Chicago mechanic filter-I need some help finding a mechanic, a few stipulations inside. Guesses on estimates welcome, too.

I need to get my car fixed so I can pass the emissions test. I realize that it's long overdue, but I haven't had the money until recently.
So, I need a mechanic who is able to test my car, see why it failed, and fix it. I'm also on a budget, so I need someone who can diagnose the problem, give me an estimate, and then not charge me anything if I can't afford it right then. A free diagnosis/estimate, is what I guess I'm looking for, and also someone who's reliable and has fair prices. It's two women who own the car, and I don't want to go somewhere [again] that'll charge me more because of it.
Now, originally, when I went to have it tested, the report said that several systems failed to respond-it didn't necessarily say there was anything wrong, just that the computer system didn't cooperate....
Any guesses on how much that'll cost to fix?
