Questions Answered by E & J Auto Service
Nothing is dripping.
There are many possible causes for odors from your vehicle's climate control system. The first thing to check is if the cabin air filter has been changed at proper intervals and to make sure you continue to change the filter on a regular scheduled basis. This filter catches pollen, dust, and other particulate debris that is in the air as it circulates through the climate control system. If the filter has been allowed to become over-saturated with debris, mold, mildew and other nasty stuff can form and spread throughout the duct-work of the entire system. If this has happened, then a service will need to be performed to clean the internal duct work of the climate control system. Obviously, there can be other external causes for your odor, such as something under the hood of the vehicle causing the odor and the odor transferring to the interior of the vehicle. Our shop would be happy to diagnose your vehicle to determine the exact cause of the odor and recommend the correct repair.

One of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a vehicle is the way the interior of the vehicle feels to you. Since all people have different body shapes and sizes, what is comfortable for one person may not be comfortable for another. However, once you have purchased a vehicle and then later found that the seats are not comfortable to you, the seats of a vehicle cannot be changed without extraordinary measures, especially since they are designed to work with seatbelts, air bags and other supplemental restraint system safety devices of the vehicle. At this point, you will most likely have to experiment with different types of bolsters, pillows, etc. However, please use caution when placing extra cushions on your seat that they do not interfere with the proper deployment of any seat mounted or side impact air bags during a collision.

I hear this noise everyday.
This is Joe from E&J Auto Service. I am able to help you determine what is causing the abnormal noise from your Mazda3. The first step in figuring out what is causing the noise is to have my ASE certified technicians test drive the vehicle to listen for the noise. After that, we would raise your car on a hoist and inspect all the components of your vehicle to determine the exact source of the noise. After we know exactly which of the hundreds of possible faulty parts needs attention, we will provide you with an exact quote of what it would cost to perform the necessary repair. If you choose to have us to perform the repair, we will provide you with a 24 month/24,000 mile warranty on that repair. Call me at 773-725-9414, and we'll set up a time to do this for you.

There are many possibilities as to why your Jeep will not accelerate. First we would need to determine if the engine is revving up when you press the accelerator. Once we know that, we can then narrow down the possibilities of components that need to be tested.

Please call me at 773-725-9414 and I can help you arrange getting your vehicle to our shop to figure out exactly what you need.

There are multiple electronic modules, switches and sensors that dictate to the transmission what gear the vehicle should be in and when. All of these items would need to be tested to confirm the diagnosis you've been given. A second opinion is definitely recommended and we can help you with that.
