a regular mechanic.

Did you ever figure out what caused the tcs lights to come on and the car jerking? I am having the same problem. Brought it to a mechanic (not dealer) after $1500. He gave up and told me to go to the dealer. This is driving me crazy. I have to put the car in neutral and restart while driving. any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm new to this site. An acquaintance of mine has allowed me to test this car for the weekend. He is asking $3000 for it plus the cost of tuned up and 3 new profile tires for it. It has 225000km on it, very and i mean very minor rust. A couple of things have raised my suspicion.
1 is when I accelerate, there is a high squeal of a noise....at first I thought it would be the transmission but it shifts find. Would this be the super charger needed to be cleaned out and the filters changed???
2 The car nudges when its in idle....I'm thinking that would be caused from the needing new spark plugs and coil kit. Am I right about this?
3. The engine light has been blinking...don't know for how long but its there.....does this happen....should I be concerned about this for any major damage?
4. Is he asking way to much for this car? I don't know to much about them but I do like the look and feel of it. I know the basics of the car like replacing all the filters, spark plugs and changing the oil but nothing on supercharge cold are intakes.
Can anyone suggest their expertise on this please before I make my decision. Oh and the owner has had done a safety on it and its good for another year. And its a right off from Auto Pac, but my friend has put in about 3k worth of repairs.....the car looks great though

The fuel filter and fuel pump are at the top of the fuel tank. To gain access, you remove your carpet on the floor of your trunk. You'll see a round access port with 3 bolts (I believe) holding it in place. Loosen the bolts and remove the cover. You'll see your fuel filter. The access hole isn't too big and if your hands are larger, you'll have a bit of time working to get the filter out and replaced.
Since the trunk isn't too big and I couldn't fit in my trunk and do the work, I had to perform the fuel filter swap by going through the access area in the middle of the rear seat. With the arm rest folded down, I then reached in with my smaller socket set and set forth with the task. I had some new hose clamps because I hate the OEM style and reusing them isn't the best idea. When all was said and done, it took me about 3 hours. Seriously. Just a few days before, I got a quote from a tire shop that does my wheel alignments for $140 to do the work. They wanted $60 for the filter and the rest was labor. In my case, this is clearly one task on the Millenia that I'd pay to have someone else do the work on.
