Pretty expensive for a clutch disk!

The fuel pump is SUPPOSED to pump all the time.  Have they lost the 
fuel pressure regulator?  That would be a hard piece to lose since it 
is bolted to the sheet metal and there is no reason to remove it.  
I'm sorry, but it sounds like these guys are pretty clueless about 
your car, and you are footin' the bill.

I have almost any part you might want, but you will need to find out 
exactly what they lost first.  Get a description of about where the 
part would normally be located.  Then, when they figure out that this 
part STILL doesn't make it work we will have to decide whether I 
really want a vacation to Thunder Bay this year.  ;-)

Well it's closer for me than for almost anyone else!
