They were very helpful with getting a tow truck to pick up our vehicle. Also a fair priced one. Guys at the counter knew their stuff and did tell us cost could be more if other problems showed up. They completed the job in 24 hrs. We are happy with the results.

I came in for a smog inspection. The tech knew that the test would not be valid if the battery was disconnected recently. He failed to advise me of that and another test that could have been performed. THEY STILL CHARGE ME!!

Questions Answered by West Escondido 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
