They got the job done in a timely fashion. I took it up there early in the morning, he called me and the line blew, they repaired it, in a 1989 Ford. Flushed the ac out and put Freon in it.

We bought our car from them 11 years ago. They gave us good service, they are friendly and their prices are very fair. We have only had to go to them for service one in the past 11 years, our car has over 200k miles and we have never had any problems with it.

The last time I went in was to have my brakes done, they weren't able to do my rotors. I went to another shop and they did the work at a cheaper price but they wanted to charge me another 50 dollars to do the rotors.

I think that the technician was helpful and answered all of my questions, but I am not sure that the manager knew what he was talking about.

He fixed the problem with my vehicle and had it done the following morning. Knowing I had four small children he fixed my vehicle. Charged me less than another place would charge me. They are fantastic.

Customer service was phenomenal. It is like a car dealership, the service level and it does not have a price tag on it. Office is clean, everyone is courteous, and they called in between problem solving to let me know the price and what it would be. I did an extensive update on my husbands truck. I got used tires to make the repairs last.

They just did my car and they did perfectly fine, I don't have any complaints.

This is indeed a low coolant warning. If you look on the dash, you should see a low coolant icon flashing as the vehicle beeps. It doesn't do it when the car is warmed up because the coolant system has expanded/thermostat has opened, possibly filling the reservoir enough to prevent the warning from triggering. With all that being said, the car could be full of coolant and just have a faulty level sensor. Hope this helps!

Good afternoon,

To replace both valve covers on your 99 Lincoln Continental, the cost would be 290 dollars. This includes all parts and labor, before tax. We also recommend you change your oil any time you do valve cover gaskets, which would be an additional 35$. If you would like to set up an appointment with us, please call us at 864-877-5655. Hope this helps!

Hi Dusty,

According to Alldata, you must remove the serpentine belt, unbolt the tensioner pulley from the face of the engine, and then you should have easy access to the alternator bolts. Hope this helps!

Hello Eldermcd,

Thank you for your question. This is most likely driveline related, either in the rear end, axles, or possibly driveshaft. It is of course difficult to say with any certainty what it could be without hearing the noise... I have even seen a vehicle before that made a similar noise, and it turned out the owner's friend had zip tied a bolt to the driveshaft as a prank! Is there any chance you could come see us so we can have a look for you?

Hello Andrea,

Thanks for checking with us! It sounds like you may be having a severe misfire condition. There are many variables in play here so I can't say for sure without being able to have a look at the car, but I can tell you that this might be a much simpler and cheaper fix than some would lead you to believe. We pride ourselves here on our honesty and drive for customer satisfaction, and would be more than happy to have a look at it for you to see exactly what is going on and the best way to fix it. It can be hard to find a good shop that you feel comfortable with, but if you give us a chance we will take care of you!

Hello Janette,

Thanks for checking with us on your issue. With today's Hybrid vehicles, there is a lot more electrical components in play. It is unfortunately very difficult to pinpoint this issue without being able to run some tests on the vehicle and find out exactly what is going on. This could very well be something as simple as a bad connector somewhere, or it could be a much larger issue. Is there any way you could come see us so we can try to figure this out for you?

Hello Mr. Mahaffey,

Thank you for reaching out to us. It sounds like you may have a thermostat that is stuck. The thermostat will open and close based on the temperature of the vehicle via a mechanical heatspring. Over time, this spring wears out or becomes fouled with debris in the cooling system and ceases to close or open. When stuck open, a lot of times it will prevent the vehicle from reaching operating temperature which can be almost as detrimental to the life of your engine as an overheat condition. The thermostat can also without warning unstick itself, and stick in the other direction, i.e. from fully open to fully closed, which would then overheat the engine very rapidly. This is a serious driveability concern and should be fixed as soon as possible.

The air blowing from only the defrost vents is most likely an issue related to what is called a blend door assembly. This assembly will proportion the air correctly to provide the desired temperature as well as direct the airflow to the selected channels. Hope this helps!

Hello marcjames,

First, I would like to thank you for reaching out to us! Diagnosing misfires can be very tricky, because the ignition system is made up of several different components that all must work together perfectly, every time. Best case scenario you just need new plugs and coils, worst case scenario the engine has lost compression to the point that the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder is not firing properly. The best way to handle this is to have the issue looked at by a certified technician, who will then be able to tell you exactly what is going on and avoid your money being wasted on ineffectual repairs. Measure twice, cut once! We would be more than happy to take a look at it for you and figure it out. The Siennas are great vehicles and I am confident we can get you fixed up in no time!

If the sensor is not working properly, a car may stall or not start. The engine will turn over, but won't fire up. Sometimes a failing crankshaft position sensor may cause intermittent issues such as long cranking or stalling in certain conditions, for example, when the engine is hot, or in wet weather/ But as previous answer stated that is most likely not your issue and is most likely an evap issue which would need to be checked by a certified shop with qualified technicians
