....notice the lower case. The odds are that you have a vacuum leak. Any GOOD mechanic can fix your car. It does not have to be a dealer. There are at least a dozen or more good mechanics that read and post to this site. Check your vacuum and then check your fuel PSI. Your car is a fairly well understood vehicle. Find someone who will guarantee he will fix your car.
