I have never had a bad experience at this garage. They have always taken the time to explain everything to me and do not try to pressure me into doing more then is required. They also give me a heads up about things that will be coming due in the future which allows me time to save up the money for the repairs.

Questions Answered by Downing Street Garage
i bought new battery and cables for my tru...
The next thing I would look at is the amount of current the starter is drawing. If the starter is not functioning properly, the engine will turn over slowly. Also test for excessive resistance on the battery cables. Many times a loose or corroded connection can cause slow starter operation. Once you get the engine turning over normally, then focus on the other causes of the engine not being able to start.
hi i have a mighty max truck, i changed th...
Without a doubt noises are the hardest things we are asked to find and fix. There can be many things that cause noises. If the noise started after installing bigger tires, first put the old tires back on and see if the noise disappears. If it does, the offset of the rims or tire diameter can be the cause. If the noise is still there, rule out the tire changeover as the cause.
Stop by and we'll go for a ride and make a suggestion. That is the easiest way to help figure it out.
Textbook sound:Knocking while idling, knoc...
A knocking noise from the engine that increases with engine speed may be a connecting rod bearing. If that is the case, major engine repair is needed. If the engine has many miles, repair may not be cost effective.
I had my car washed today and since then m...
If your car is a Subaru, the wash attendant probably flipped the rocker switch located on the top of the steering column, between the steering wheel and the dash. If your car is not a Subaru, it is possible the car wash got the lights wet, and when you turned on the lights the fuse blew. Have the fuse for the park lights inspected. If the park lamp lens is cracked, that is how the water got the bulb and socket wet.
When i tried to replace my serpentine bel...
If the only thing the belt drives is the AC, no it won't hurt anything. If the bracken is cracked, I would suggest getting it replaced. You may be able to get a good used part instead of buying a new one.
where is the fuel pump switch
This truck does not have a fuel pump switch. The fuel pump is activated by a relay under the hood. Fords also have a trip switch located in the back of the car that tuns off the fuel pump in the event of a rear end collision.
I have 2008 Subaru Impreza and my intermit...
The wiper park switch is inside the wiper motor. Swap the wiper motor with one that you know works. If the problem goes away, the motor is bad. It could also be that the wiper arm on the side that had the loose not is positioned incorrectly and not allowing the motor to reach the park position. Remove that arm completely and try the wipers again. If it works, leave the key on, turn off the wipers to allow them to park, then reinstall the arm.
took my jeep in for an emission test and t...
High CO readings means it is burning too much gasoline. Emissions diagnosis and repairs are easy for a qualified repair shop. Check the emissions repair booklet that the emissions station should have given you for a reputable shop near you. Look for a shop that has a 95 or better score. That means they can fix your problem. Make sure the shop will get your car retested after they make the repair. That is your assurance they can fix the problem.
My car will not even crank. I just put in...
If everything worked before replacing the battery and alternator, that's the place to start. If the starter just clicks, that would indicate a poor connection at the battery. Remove the battery cables, clean the terminals with a wire brush, baking soda and hot water. Then reattach and try it again. On GM battery cable ends, you must peel back the rubber insulation covering the metal part of the cable end to clean.
My heater isn't blowing hot air, wht d...
The first thing to do is check the fuse. Look in your owners manual for the location. Testing the heater switch may require removal or partial dis assembly of the dash. The relay is located behind the left side of the dash.
Our pulley went bad and we drove it until ...
Unfortunately without looking at the problem it is hard to quote an accurate price. We have seen this same thing happen with other cars and have been able to make a repair without replacing the camshaft. Every situation is different. I would recommend getting a second opinion.
my jeep stards shaking real bad when i dri...
The most likely cause is a bad steering stabilizer. Look at the steering linkage for something that looks like a shock absorber. When this gets weak it allows the steering to shake at 40mph.

If you are in or near Denver, there are several Saab specialty repair shops, some that sell used parts. A call to them may help you find an owners manual. Check the internet with the heading Saab Repair and make some calls.
Or bring your car by Downing Street Garage at 401 Downing Street, Denver and ask for Doug or Chris. We could help you figure out how things work.

If you have the anti-theft chipped key, make sure you are using the correct key. Recoding a key is not a do it yourself job. Find a reputable repair shop of locksmith that has the proper equipment to verify key is communication with theft module.
how much should new spark plugs on a 99 al...
You can use the Repair Pal Estimator to get an idea of that cost. The price will vary from one shop to the next. The thing to ask when you do have that work done is whether they install the same spark plug that the original manufacturer uses. Some shops buy the cheapest parts available, and that may not be the best for your car. An Oldsmobile Alero probably uses AC spark plugs from the factory.
How do I reattach the mirror to the stud? ...
Provided the mirror retainer and stud are not broken, place the mirror under warm water to soften the plastic, then press the mirror onto the ball stud using the palm of your hand. It can take quite a bit of pressure but it works. Also be sure the pivots are pressed in as well.
When I was driving home on the highway at ...
It may be hard to tell without looking at the car but the timing belt may have slipped a tooth or 2. Regardless of what may be the cause I* would have it looked at sooner rather than later.
I have allready replaced my fuel pump and ...
The first thing to do is see if you are losing spark or fuel when it dies and won't restart. If it's losing spark, replace the TFI module. Very common of these Fords.

The good news is that your car is not that difficult to diagnose and repair. Give a good shop in your neighborhood a call. Expect to pay them to perform some tests and figure out what is needed.

The door jamb switch is usually located on the part of the car that the door hinge is mounted on. Some cars have that switch incorporated in the latch assembly, in which case the door will need to be disassembled to repair.
