Tim Goodreau

Acworth, GA

My name is Tim,I own a business called T&M Mobile Mechanics in Acworth Ga. I have been working on cars/trucks since I was a kid and been doing it professionally for 25 years. I got into this business because I truly beleave that people need a brake from the high costs of these "big garages and tow trucks" and paying outrageous parts and labor prices as well.I do my best work where ever the customer needs me,where ever it is convenient for them, not me.

Question Asked: 

Just rebuilt the engine in the vehicle,and now the code reader is showing P0102 which is Mass Air Flow Sensor. My question is.... Will a bad Mass Air Flow Sensor cause this vehicle not to start? This is the only code coming up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Question Asked: 

This vehicle is blowing DENSE smoke from both the tail pipe as well as between cylinders 2and 3. At the spark plugs. The customer just had a new head gasket work done several months ago. There is oil all over the valve cover. It's my belief that when they did this work, the head was not checked for warpage or cracks. Any other ideas on this would be great. Yes, I am a mechanic, but I don't think it's wrong to ask for help if I'm not sure.if anyone has a problem with this, PLEASE DO NOT REPLY!!
