Camron did a great job! His knowledge saved me a lot of worry & money. Many thanks for clearing a VSC light and getting my CD player un-jammed!! Thanks to Richard for keeping our cars running.

Very kind owner and great service.

by - Verified Customer April 27, 2017

My van would not start at the store on a Friday afternoon so I called Avenue Automotive. They sent a tow truck to get my van and started work immediately. They called me later that day to tell me my van was ready. I was very surprised and more pleased that the job was done so quick.

by - Verified Customer April 19, 2017

Honestly, I've been to many shops because my vehicle needs a lot of work. However, Avenue Auto was the first shop that I've visited where I felt that the service was genuine and quick. From the customer service to the comfort in general, I sincerely enjoyed my time there and appreciate the way they took care of my car. Will never go to another shop from now on.

Great work as always. Friendly and informative.

by - Verified Customer March 14, 2017

Never had a problem with them. They did explain that my refrigerant for my AC was low. They recharged it but said they could not find the leak. Told me that they used a dye, so if the AC stopped cooling, to bring my car back in and they would trace the leak. Always get great service here. I would recommend them to anyone.

My car needed more repairs than I originally thought but everything was explained to me in a way I could understand and I also had the opportunity to decline repairs that were not immediately necessary. My car passed inspection and it has been a couple of weeks without any issues with my vehicle. Great customer service and great work!

I don't think they had screened correctly. It wasn't fixed correctly and he didn't know it had a small leak in the radiator. The guy fixed the problem, got into the motor for the small leak in the radiator. There was no problem, come to find out a small leak in the radiator, something happened, not on purpose, anyone can make a mistake.

Questions Answered by Avenue Automotive
Could you provide some more details about the door jam? Does the door latch feel like it is working? Has there been an incident that caused the jam (wreck, etc.). Does it open from either the inside or the outside, or is it jammed both ways?
I changed the actuator and closed the door...
Sounds like you didn't hook all the necessary components back up. Door panel would need to be pulled and visual inspection of the linkages would need to be performed.
I have changed the bulb on both sides and ...
Could be a dimmer switch or relay. Probably would need to be diagnosed by a shop with automotive electrical experience who could review the electrical diagram and map out powers and grounds.
My car has these symptoms: TSB-eng131 may ...
THE KNOCK PINGING NOISE "TERM" IS USUALLY "DETONATION". USUALLY THIS IS ASSOCIATED WITH TEMP RUNNING HOTTER THAN NORMAL, CARBON BUILD UP OR FUEL. DIDN'T FIND TSB RELATED FOR THIS. WHERE DID YOU GET THE TSB131...WE DON'T SHOW THAT CODE FOR THIS CAR DOCUMENTED?
Check engine light is not on and in the mo...
This really is a situation where a technician would need to have the vehicle and diagnose it. The description is to vague to really give any direction. We apologize.
My car air conditioning works perfectly. B...
Sounds like it could be a heater core issue. If so, the part isn't expensive, but it shows to be a 6.5hr labor job. Often times the heater core is very difficult to get to. We would be at the low end of the RepairPal estimate if you needed to have it done.
I pulled in my driveway and placed the car...
Just to clarify...the car won't shift out of park and you can't start the vehicle? If this is the case, does the engine turn over when you try to start, or just click and no other response?
How long should motor mounts last (miles)?
We would estimate about $400 - $500 parts and labor would be a realistic budget. As far as how long they should last, there are a lot of factors to consider and no really good answer. You probably could get a lifetime guarantee on the parts from a reputable shop, and 12-24 month warranty on the labor.
The car has a vinyl top that is cracking ...
Do not believe that can be "fixed". You probably could try to maintain it at it's current condition by applying some protectant to it, but you most likely are looking to have to replace it if you want to restore it to new or like new condition.
If you have the transmission already, the labor itself is going to run you about $650 - $900 depending on the shop. It is a 7.5 hour job roughly. If you require a rebuild on an existing transmission it would be more.
This happened today, tried turning a/c off...
Sounds like your blower motor needs to be addressed or replaced. As far as checking yourself, that all depends on your technical ability and confidence level. Here are some videos on how to do it...if that is your problem. We always recommend a diagnosis by a certified mechanic to ensure you don't end up wasting money replacing good parts.

There are a number of reasons a car might shake while at highway speeds. Improper tire balance is usually the most common cause. However, you could also have some poor steering and suspension components that are causing the problem. Lastly, you could have improper tire wear. Plus, the term "shake" can mean a lot of different things in the auto world. Best thing to do is get it to a reputable shop and let them diagnose it for you and then you can know exactly what the problem is.
In short, get it diagnosed. Air bags are an important safety issue and a light is an indicator that they will not work should they be needed. There is no single reason that could be causing the light to come on, but the fact that it is one tells you something is wrong.
I have been having an issue with smoke com...
If the smoke is gray, it is typically valve seals. If the smoke is black or really dark, then it could be an injector leaking. Unfortunately, the color or shade is important to knowing which way to lean.

Does the vehicle run rough at all when first started?
When in drive it points at N, etc.
That is most likely an issue with your "prndl shift indicator". One of the staff here has a 98 explorer that is on its way to doing the same time. It can get off over time. There also could be some hardware loose that is causing the prndl shift indicator to not work correctly. It is not a problem with the transmission itself.
when it stop runing the headlights went of...
Several areas this could be coming from, but it leans electrical...possibly with the BCM. We would recommend that you get it to a certified shop for a diagnosis.
car has been sitting for 3 weeks in the ga...
Most common issue for this is The crankcase ventilation system should maintain a minimum amount of vacuum at the oil fill cap. If the vacuum level is greater than 3/4", the ventilation valves will need to be replaced. The valves are on the top of the valve covers and can be replaced individually. A failure of the valves will create too much vacuum in the crankcase which pulls oil into the intake manifold.

To perform a compression test requires a factory scan tool that will set the valve lift to a defined position.
Have a problem starting my Audi A6. I'...
We just received a 2006 Audi A6 with the same problem. We were able to find error codes in the Access/Authorization module. Clearing the codes in the module allows the car to start again. You will need a repair center with the right equipment to get directly in to this module, as it is not a typical "check engine" type of code. We aren't sure how long clearing the code lasts, or what caused the code to trip in the first place...but assumed to be the module mentioned here is going bad. We will test the vehicle over the next couple of days to see if code resets and access is denied again.
car is making a loud roar from back of car...
Could be as simple as mud or debris in brakes, shields coming loose or possibly a wheel bearing/hub going out. Try removing the tire and inspecting all components to eliminate debris. Check for rear tire movement left to right or top to bottom.
Standard A/C diagnostic in our shop would be to evacuate the refrigerant to verify there is enough in the system. If the system has the correct amount of refrigerant, then we re-charge and check pressures and component functionality. If they system is low on refrigerant, you have to figure out why, as it has a leak in the system somewhere. This is usually accomplished by putting a dye back into the system with the refrigerant to detect where the leak is coming from.

All that said to show that there isn't an easy answer to your question. There are several components to a working a/c system and would most likely need to be diagnosed by an a/c technician to find the definitive answer.
