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: 

BAR would only get involved if you had a signed estimate for a certain amount and they were holding your vehicle hostage for a completely different amount. Your closer to $800-900 to replace the three actuators. Call Milt's and talk with Adrian (707)643-7548

Question Answered: 

It's most likely the truck or a door switch that has failed. Need to have it looked at to determine which one.

Question Answered: 

Aren't they fixed calipers? All you need to do is knock the pin out and remove the silencer. Press the piston back in and load the new pads. Make sure to lubricate the end the make contact with the caliper itself.

Need to get fuel pressure gauge on the line and check fuel pressure and volume. I've seen pumps not hold pressure and make it difficult to start.

Question Answered: 

Are there any warning lights on when this happens? What does the transmission fluid look like?

Question Answered: 

This is an easy one. Should be under the engine cover but you probably need torx bits. You have a cabin filter as well that should be changed.

You mean when using a jack?

Question Answered: 

You need a DPFE or MAF. Check to make sure you have no vacuum leaks or clean the MAF but usually either of these two components. Good luck.

Question Answered: 

Who said they're not adjusted correctly? As they heat up while your running the valvetrain expands. If the clearances too tight now your valves won't fully seat and you'll burn them needing an expensive valve job costing over $2,400.00. My Dublin shop could perform the valve adjustment for $360.00 plus the gaskets.

How many miles? A flush might be easier and less expensive unless your pan gasket is already leaking...
