I only had a smog check but I'll certainly consider going back when I need a repair.

Professional, timely and great communication.

Wonderful and professional service.

Workmanship was excellent, completed as promised. Sean worked diligently with the after-market warranty people to get the most out of the coverage.

I had a major engine repair due to a blown head gasket and cracked cylinder head. The shop did an exhaustive search for fairly priced replacement parts and did an excellent job in getting the car running like new.

Message From the Shop

The automobiles we specialize in are among the most sophisticated computer controlled cars
on the planet. International Motors (IM) has all of the necessary factory tools and diagnostic computers
to communicate with these complex systems to properly and accurately discover the problems.
We invest tens-of-thousands of dollars a year in equipment, software and training to provide
the information you expect from a dealer with personal service you likely won't get.
Owned and operated by Sean Zarrinkouh, a Bosch Master Technician (BSCS),
with a staff of ASE/Bosch Master Certified Technicians who love what they do.
This passion, supported by continual training means that everything
that can be done will be done as quickly, correctly and as reasonably as possible.
For people who own older model cars that the dealers seem to not be interested in or
even trained to deal with, IM is like water in the desert.

Hi There
If SBC is the problem and has to be replaced, then the repair facility needs to use Mercedes Tester to finish the job.

For an accurate answer I would need to know the hi and low pressure of the a/c system. It seems that you have low refregerant in the system.
