Whatever they did, they did not fix the problems with the car. We have to take our car back to be seen again so they can fix the problem.

Dave, Cory and company, Actually, I've had my 2001 Chevy Lumina in your shop twice this winter to remedy an inadequate heat output problem with the vehicle. During the first appointment the water pump was discovered to be leaking so was changed. Although unrelated, the serpentine belt was discovered to be worn so was also replaced. The heat output was not improved. The second time I brought the vehicle in the thermostat was changed. Again no improvement in the heat output of the vehicle. It gets just warm, but not comfortable or anywhere near toasty. If I'm tight on time to get to work or an appointment and the windshields of my cars are frosty, I always take another vehicle instead of the Lumina because it takes way longer to thaw out. I have a semi-dumb stock factor temperature gauge which maxes out at 260 degrees. Even when the vehicle has clearly been running more than long enough to be fully warmed up, the gauge never gets close to reflecting a mid-scale indication. I approximate it is registering about 120 degrees. That seems wrong as all my other vehicles provide more heat than I can stand after warming up. Is the gauge reflecting engine temperature or the temperature of the water making it to the heater core? I'm pretty sure most cars are designed to run with engine temperatures of 185-210 degrees, right? Well anyway, I checked blogs on line and found that the Lumina 3100 series, even back in the 90s is known to have this problem. I viewed a customer video who troubleshot this problem on his 1997 Lumina changing everything in the system including the water pump, the thermostat, heater resistor under the passenger side dash, hoses, heater control knobs on the instrument panel and. He finally solved the problem by opening two nipples/plugs on each top side of the engine and bleeding the cooling system which was full of air. He got the car up to operating temperature, took off the radiator cap, ensured the radiator was full of coolant, and while the car was running, bubbles stopped coming out of the cooling system. The fluid never came out in a perfect stream (totally without bubbles) but when the heater started putting out "hot air" he just tightened the plugs and boom-- problem fixed. What do you think?

by - Verified Customer September 15, 2016

My last experience was average. They recommended that I do something to my car that was a lot more than what it would take to fix my car. They are nice.
