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: 

Remove the screws at the bottom of the door and at the handle. Gently pull away and lift up on the panel. BMW panels have a lip at the top that rests in the groove at the top of the door. Take your time but you may still have to buy a couple of the plastic clips.

Question Answered: 

You need a flush machine to really change an automatic transmission's fluid. You can't get the fluid out of the torque converter which is half the total volume. You need a flush machine that hooks into the trtans cooler lines and exchanges the fluid quart for quart. A drian and refill is like finding a gallon of sour milk in the frig and emtpying half of it and filling up with fresh milk. It's still sour.

If the fluid was dark brown that's the clutch material. You'll most likely need a rebuilt transmission for $3900.00.

About $800.00 just for the bags. You may also need the module.

Question Answered: 

It's the PCM or power control module. Clear the code again and if it comes back you'll need to bring it to a shop and have them test the computer.
