This is my first experience at the shop. I will return when future work on the Ford Ranger is needed.

by - Verified Customer May 31, 2017

Bud Adams, now Autoworks, thank you. My first phone call, to my first greeting riding with the tow. Difficult experience having my car stolen, found and then navigating through repairs. Thank you all for your care, professionalism and kindness. I hope I don't have to see you for a while, but knowing you're there, when needed and seem to appreciate your new customers as much as you do for your regulars. Beep beep.

I had my transmission replaced. Becky was very helpful talking to the insurance companies for me and did whatever she could to make sure I got the lowest price possible. Everything was explained thoroughly. I got many updates always knew what was going on. Overall, great experience.

My car is old with a lot of mileage and a great engine. But, it's time to start saving for a younger used car with lower miles. The shop team willingly informs me of the repairs that will keep me safe on the road and when it's time to let my baby go for a newer used car model. I'm glad to be a part of the family of Adam's clients.

My husband and I are pleased

by - Verified Customer April 12, 2017

My initial visit was for a diagnostic check of my vehicle because it was failing smog tests. I was getting a couple of error codes which seem to be fixed by the replacement of the purge valve. However, paying $150 dollars for a diagnostic check I expected some kind of printout as to what was going on with my vehicle. They did fix the main problem that I reported having but I am still failing smog tests and among other things the tester told me that my car is getting a communication error when connecting to the state's computer and that could possible be my vehicles computer. I would have thought a diagnostic check would have caught that.

Back interior of car had dirt marks in it as if men had been working in it. If possible try and keep interior clean when working on vehicle. Other than that the vehicle feels fine. Husband noticed tire pressure went down as of last weekend. We are monitoring it in case there is any tire issues. Very happy otherwise.

The only thing that bothered me was that I had an appointment and they didn't call me with the recommended repairs until 2 1/2 hours later, so I had to wait another 2 1/2 hours. A long day when there isn't much to do near the repair shop.

Misdiagnosis: I brought my 1993 Ford Ranger in for over-heating, and suggested to the service writer and mechanic I suspect the Thermostat is bad, because one of the radiator hoses was cool to the touch, thermostat wasn't opening and closing. Service writer and Mechanic suggested to test cooling system to assure it was the thermostat and not something else. I agreed to have the system tested. After the system was tested, their results: no leaks other than a small leak at the pressure cap, exhaust tested good, (which in my mind means head gasket is good) and mechanic claims thermostat was working properly, but truck was still overheating on test drive. Mechanics conclusion - I must have a cracked head gasket due to the age 1993 Ford Ranger and mileage 175,600 miles. Mechanic suggested to replace the Engine, he said he can find an engine for this model easily.....I told him there was no-way I was going to replace engine for such an old truck. At the end of the day I told him to Replace the Thermostat anyway, because I was sure that was the problem!.......Next day thermostat was changed, and lo and behold, that was the fix, my truck no longer over-heats. After enduring all the stress of hearing my head gasket is cracked and I need to replace my engine, but in my mind I was thinking I would need to buy a new vehicle (something I couldn't afford at this time). After the misdiagnosed test and the thermostat changed on my request, I ended up paying over 200 dollars , for something I already knew what the fix was in the first place......... Thank goodness it was just the thermostat. The Mechanic apologized and Staff was friendly, but I will not be coming back!

Reply from Adams Autoworx – by BudAdamsAuto January 12, 2017

Linda,

I understand your stress, please let me help you understand the process of diagnosis and repair.

Your vehicle was presented with no coolant in it, and testing was inconclusive. We gave you the opportunity to change the thermostat without knowing if there would be additional work required up to replacement of the engine which would have cost more than the vehicle was worth.

I am glad to know you vehicle is running well and wish to offer you a
FREE OIL CHANGE and MINOR SERVICE for your troubles.

Blessings...bill adams

Questions Answered by Adams Autoworx
Whenever it gets dirty. Honda dealers differ, but most professional agree that 30-50,000 miles for the initial drain, then inspect every oil change after that. Your owners manual will give a specification, but we have noticed in the field, that an inexpensive transmission service every couple of years will add significant life to the car.
Wiggle the key in the ignition switch. IF the lights flicker or come on, you have found your problem. Odds are, you will need a shop that speaks BMW to get to the bottom of your issue. Great car, but extremely high maintenance and repair costs.

It depends on your tolerance for pain. Changing a clutch requires removal of the transmission, then replace the clutch components, then reinstall the transmission. If you are working on your back at home with the car on jacks, you will have the devil of a time. Allow a couple of days if you are on your back. Acknowledge you may not get the transmission back in properly and have to tow the car to a shop. This is one of the repairs that I would never recommend doing at home unless I had a lift or a couple of very understand and STRONG friends to help me stab the transmission back into the vehicle.
Recommend you pressure test the vehicle with a full cooling system to determine the location of the leak. On the right side, you have the heater hoses, heater control valve. Make sure the connections are not leaking or that the heater is not leaking back out through the firewall at the heater hose inlet.

I agree with Pushrod. Recommend you have an experienced technician figure this out. Make sure you share all of the information about the prior failures. It is this type of information that will help the shop get your car fixed quicker and for less money.

Start with checking the fluid. If it is low or burnt in smell, orange in color, have the fluid serviced and the transmission inspected.

In most cases, more than the car is worth. Call Edwardo at Fremont Foreign Auto for a good quote. He is the best shop in your area.

This can be caused by the window regulator binding up, worn or broken hardware inside the door and or a weak window motor. Recommend you take it to a local shop that can handle the job properly.
