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.

Auto is about ten quarts from empty, 4 if you just replaced the pan gasket. Remember to use the right fluid. Mercon V is probably required.

Question Answered: 

A generic transmission code, engine voltage and fluid pressures in the transmission is tough. Check you fluid right now. It should red in color and smell okay. Burned toast and dark brown is very bad. GL

Lots of things can set that high idle code. You can start with cleaning the throttlebody to replacing the Electronic Throttle Control Actuator. You need to take it to a shop and have them diagnose it.
