They're honest, they want to service the vehicle before it needs repairs that will cost you a lot of money, they actually make sure the work is done and recommend a time to come back in.

When they put my motor mounts in they broke my air conditioner. They smashed the casing for the fan, then they proceeded to stay that it was like that when I brought it in.

Questions Answered by Havasu Auto Care
There is a faint humming noise coming from...
It sounds to me like the fuel pump is staying engaged - I would locate and remove the fuel pump relay and see if your noise goes away - If it does your repair may be as simple as installing a new fuel pump relay - Relays can stick, usually this is cause from the starting / charging system having low voltage. So even if the relay fixes the noise - be sure to check your battery and alternator for proper operation
if we turn the air conditioning off, the c...
I would suspect an issue with the electric cooling fans - you didn't mention if the air conditioning also stops blowing cold air at idle? If the air is staying cold and the engine is running fine but the gauge is showing hot but not truly overheating, its possible you have a wiring issue with the gauge.
breaks are locked up help
I would highly suspect brake fluid contamination - if your brake fluid has been added to and any other fluid besides clean DOT3 Brake fluid has been installed your system, it is contaminated and more then likely all the parts containing rubber products in your system (Master Cylinder, Wheel Cylinders, Calipers, Brake Hoses, ABS Pump) will need to be replaced to make the brakes safe and operational again.
I was driving home, approx 60 mph, with AC...
I would suspect the Blower Motor Relay or the Blower Motor Resister Pack - I would also check the amp draw of your blower motor to make sure the Blower Motor itself is not at fault
My 95 ford probe engine was sitting for 1 ...
I would suspect low fuel pressure - when fuel is let sit for a period of time it tends to varnish (smells like paint thinner) once this happens it can cause issues with the in-tank fuel pump - it's possible the vehicle has enough pressure to idle but the pressure or volume falls off when the engine is under a load
It sounds like it is turning over very fas...
I would suspect a fuel pressure problem. Did the vehicle sit for any period of time (1 month or longer) in our desert heat fuel can turn bad very quickly - many times when a vehicle sits with very low fuel in the tank the fuel will turn to varnish and cause issues with the in-tank fuel pump.
To drain the fluid from the master cylinder fluid holding area, we use a vacuum sucker and suck the fluid out, then the fluid can be refill without the need of bleeding. If you are asking about a brake fluid flush, the fluid is flushed through the master cylinder and bleed, through the bleed valve at each wheel until clean fluid is showing.
First thing that comes to my mind would be a problem with the alarm system (if equipped)- The second thing I would look into would be the Ignition Switch itself. You need to check and see if the starter is getting 12 volt power at the solenoid (small wire start wire, not the big battery cable), when you are turning the key and the vehicle is not starting - If you are getting 12 volts, more than likely you simply have a faulty starter and you will need to warrantee that one out (it happens all the time!) - If you are not getting 12 volts at the starter when turning the key to the start position, please refer to my first 2 suggestions
I changed the fuel filter what it could be?
First are you sure the fuel gauge is correct? If the tank is empty or close to it and the gauge reads 1/2, you simply have a gauge or sending unit problem - If you truly have 1/2 a tank of fuel when its acting up, it sounds like something is going on inside the fuel tank, such as the line coming off the fuel pump has a hole and is pushing/sucking air when the tank level goes down or the fuel pump is not sitting in its proper location and cannot pick up fuel when the level is lower.
While the car is running and or off i can ...
I would check the Evap Canister, these canisters are made to catch fuel vapor, the evap canister is vented, so in the remote case it fills up with fuel you will smell fuel around the vehicle whether its running or not, plus in most cases you will not see a leak...If this is the case you will need to replace the evap canister.
If you are talking about a panic situation, the brake pedal feel will be hard as the ABS System does its job, this is normal - If you are talking about a hard brake pedal during normal driving situations - It sounds like you might be having a power brake booster issue - One simple test you can try while sitting in the drivers seat - (Engine Not Running) Depress the Brake Pedal a few times and hold it down, start the vehicle while holding the brake pedal, when the vehicle starts, if the brake pedal falls away (Goes further towards the floor)the power brake booster is getting vacuum and working....If the Pedal stays the same, the power brake booster could be faulty or the vacuum source to the power brake unit could be interrupted.

I'm assuming you are removing the cylinder heads yourself, if that is the case, this question could best be answered by a good machine shop - the one we use in Lake Havasu City,AZ is JD Machine (928) 855 1411 -- If you are looking for a complete job price, it would be best for you to take the vehicle to a trusted shop and let them diagnose the issue and then they would be able to estimate the proper price for the correct repair for your situation and vehicle..
