Staff are cheerful and knowledgeable. Not the cheapest, but I can rely on them - I know they will successfully diagnose problems the first time, and they check details like wiper fluid and license plate light.

Questions Answered by Dana Meyer Auto Care
Car Is Overheating On Short Drives on 1999 Saturn SL2
You could have anything from a slow leak which has reduced your coolant level low enough to cause overheating to a bad thermostat all the way to a blown head gasket. Either more information is needed or an inspection. We have worked on Saturns since they came out...
Most Common Restriction Of Egr Vaccum ?
Most Common Egr Valve Failure ? on 1997 Nissan Maxima
I see no reason to assume the EGR system is the cause of dying while driving, especially if the EGR is restricted or not working! There must be more to the story. We have seen so many thing that might cause the problem that there would be no room to write them all. If you call we might be able to help you plan the next step.
Thanks,
Dana
Why 2002 Toyota Corolla Won't Start After A Hour Or So Continous Driving. on 2002 Toyota Corolla
Well, I'd have to ask if you mean; it does crank (spin the engine) when I turn the key and not start, or nothing happens when you turn the key? The answer leads to two different areas, the first being fuel or spark problems (like distributor), the second being battery or starter or even ignition switch. I have my guesses but would like more information.

145000 Mi.Car And Transmission Died. Replace Or Part Out? Bought 2 Yrs Ago@10k on 2002 Acura TL
Well, the easy part is to say any car is worth more running. A rebuilt/new transmission could likely be half the value of the car. (try www.kbb.com) If you're looking for a reason to bail, this is it, but you'd be lucky to get the other half of the value in your pocket. If you like the car, grit your teeth and fix it.
Squeaking Noise When A/C Is On. on 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Sounds like the fan clutch or compressor if the noise comes and goes with the A/C.

What Is The 120a Fuse For That In My Engine Compartment? on 1992 Infiniti Q45
That is the main fuse. If the car starts it should be Ok, but needs to be replaced if the cover is broken. I hope you really didn't replace all those parts before checking here... Nissans have problem fuel pump relays and a few other things that need special tools for diagnosis. Basic fix not easy to give this way, need to see it...
My Wipers, Heater And Windows Wont Work, What Is The Problem? on 1994 Mercury Tracer
Sorry to say, but without checking with a volt meter of some kind, you don't really know... There can be fuseable links by the battery that have blown or the 40 - 80 amp main fuse also can go. You have multipul circuits not working so it isn't one fuse. There are probably two fuse/relay boxes...
We're open Monday.
My Geo Track Is Not Starting
on 1993 Geo Tracker
Well, assuming there is fuel in the tank.... and what you are adding is something like starter fluid; you still don't have fuel getting to the engine. If you don't hear the fuel pump engage when you turn the key, start with fuse/relay/wire problem. If you hear the fuel pump trying to work when you turn the key, look for plugged fuel line or filter. Past that, my shop is in Albany...

Upon Start Up, Engine Runs Rough Until Driving 10 Minutes Or So. on 2001 Ford Focus
There are some vacuum lines that corode from oil and there are cold idle systems that should raise the idle until the engine systems warm up... sounds like we need more information to give a better answer...
1988 Buick Regal on 1990 Buick Regal
And... If you ask a specific question, all repair shops use some kind of manual which can aid in answering your question. Thanks for checking with RepairPal.
