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: 

We replace several clutches but not many manual transmissions. There are several vendors that sell used or even remanufactured units that will save you some money. Milt's in Vallejo is my closest store to you but I could come over and look at it if you want. Good luck and Happy Holidays.

Is it smoke or steam? Does it smell sweet? Hater cores on these aren;t too bad but still over $500.00. Do you have to add coolant? Give Dublin Auto a call and tell Jon what's happening. Good luck and Happy HOlidays.

You have a bad connection on one of the speed sensors. Is your traction control light on? Hopefully the computer saves the code or even a visual inpsection may reveal a wiring problem that can be repaired. Good luck and Happy Holidays.

You should probably replace all the mounts since two have failed. As long as you take it easy you won't do any more damage then what's already been done. Call for a quote...Happy Holidays

You need to connect your car to a diagnostic computer to see if the car's computer is seeing the airflow past the MAF which is usually 4 grams a sec at ldle. Buy a can MAF cleaner and try that before you throw a $300 part only ot be wrong. Let Adrian pull the code Monday to make sure. Good luck.

You have a short in there somewhere. You need to have this looked at by a shop before your car burns to the ground. Smoking/electrical concerns are a serious matter.

Question Answered: 

Flush fluid first. You have no filter. When I say flush you can suck the old fluid out of the reservoir and refill work the steering wheel back and worth with the vehicle running. Should take about four times before you will have changed over most of the fluid. Remember to use the correct fluid. Call the shop if you're unsure. Good luck and happy holidays.

Question Answered: 

First, what's the fluid look like? It IS NOT lifetime fluid. No such thing... Clogged fliter causes erratic shifting as well.

Question Answered: 

You should check to make sure your alternator is charging. I'd expect to see 13.85 volts while idling. Check connections from the alternator and fuses as well.
