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: 

First, check the oil, then the battery connections. Who said the battery was okay? Check for voltage using a volt meter, then check all fuses and let me know...Good luck.

Question Answered: 

Check your fuses first. If the fuses are okay you'll need to bring it in to a shop. You may not like the answer but there are too many variables. From the switch to the pump itself and all the wiring in between may take us 2 hours to trace and test. A good rule of thumb is the more expensive the vehicle purchase the higher the maintenance and repair costs. Why do you think there are so many high end cars for sale at 1/3 their original price?

Question Answered: 

Your voltage is too low. How's the battery? What's the belt look like? Check the battery with a multimeter and make sure the charging system is working. If you can't figure it out check with Adrian at Milt's. He's the BMW guy around here. (707)643-7548

Question Answered: 

It's a fuse or the mirror switch itself.. The fuse is 10amp and located in the passenger compartment on the driver's side behind the kick panel. If they are good you'll have to check the switch. The clock uses the dome fuse located in the engine compartment on the left side. Good luck

Question Answered: 

High NOx can be oxygen sensors, old cats, maybe they didn't get them hot enough to be efficient. When was the last time the vehicle was tuned up?

Question Answered: 

With the key off just replace it. Make sure the car gets up to temperature and that the fan now works.

Question Answered: 

Too loose and belt slips causing noise because the pulley can't get a good grip on the pulleys. Too tight and the belt will destroy the bearing inside the accessory that is turning. What is your specific problem? Judging by the age of your Toyota, it's due for some major services. Have you been keeping up on them?

Question Answered: 

Don't glue it! You can buy another knob from the dealer or go to an aftermarket BMW site like Bavarian Autosport and buy another one.

Question Answered: 

About $245.00 machining the rotors and using original pads from Sumitomo. Very quiet and stops great. Call Jon at Dublin Auto Repair (925)828-0243. Tell him you saw this on RepairPal and talked with me, Hal. Good luck.

Question Answered: 

You probably have a bad ground. Happens over bumps right? Check your battery first to make sure both terminals are clean and tight.
