He is honest and trustworthy and good at what he does.


Great service, honest and reasonable suggestion on what needs to be done. They will not suggest something that does not need to be done. They are trustworthy.


Good service, and they have low prices.


I have already recommend them to a bunch of people. They care about customers. I enjoy going there. I feel like I can trust them.


I have had good service from them, but this last visit they didn't do the work that was needed.

The price of the motor mounts are around $75 with the front right mount more expensive by like $20 dollars. The labor ranges from .6 up to 1 hr depending on the location of which mount. if you wanted to call us we can give you a more exact amount if you can tell me which mount. I can also shop around our different parts places to see if we can get a better price.

There is a TSB 06-19-12 that states the alternator diodes can also cause these codes. If there are no driveability concerns and it runs fine then it is possible the diodes in the alternator are causing the codes.

The light you are seeing is a low oil pressure light and not a oil level light. If the oil level is correct and the oil pressure light comes on then the chances are good that your engine can no longer build up enough oil pressure to properly open the valves causing it to not run correctly.

You can change the oil for troubleshooting purposes but it sounds like the engine is worn beyond repair. Its hard to tell without looking at it though.
