Love Interstate - honest, caring and helpful !
A little pricey but the air is cold now.
There are other things wrong with my van that came along with the repairs made by the shop.
The guys were great to work with while we figured out the mystery issue(s) going on with our Acura. They were patient and available to talk through all the options. They rode around with me multiple times in the car to help identify what could be wrong. Thank you for not thinking I'm crazy after all!
Very friendly and courteous.
runs so much better. will entertain bringing my personal vehicle for service
Inspection was done.
Outstanding job by the team...very honest and upfront and don't at all feel pressured.
this is a good honest bunch of folks.
The customer service was excellent !! Joe went above and beyond to listen to me, so that he had a clear understanding of my needs. I will continue to use them for all of my future repair needs.
Good people good service
They are friendly, thorough, and they are honest. I actually just today recommend interstate auto to my son-in- law.
21 yr old Audi. A lot of repair shop would not touch this car. It can be a challenge just to find parts for this car.
I was very impressed because they caught something that needed to be repaired that the dealership service department hadn't caught. They walked me through the repair, how long I could wait to get it fixed, pricing etc. and let me move forward on my own time (no sales pressure). They were able to fix it for a fair price and very quickly.
Great. I trust them especially being a women l know they will not rip me off.

Questions Answered by Interstate Auto Care
I Have A 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 L That Shuts Off After Heating Up on 1999 Dodge Ram 1500
The fact that the vehicle is running hot, needs to be addressed first. How far are you from Interstate Auto Care and are you able to discuss this over the telephone. We are certain to be of assistance, but we do not recommend the continued driving of this vehicle in this condition, as you may cause severe engine damage if you continue to drive it.

I would be glad to discuss some possibilities regarding cause and solution. Is there a good number to reach out to you tomorrow morning?

Why Is My Car In Limp Mode on 2006 BMW 525i
“Limp in” mode is your vehicle’s attempt to limit your driving to limping into a repair center for service.

Your vehicke’s powertrain management system is detecting an issue that it feels needs to be addressed urgently.

Therefore, I recommend having the vehicle’s issue diagnosed ASAP.

We are open weekdays 7 to 6 and Saturdays 8 to 5. We would be happy to assist in resolving your problem if you wish.

What Antifreeze Do I Need What Color? on 1997 Pontiac Bonneville
Your original coolant/antifreeze, otherwise called DexCool, would have been colored red. Replacement coolants which are typically "universal" may come in a few different colors. Have you contacted the mechanic to ask him/her if the coolant that was installed is compatible with your vehicle?
Make A Loud Thump Noise, Stay In Second Gear, And The Check Engine Light Come On on 2008 Kia Spectra
Good morning c4344,

Intermittent vehicle problems can be tricky to deal with and will require the vehicle to exhibit whatever the reported symptoms are, so that we can trace down the source of the issue.

With that said, we have been in business for nearly 20 years and specialize in these very situations. I would suggest considering possibly leaving the vehicle with us for a few days, if necessary, should the vehicle need to be driven in order to duplicate your complaint.
Please feel free to reach out to us at Interstate Auto Care- (248)307-1200

There are a number of issues with your vehicle that may be causing this, without them involving a fuel tank sending unit. Please give us a call at your earliest convenience so that we may discuss how we can resolve your issue today.

My Radiator Fan Won't Spin And Car Is Smoking on 2003 Ford Taurus
Good morning DSCONYERS,

With the engine cold, please check to make sure that your radiator and/or your expansion tank has enough coolant in it. I would not attempt driving the vehicle with the radiator fan not functioning, particularly if there is little to no coolant left in the engine. You may overheat the engine and not even see that on your coolant temperature gauge, under this condition.

You may reach us at (248)307-1200 and we can arrange to have it towed in and diagnosed as early as this morning.

Looking forward to meeting you soon,

How Do I Find Where Rain Water Is Entering My Hatch Area ? on 2010 Volkswagen GTI
Good afternoon Roxy,

Some obvious areas to check are the body component gaps and seals. Beyond that, I would get it to a professional to perform further testing and diagnosis.

Please feel free to reach out to us at Interstate Auto Care, should you have any further questions or wish to bring the vehicle in.

What Is The Difference In Generation 1 And Generation 2 Rear Knuckles on 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
Hi Kris,
Why are you looking to switch out the knuckles, if all you need to replace is the rear springs and struts?
I would not try to replace the knuckle unless there's a good reason for it, particularly since it is not the exact match.
You could be opening up Pandora's box by doing so. Proceed with caution, please.

Catalytic Converter Stolen Mechanic Welled A Straight Pipe .Should My Be Loud on 2006 Buick Rendezvous
Hi Carm123,

You should know that whomever removed your catalytic converter and installed a bypass pipe is committing a felony. No self-respecting technician or repair facility should be engaging in such practice and is certainly not doing you any favors.

Please feel free to visit Interstate Auto Care for a free inspection and quote to correct this situation.
