My 2001 Toyota Yaris is due to have a MOT in February. I am aware that due to it using far too much fuel recently and other things happening , it has been suggested I will need to have a replacement ignition coil and also a new Alternator. My little car has run very well over the years, but I appreciate it is getting old. I just wanted to know, would it be best if I buy the parts myself, and ask a mechanic to fit them, or do I take it to a garage and get them to get it through the MOT and repair it? To be quite honest I have no large amounts in the Bank and am afraid that it will be an expensive job! Does anyone know a reasonable mechanic in the Ipswich area? Any idea what I am expected to be charged for this type of repair? I really do not know what is the best option. Any advice would be very welcome. Thanks in advance!
