Pleasant Hill, CA

I own Dublin Auto Repair in Dublin, CA and Milt's Service Garage in Vallejo, CA. Both ASE Certified facilities have ASE Master Technicians that perform general repairs on all makes and models. For piece of mind you have a 12 month/12K mile warranty on all repairs we complete. We also have a racing arm known MServiceGarage. We service those individuals that track/autocross their cars. The knoowledge we've gained is yours when you commission us to build or consult on your race car. Remember that second place is the first loser...(just kidding) My philosophy is very simple: Provide our customers with the best solution to the problem presented! We diagnose the failure and determine what type of repair is needed to get that vehicle back on the road. We provide one year warranties, towing, shuttle service and no interest financing. Maintenance costs far less than a repair so we perform a free courtesy inspection on every vehicle we see so our customers can remain informed.

Question Answered: 

Low oil pressure. Check oil level NOW! If level is okay then your main bearings are probably worn and you need to start using thicker oil from now on. You need to start changing oil at the 3,500 interval and not waiting so long...

If the oil leaking is damaging expensive suspension components like the control arm bushings then you need to make the repairs. The longer you wait the more expensive it will be. Call Contra Costa Auto Service for a quote
