It was the easiest maintenance experience ever. Plus they identified an oil leak that was still under warranty. Great service.

The work they did was explained thoroughly and completed in a timely fashion. No sticker shock and they even came to pick up my car.

They are always very thorough and do a great job.

Every time I have been to TLC Auto Shop I have been treated extremely well! Ken Suter is a gentleman and a man of personal integrity and will take excellent care of you and your car. He will always make it right! He is concerned about your safety and the condition of your car. If any problems come up, and I have had some, he always fixes it and does so in a very acceptable way. He's great! I recommend him to everyone and carry his cards around to give out when someone needs it. He's that good!

I appreciate having my car picked up and returned without having to leave wherever I am. This is the second time I've used this shop. Only one thing; I don't think the windshield washer fluid was checked because when I used it, the low fluid indicator light came on.

Questions Answered by TLC Auto Shop

If the check engine light is on, you would need to pursue that 1st - an inefficiently running engine can cause shaking.

If no warning light or trouble codes, it could be an engine mount, harmonic balancer, or accessory/belt/pulley problem throwing the engine off balance
My a/c isnot blowing cold...i. Checked to ...
You would need to determine if the AC clutch is engaging. If not, trace the electrical circuit to find out why. If so, you would need to know the high & low side system pressures. Any abnormality in system pressures should lead to the root problem. If pressure are ok, the problem may be in the dash - test the temp & mode door operations
My car vibrates very bad when i start it n...
A P1624 means that the transmission computer has asked the engine computer to turn on the check engine light. You would need to access the transmission computer trouble codes to find the specific trouble code(s) that is causing the problem (P1624 is a generic code - it just saying , "hey, there's a problem here", without pointing to the specific reason. A transmission computer scan should tell you more.)
This happens about every 3rd to 4th time i...
You would need to know what the system high & low side pressures are reading when this happens. It could simply be low on refrigerant, or it could have component failure - the pressure readings should lead the way to the problem.
If the pressure readings are ok while the problem is occurring, the car would need a scan for HVAC trouble codes.
If pressures are ok, & no trouble codes, check into the temperature door operation in the dash

As long as it has strong cranking (doesn't have to be jump started), you can assume that the battery has enough voltage. A vehicle needs fuel, spark, proper timing, and an rpm signal to the computer in order to start.
Since your problem is only 1st start in the morning, I would recommend checking for fuel 1st. You should have fuel pressure & volume at the test port the instant you turn the key on, even before it starts cranking. If you're missing pressure and/or volume, suspect leakdown, fuel pump, or relay,
If you have fuel pressure & volume, then move on to check spark, timing, rpm signal, computer data until you find the culprit.

If you're talking about the engine cooling, it could likely be a cooling fan problem.

If you're talking about the AC, then it could be a condenser, condenser fan, or a weak compressor. If the fan is working, then high & low side pressure readings need to be taken in order to isolate the problem.
I don't think that Toyota published an "official" interval for the 1995 3.0L. I would use the 90k interval recommended for their later models. If you have the 2.4L, it does not have a timing belt
It was suggested that I should pull the ba...
It sound like you're talking about the system monitors showing incomplete, and this is probably normal, unless you have driven the truck for several weeks with no change. The monitors are self tests that the computer does after a check engine light is reset/cleared. There are usually 8 monitors total, & about 4 or 5 of them will run almost instantly, The last1, 2, or 3 can take dozens or even hundreds of miles of driving, several different trips, and sometimes fuel gauge within a certain range to complete. This can take hours, sometimes days, but should not take weeks.
