I owe my entire satisfaction to the engine replacement in my Jeep to Nic Hess, the service manager. He did everything possible to accommodate me and to ensure that my Jeep was running like new before it was returned to me. In spite of the distance from my home, I will continue to take my cars to wherever Nic is managing the service to my vehicles. He not only knows cars backward and forward but he has an incredible knack and genuine interest in working with people and getting the best from his team and satisfying his customers.

Questions Answered by West Kearny Mesa 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
