Any way this otherwise simple thing could lead to these bigger problems? I only have 80k miles and the car was running just fine until this point. I dont suppose I could ever prove it but I can't afford this kind of work right now...
Try calling some independent shops in your area...I think you will be surprised at how much less they will charge for the same job. You can search these forums for an independent in your area or check out, and additionally check reviews on yelp.
