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: 

Why coils? The coils in your truck are $100/ea and you have two. The wire set and plugs are $70.00 plus one hour to install everything would cost you $180.00 for the basic tune up.

Question Answered: 

We're too far unless you are in the Vallejo area very soon. I would take it back to the oil change establishment and have them take a look at it. The oil leak may be coming from the filter gasket or even the oil drain plug. If you lose enough oil you'll be buying an engine.

Question Answered: 

Most likely you should startwith Air Fuel Sensor. Twice the cost of the oxygen sensors but they do twice as much. The P0158 is for the rear oxygen sensor and may not be faulty. A scanner would be able to determine the overall condition.

If you mean bolting the caliper to the bracket itself being stripped then you may need new calipers. Stop by the milt's today and have them look at it. Right now you've thrown every part at this Jeep and it hasn;t solved the problem. Call Adrian at (707)643-7548

Question Answered: 

Vehicle needs to be scanned to determine if there are any fault codes. There are two separate temp sensors on the heat exchanger and the cabin temp sensor. Also need to check HAVOC control module. No tech bulletins regarding HVAC. Milt's is close by. Call Adrian for an appointment.

Question Answered: 

It sounds like the repair that was just completed had a defect. Did you go back the facility yet? What was the damage? Be specific, we work BMWs 30% of the time at Milt's.

Question Answered: 

Your rotors have brake material built on them which causes the caliper to pulse and that makes your steering wheel shake. Your Volvo's rotor are not serviceable meaning they can't be machined but can easily be replaced. Your brake job is only $400ish.

There is a puller tool but you gently pry up on the coil using the valve cover to work it loose.
