One problem is better but not fully resolved. Other problems corrected and service done made the vehicle operate much better.

Very professional
10/03/18
I was well taken care of in a prompt and professional manner
09/26/18
I feel as though there may have been some communication problems. The leak at the transmission cooling line, I was told, was minor & not a big deal, 'barely dripping'. I drove 11 miles, pulled into my driveway & if that's a minor leak that's 'barely dripping' I might suggest someone get their eyes checked. They also left a piece of the airflow under the seat of my van. I'm glad I saw it before I drove out of the parking lot.

Brought my car in for warranty work, and a separate issue. The Toyota dealership stated we had a serious problem but Bill checked it out and all it was a defected clamp. We were very relieved with that. Thanks

07/26/18
Excellent service with staff, everything was perfect, only the price was higher for the repair

I had an oil change and filter, had my air conditioner serviced. My check engine light came on a week after service, i had the code check, and the wrong oil has been used...i was given a print out. My air conditioner doesn't work any better now, then before service. I plan to contact the repair shop i went to, to give them the chance to correct the oil, after that, i will be looking for a new service shop for my vehicles.

Questions Answered by West El Cajon Automotive & Transmission
Power Seats Are Malfunctioning And Now Don't Move Forward And Back. on 2004 Ford Expedition
There is no spoecific know failure for these seats, you could have a motor problem, a short or something as simple as a blown fuse. It will require some testing to diagnosis if you are not familiar with the system you may want to bring the vehicle to us or some as qualified as us to diagnosis the system properly.
My Check Engine Light Came On. The Code Says That Temp Is Below Thermostat Level on 2001 Buick LeSabre
Normally we would check to see what temp the thermostat is opening at it is more likly a thermostat that has failed and is stuck open or is opening to soon, with out proper test equipment to check the temp sensor for the PCM it is hard to tell if the sensor is having a problem.
Check Engine Light Sometimes Doesn't Come On. Why Doesn't Car Start Without It? on 1994 Ford Explorer
Sounds Like a relay that is starting to fail, Recommend getting it diagnosed properly to prevent replacing good componets. Sounds like the vehicle failed functional because the check engine light did not come on when they check to see if it works during the functional parts of the test. Getting the no start relay problem fixed should cure your smog failure for functional propblem
Put Truck In Gear Dies And Will Not Restart, Also Rev Up Engine And Will Die
on 1990 Chevrolet S10
I agree, the Knock sensor will not be the cause of this problem, It can be several conditions causing this problem, I would recommend to have the vehicle diagnosed by a facility that is qualified. Possible causes range from fuel, to ignition to a TCC Problem
Trans Axle Has A Slow Leak How Much Will It Cost To Fix? on 1999 Volkswagen Passat
I also would suggest getting the vehicle in to have it diagnosis by a Transmission expert
