I am always pleased with the services that are made to our vehicles. I feel I am given an honest estimate of repairs needed and in the order of importance when they need to be completed.

Will definitely let my friends and family know what great service we received. Will be back for sure!

Very nice and clean shop.

by - Verified Customer April 26, 2017

I was referred by a client of theirs whom I trust. They were very helpful and concerned about my safety; they took my car right away, gave me a loaner, made the repairs and had my car ready in a couple days. I will be going back for regular maintenance work on my car.

by - Verified Customer April 25, 2017

These gentlemen run a first rate operation. Courteous, knowledgeable, and very efficient.

by - Verified Customer April 23, 2017

They did work we did not ask for and charged us for parts not labor. The work completed was not completed correctly. Unfortunately, they are the only import repair shop in the area.

by - Verified Customer April 19, 2017

I was totally satisfied. Great customer service!

I still have problems with the car-when it starts! No heat! The engine over heated on the way to Merrill. I am a caregiver to a man that is 96 years old and needed a dependable car. This car is a 3 month old car that broke down. I paid $4795.00 for a car that ran 3 months! I got taken for a ride and not a good one.

by - Verified Customer November 27, 2016

Friendly, reasonable, great people.

by - Verified Customer November 20, 2016

Always on time and done well!

by - Verified Customer November 20, 2016

by - Verified Customer November 14, 2016

We always get excellent service and value at Auto Jockey's. Unlike other shops, they get the work done when they say they will!

by - Verified Customer November 06, 2016

I take my car there to be detailed. When I got it back it looked like it was brand new. Will be back in 6 months, after the winter.

They have good service, I've been going there for many years.

by - Verified Customer July 29, 2014

They seem pretty confident about getting cars in on time, but that was not our experience. We had scheduled an appointment and they were off by two days.

by June 18, 2014

They are high priced and a normal person could not afford them. This was the first and only time I went to this shop.

Reply from Auto Jockeys – by autojockey August 15, 2014

We're sorry you feel this way. According to the RepairPal Estimator, we charged a fair price for the service. Today's vehicles can be very complex, and sometimes a task as seemingly simple as spark plugs can be made difficult and time consuming by the design of the modern engines. Keep in mind that we are standing behind that work for 2 years or 24,000 miles, as well. Thank you.

Question Answered by Auto Jockeys
p1744 says its the torque converter clutch...
If the code resets without driving the vehicle, check the resistance of the TCC solenoid, it should be 12.5 - 19.0 ohms. If the solenoid resistance is way out of range, the solenoid may be bad.

If the code only sets back after driving, monitor the TCC solenoid command and the engine RPM to see if the torque converter actually locks up when the PCM commands it to. If the torque converter is not locking up, the problem will be internal to the transmission.
This can be treated the same as a code P0741. This code can either indicate a fault with the TCC solenoid circuit electrically or it can indicate that the solenoid didn’t function mechanically. If the code resets without having to drive the vehicle, the problem is electrical. If the code only resets after the vehicle has been driven, the problem is mechanical. It is very rare for this code to be the result of an electrical circuit fault. This transmission has a high failure rate and in most cases the transmission is the cause of the code P1744.
