Great from start to finish, as always.

Great service!

Fenski is the best shop in Gwinnet County and they have the awards to prove it. I can't say enough good about this shop. My ranger ended up being totaled and they laid out all my options including doing all the necessary repairs but did not recommend it since the value of the truck was so low. The best part was even though I decided not to have the repairs done they still patched up the engine free of charge so I could drive it just long enough to find a replacement truck. Fenski will be getting all of my business in the future.

John, Ted & the guys @ Fenski put 4 new tires on my camper, inspected the brakes & repacked the bearings. For years, they have always treated my wife & I with the upmost respect & perform quality work with quality parts everytime

by - Verified Customer February 27, 2017

I was very impressed with Fenski. The staff was excellent and so was the service. I was very impressed with the fact that Fenski has a inspection sheet that they do their service from with numerous things that are to be checked and then the person who serviced the vehicle will come speak with you about what they found .

by - Verified Customer February 09, 2017

They did a great job and they have always been professional and courteous. The only issue I had with this service experience was that the car was leaking oil after the oil change. Had to take the car back because of a bad seal/gasket on the drain plug. Overall I highly recommend Fenski and I consider this experience a fluke.

I just got a simple oil change, but the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and the service was great. While changing my oil, one of the staff members noticed that I had a nail in one of my tires, and they fixed it free of charge! Great company, great price, great service. Will definitely be going back!

Didn't fix my repair the first or second time and feel like I paid too much for all the services. I believe they would not accept a 3rd visit and believe i'm now wasting my time and effort, and now i'm out a significant amount of money without a fully repaired car.

by - Verified Customer January 09, 2017

Thanks for the great work. The oil change price is a bit high but I want to support local business and you guys have excellent customer service and have earned my trust.

I brought my car in because the Mazda dealership said I needed a new oil pan. Fortunately the Fenski tech said the oil leak was from some loose screws and I did not need one. They saved me several hundreds of dollars.

My first service here. Very polite. Loud Christian rock in the lobby was overwhelming. Didn't take my car into a bay until 40 minutes after my appointment time. Hadn't called ahead for the oil filter for my car, so there was an extra wait until the Advance Auto Parts guy drove over with the filter. Would have been happier if I could have been in and out of there in 60 minutes or less, as it was only an oil change and a cooling system pressure check. Very fair price on the oil change itself.

You would need to check and verify any codes in the computer.
You may have grounding issues.
Verify injector pulse signal.
Verify coil signal and voltage.
Have you checked the catalytic converter? what was the fuel pressure at? should be 58psi. fuel volume looks good. no codes I assume? camshaft position sensor good? If no codes I assume so... back to the converter... do you have a scanner to look at fuel trims and upstream/downstream o2's?
trying to do it myself
I have to agree with others here. A Heater core replacement is not a job to be taken lightly. With a 6 hours labor estimate (and mind you that is for a professional mechanic will all tools at his disposal) it is quite a job and likely the entire dash will have to be removed from the vehicle. If you are a skilled mechanic or highly capable it is possible to replace it at home but I highly reccommend taking it to a trusted mechanic. The likely frustration and time committment associated with a repair of this magnitude attemptted at home is just not worth it.
I have to add brake fluid sometimes.
What type of vehicle are we dealing with? You could have one tail light out and a stuck brake light switch... if you have to refill the fluid constantly, you have a leak somewhere. The level will go down over time with brake pad wear but should never become so low that it would turn the inside warning light on, unless there was exreme wear on the pads. How often and how much are you adding brake fluid?

Normally if you had an issue with the clutch hydralic system it would affect shifting in all gears. replacing the slave cylinder is not too difficult but you will need to follow a bleed proceedure to remove the air from the system.

Sounds like yo need to pull the stereo out and connect through it and possibly connect the adapter to a power source. Have you tried google? Google can be a great resource. You may be able to find directions on removing the stereo. Although, without seeing the directions for the blutooth adapter, I am purely speculating here...
I have already tried replacing the actual ...
Sounds like you could have a bad lighting module or body control module if equipped or have an in-dash electrical issue. It sounds like it will require some diagnostic time to find the actual source of the problem.
turn signal and flashers do not work
Under the left end (driver's side) of the dash. It is the relay to the top left of the fuse block. The diagram Patrick sends you should show you more detail.
I recently had my alternator replaced and ...
Looks like Sentras have some history of stalling problems related to a few different areas of the engine management system, none of which suggest a faulty alternator. I wouldn't think the new Alternator was the cause of your stalling issue but I have seen some weird stuff. Sentras have seen their fair share of EGR issues, Crankshaft sensor isuues, distributor issues and ECM issues all that will create the stalling issue you describe. Do you get a check engine light with the stalling issue? Most likely, the only way you will get to the root of the issue, and an accurate answer for what's going on, is through some diagnostic time with a qualified technician. Find a GOOD Diagnostic tech. (like our lead tech Eric - or anyone else with a known reputation for excellent diagnostic skills). A good diagnostic tech is a lot cheaper and a lot more productive than blindly throwing parts at a vehicle to hopefully solve a problem.
Hope this helps.
btw - the buzzing relay is easily fixed, just replace the affected relay. If the bussing has gone, your probably ok. It was most likely buzzing due to the low voltage condition created by the bad alternator.
Turn the key and everything lights up but ...
Starter relay,solenoid or starter itself. Check all connections on the starter and engine grounds. Verify power to starter solenoid on starter when ignition switch is engaged. If you have power to the starter when turning the key, replace the starter. If you have no power to the starter when turning the key replace the relay since you have already done the switch. Be sure to check your fuses first!
heater not working already replace thermos...
I agree with Roy. You have coolant going somewhere. If the coolant level drops it creates an air pocket and can stop circulating to the heater core, causing the loss of heat. We would be happy to look at it for you.

My engine light came on flashing,used scan...
csubak30 is on the right track with what parts may cause this issue. There are others. However, the main concern is that the light was flashing. A flashing Ck engine light not only indicates misfires, but the flashing aspect indicates the engine is misfirig badly enough that it could cause damage to the emissions system, more specifically the catalytic converter due to the significant amount of unburnt fuel. The flashing indicates that at that moment the problem is serious enough to cause other significant damage to the engine or components.
They look like regular V belts,but I'm...
About $80 plus the belts. If you are unsure if they need replaced, find a reputable shop you trust and have them give you a second opinion. It should only take a few minuites to verify they need replaced or tell you they don't and it should be a free assesment. Matt Fisher - Fenski Automotive Center - Sugar Hill, GA
