They do verry good work.

by May 16, 2013

Everything I have had to them over there, they've done very good. They know their stuff. They're kind of expensive but compared to other places they are competitive. They are cheaper than the dealership, so I would give them a high score on that.

There could be many reasons for this condition. An EGR valve could be sticking at higher speeds, Trans lockup solenoid could be sticking or many other things.

There are many reasons for this to happen and without putting it on a scanner you won’t be able to figure it out. This problem could cause by an intake gasket leak, oxygen sensor, problem in electronic idle control to name a few. Way to expensive to be guessing parts and being wrong. If you would like us to look at it just call me and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out.

Larry

The idle air control is controller by the vehicle computer. If you replaced the valve and it still idles high it could be a computer problem or it could be drawing air in somewhere else causing the idle to be high. If you would like us to look at it just call me and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out for you.

Larry

Your manufacturer has a maintenance schedule that you should follow closely. At 60 K it is very possible that the manufacture has listed the spark plugs for replacement at this mileage depending if the original plugs were copper or plat. The word tune up is an old word that many service writers still use for plug replacement. You should have a maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual for your reference if not email me and I will send you one.
Larry

I wouldn’t wait on this one. Probably oil is getting on the exhaust from some kind of leak and burning off was it warms up. If you want us to check this out for you just call and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out.
Larry

Your turn signals and emergency flasher are two different circuits and work independently. You need a volt meter and a wiring diagram to figure this one out. Probably should leave it up to the pro’s. If you want us to check this out for you just call and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out.

Some vehicles feed the fog lights from the park light circuit and others from the headlight circuit. Without a rewire they won’t work with both of the above off, A rewire can be done if you want to spend the money. If you want us to check this out for you just call and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out.
Larry

If none of the turn signals work it could be a fuse. Consult you owner’s manual. It will tell you where all the fuses are. If it’s only one it could be a bulb, socket, ground or etc. If you want us to check this out for you just call and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out.

There could be many reasons for this condition. Lack of flow, t-stat, water pump and etc, a head gasket could be a cause but is unlikely. Usually head gaskets take time to overheat not with a short distance. There are HC test that can be done to check for head gaskets if that need to be done. I would check the others first. If you want us to check this out for you just call and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022) I am sure we can figure it out.

This problem would have to be diagnosed on a scanner where all internal sensors and valve body can be check. There are a lot of electronic parts in your transmission and many are pretty inexpensive to repair.

You are probably not getting power to the fuel pump. A bad ASD relay, fuel pump relay or power supply for the circuit could be the cause. You need a wiring diagram and DVM to diagnose the circuit.

Larry

You really need a computer scanner to check the engine temperature. I have seen way to many times the gauge in your dash mislead people. It is possible that the heater core is plugged, blend door is not working or control head is bad. Any one of these cane cause this condition. If you want us to check this out just call and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can diagnose it and give you the answer you need.
Larry

The first thing I would check is the coolant level. It could just be low. Other causes could be a restricted heater core, low pressure from a worn water pump. The head gasket should be the last thing to check. If you want us to check this out just call and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can diagnose it and give you the answer you need.
Larry

Make sure you have all the bolts are out. I’m pretty sure there is one bolt that is hidden. If you want us to check this out just call and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can diagnose it and give you the answer you need.

Could be either resistor or switch. Look at both or use a test light to check the circuit. If you would like us to look at it just call me and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out for you.

There are a couple of reason the key may not turn. First try to wiggle the steering wheel while you try to turn the key. Sometimes it just gets jammed. If that doesn’t work then you probably have something broken inside the column or the lock cylinder it self. If you would like us to look at it just call me and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out for you.

There could be a couple of reasons for this. Could be a delay timer, switch or relay. Will take a qualified tech and a wiring diagram to figure out. If you would like us to look at it just call me and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out for you.

Larry

There could be many reasons for this to be happening. The car would have to be hook up a diagnostic scanner so that all sensors can be monitored. Possible causes are endless but could be you are losing cam or crank sensor signal, module, coil, plug, computer, wires or about a dozen more. Without watching all sensors on the scanner it won’t be able to be correctly diagnosed. I wouldn’t wait because some of the causes could eventually leave you stranded. If you would like us to look at it just call me and schedule an appointment (313-562-7022). I am sure we can figure it out for you.

This can be a tricky repair if you’re not experienced in auto repair. The lines tend to be seized up and will break if not removed correctly. This will add hundreds of dollars to the repair.

You have another sensor that is bad. It may or may not be an emergency to address but you should get it in ASAP. If you wait and it’s a sensor that affects the air fuel ratio you could do damage to the engine or emission systems.

Larry
Does the entire engine need to be removed?
No. It's not a simple repair but will take 2.5 hours per Mitchell for a skilled trained professional with the proper tools and knowledge. Personally I wouldn't try this one myself at home and I have been an ASE certified master tech for 32 years. Without a hoist and special tools to disconnect the cooling lines it may be impossible.

transmission ,the place to fill it
The fluid gets pumped in from below with special equipment. Sorry you have to see a service center for this one.

I have 75 characters Question field.
Many manufacturers recommended changing the filter at most every 50k. Cost is about $65.00 + tax. We recommended to change it more often at 30k for 2 reasons. 1st Fuel today is not as pure as it was years ago and filters restrict quicker. The second is when fuel flow is restricted by a plugging filter it causes the fuel pump to over work and causes premature failure. The cost of a fuel pump is about $1000.00. Regular maintenance is always the cheaper voice. If we can help you please call 313-562-7022 or schedule an appointment on line at StansGarage.net. Larry

Labor rates vary from dealer to dealer and business to business. The amount of hours they bill for repairs needed are looked up in one of many estimating system. They are usually close to each other but can vary by 5% or so. Each business develops it own hourly rate based on operating cost and tech's wages. The service centers with higher skilled techs where things are fixed correctly the first time will always be higher do to higher operating cost. Don't get drawn into the lowest rate.
