Hello, This is a fairly difficult part to replace. I would highly recommend bringing the car into the mechanic. The part may not be expensive, but you may do further damage to your engine if you try to install it yourself and do not have the proper technical know-how. If you are worried about being overcharged by the mechanic, read this article before you go: http://www.ehow.com/how_7400_prevent-auto-repair.html Best of luck! CarGrrl
