Also my C.E.L. was on...... It was never on when i dropped off my car to the shop....... And it has 130,000 miles on it........

42,115

Take it back to the mechanic and make him fix it.

I did...... He had to come bleed my brakes again so that i could make it back to his shop...... But if it isnt any of those problems, i dont know what else to fix........ I dont have the funds for a new car.......

And now its hard to shift the Clutch out of Park as well.......
