Question Answered: 

I would agree with CharlesAutomotive's response. Make sure the belt is not too tight to start. If not, there could be several issues that lead to this same concern.

Question Answered: 

Hi, It could be both. I would recommend bringing the vehicle into a repair shop to have the vehicle properly diagnosed so you are not installing the incorrect part on the vehicle. Both the temperature sensor and a stuck thermostat can cause the same exact concern on the vehicle. Have a great day!

Good morning, We would not be able to provide an accurate estimate in this case due to the fact of all the components can be damaged when a vehicle is driven without oil. I would recommend bring the vehicle into the repair shop and have a technician properly diagnose the engine noise and where it is coming from within the engine. Valve train damage can often be repaired at a lower cost. Usually if there is lower end engine damage, it us usually more cost effective to replace the engine with a used unit. Thanks, Jeff Service Manager 303-691-9484 Thanks,

In regards to key being stuck in the lock, the best temporary repair we can suggest at this time to get you rolling is to spray some WD40 or carbide lubricant into the key hole. If the key will not release try wiggleing it back and forth with out forcing the key to bend. Feel free to tow the vehicle over and we can perform a diagnosis on the door lock. Thank you Alfredo Acevedo 303-691-9484

Question Answered: 

Hi Andrea, Your Porsche has performance style brakes where the brake compound is very soft. Those type of vehicles usually require new rotors, pads and sensors. There is a cheaper way by what’s called “pad slapping” but not recommended because it can stress other brake components. It all depends on how thick the rotors are. If the rotors are thick enough, you can replace the pads and sensor but if they are to thin it could cause some safety concerns. You will have to replace the sensor because when the light comes on it’s because the sensor made contact with the rotor and burned the tip of the sensor that’s the design one time use only. Hopefully this will help. Thanks, Jason
