I am a partner at EDGE Motorworks in Dublin, CA, Milt's Service Garage in Vallejo, CA and Contra Costa Auto Service in Concord, CA. All my ASE Certified facilities are staffed with ASE Master Technicians that perform general services and repairs on all makes and models. Our 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 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.

You have a bad connection on one of the speed sensors. Is your traction control light on? Hopefully the computer saves the code or even a visual inpsection may reveal a wiring problem that can be repaired. Good luck and Happy Holidays.
Question Answered: cost estimate of replacing front and rear engine mounts
December 21, 2010, 03:10 PM
You should probably replace all the mounts since two have failed. As long as you take it easy you won't do any more damage then what's already been done. Call for a quote...Happy Holidays

You need to connect your car to a diagnostic computer to see if the car's computer is seeing the airflow past the MAF which is usually 4 grams a sec at ldle. Buy a can MAF cleaner and try that before you throw a $300 part only ot be wrong. Let Adrian pull the code Monday to make sure. Good luck.

You have a short in there somewhere. You need to have this looked at by a shop before your car burns to the ground. Smoking/electrical concerns are a serious matter.

Flush fluid first. You have no filter. When I say flush you can suck the old fluid out of the reservoir and refill work the steering wheel back and worth with the vehicle running. Should take about four times before you will have changed over most of the fluid. Remember to use the correct fluid. Call the shop if you're unsure. Good luck and happy holidays.

First, what's the fluid look like? It IS NOT lifetime fluid. No such thing... Clogged fliter causes erratic shifting as well.
Question Answered: Battery warning light and brake warning light on.

You should check to make sure your alternator is charging. I'd expect to see 13.85 volts while idling. Check connections from the alternator and fuses as well.

You have a vacuum leak. Check the engine over for yourself right now looking for any cracked or disconnected vacuum lines. Any leaks past the Mass Air Flow sensor (after the air cleaner) can set this code. If you can't find anything then stop by the shop and we'll take a look for you at NO charge. Good luck.

Stop in and let us pull the code. These newer vehicles have dozens of sensors of which anyone of them could be telling you something. We routinely pull codes at NO charge for our customers. Good luck.
