Everyone was extremely courteous and made me feel welcomed.


I haven't had the car fixed yet, but Danny fit me in and spent a lot of time diagnosing the problems. He took a lot of time to explain.


Good Comm about diagnosis and the Fix. Above and beyond provision of loaner car.


Pick-up is running better than when I bought it. The repair shop is wonderful to work with.


They were friendly, kind and professional.

Message From the Shop

Looking for an honest mechanic? The experience at Danny's is like looking out of a glass bottom boat and being able to see the entire ocean floor. Most people like going to the Auto Repair Garage about as much as going to the dentist. At Danny's our clear communication through texting , phone and a custom customer friendly application proves everything we say. That's right, we put it in writing and in pictures. This makes you feel like the visit to the dentist was to a massage parlor instead.

Questions Answered by Danny's Fitzway Car Clinic

The 2006 BMW transmission is electronic and can have many causes for not operating correctly. Much more information is needed to answer your question. I would advise a qualified technician looks at it and performs diagnostics. A specialty scanner would be needed to communicate with the transmission control module. If the symptom is exactly the same after the transmission replacement , then the diagnosis may have been incorrect or the repair may have not been performed correctly.

The most likely cause is that if the 2003 Chevrolet Silverado is equipped with a door module that it is not programmed to the the truck. If this is the case the programming is done with a pass thru programming tool and GM programming SPS software. Otherwise you could change the module from the old door over and it should work.

The most likely cause is a failed throttle body or a that the system needs cleaned and adaptive memory reset plus the throttle retrained. Either way specialty tools are needed to correctly repair this issue. Fairly low mileage for this issue to be a failed part. My guess is that something went wrong electrically like the battery may have been replaced or disconnected for some reason.

Hydrocarbons are simply raw or UN-burned fuel. Simply perform diagnostics on any item that could cause the fuel not to burn correctly. Start by checking for incorrectly installed or cracked spark plug. If they HC was good before the tune up then recheck the tune up work. Good Luck.

Hello, Remove the door panel to diagnose what is happening. Most of the time it is a window regulator or motor that causes this on 2007 Jeep Liberty. Be very careful when removing the panel or you could do great damage to the panel. Might be better to bring in to the shop for repairs.

Hello, The rubbing noise on the left in your Cadillac Eldorado is possibly from wheel bearing or from irregular tire wear. A simple test drive will determine what testing if any is needed.
