Went in for an oil change and they did an overall check on the vehicle and found that the differential pinion was leaking. Because the vehicle is still covered under Toyota warranty, I was able to get it fixed at Toyota at no cost thank you

Service was great!
Verified Customer
I wish they could have found and fixed the problem the first time! They first charged a 'diagnostic fee' just to even look at the car, then did not even find the main problem until after a couple days and $$$ in other, more expensive work. They finally fixed it after several more days in the shop. The engine now runs and idles unevenly, and the steering wheel now squeaks; both are new problems since the work was done. When I paid for the work I said my husband and I were not happy and no previous mechanic had ever charged a separate diagnostic fee. The guy told me to have my husband call him.

Excellent work and communication through every step of the process! Thank you!

Love the people, but the place is getting pricey. If you don't have their coupons you pay the same or more than the dealer.

Questions Answered by Advanced Auto
Control Arm Broken And Is Under A Recall Is Any Of The Other Damages Covered By on 2003 Hyundai Elantra
Hi Dennis1981,

The best way to get an accurate answer is to contact your preferred Hyundai dealer. Since Hyundai is in control of what is covered and what is not covered, a Hyundai dealer is the best one to ask. With that being said, if you don't get the satisfaction you want at the dealer level, it would be a good idea to speak to someone in Customer Satisfaction at Hyundai of America.
My Rear Brake Lights Are Working But My Center Mounted Light Is Not. I Replaced on 2008 Toyota Avalon
If the suggestions that stevieray1 suggested are more than you want to tackle, the best solution is to find a qualified, local repair shop to help you perform the electrical testing that may be required.
Diagnose A Random Dashboard Electric Failure. on 2005 Volvo XC70
Hi EverettAndrews,

It sounds like there is some type of electrical issue that is causing all of these problems...possibly internal problems with the multi-function switch (directional arm assembly), a hardware or software issue with the BCM (Body Control Module) or some other electrical issue. I quickly checked for TSBs (Technical Service Bulletins) on this issue from Volvo. There are several TSBs related to electrical issues that sound similar but not exact. I would recommend having a shop that you trust perform the required diagnostic testing so that you can avoid guessing and spending money on incorrect parts.

Why Do I Smell Antifreeze Inside And Out Of My Van? on 2010 Chrysler Town & Country
Hi kmwmac,

There are many reasons this could happen. If there are no obvious signs of leaks on the ground, the best option would be to bring the van to a shop you trust and have them perform some diagnostic testing on the coolant system. Sometimes by just having the van on a lift and knowing the common issues to look for may be enough to figure it out. If the cause is not obvious at that point, the shop may need to perform tests such as a coolant system pressure test, combustion gas test, coolant flow test, etc.

We have seen many problems with the coolant tubes on these vans rotting out and starting as a slow leak but becoming a gushing leak very quickly if the tube rots all the way through...this is especially common on the vans that have rear heat.

Since problems with the coolant system can go from minor to makor very quickly and can get quite costly to repair once they become major, I would recommend having a professional look at it sooner rather than later.

Sorry Newbie Here And Posted This Originally As A Reply. My Mil Light Is On.
on 2004 Audi TT Quattro
Hi KatMcG,

Is there any reason that you think the MIL is related to a loose gas cap, or were you just checking the basics? The MIL will illuminate for thousands of different reasons...the only way to really know why it is on is to use a diagnostic computer to check the code(s) and then perform the diagnostic test(s) required for the code(s) that are turning the MIL on. If you are not a trained diagnostic technician, your best bet is to bring the car to a will obviously cost you some money, but in the long run, it will save you lots of headaches, money spent on replacing parts that may not need to be replaced, and will save you from possibly causing damage due to driving the vehicle with worn out/failed components.

How Many O2 Sensors Are Needed In A 2001 Focus on 2001 Ford Focus
Hi Carleeta,

I 100% agree with Greg's Orange Auto! Your best option is to have it properly diagnosed by a quality repair shop. They will be able to determine if the problem is caused by 1 or more of the Oxygen sensors and/or if it is in the oxygen sensor circuit. Anything in the circuit could be causing the could be a sensor, one of the electrical connectors, a wire, or even the software or hardware in the computer...the only way to tell for sure is to perform the required diagnostic tests. Using a professional shop will save you the headaches of wasting time and money guessing at the correct fix.
I Just Recently Noticed When I'm Driving 0 30 Mph My Car Will Wobble on 2007 Cadillac STS
Hi Miked14,

There are many reasons this could happen. We've had many complaints from customers recently about shakes and vibrations. A lot of the problems were due to snow build up inside the wheels which makes them temporarily out of balance and causing a vibration or shake. Check for snow build-up in the wheels as a first step. If that isn't the problem, it would be best to have a qualified repair shop inspect it. With all of the damage to the roads, there's a good chance that there may be damage to one or more of the wheels, and/or damage to suspension components. Since there is a chance that the issue may be safety related, I would strongly recommend having a quality repair shop check it out for you.

My 4 Wd Light Comes On And Locks In Untill Restart.Changed Sel Swt And 4wd Act.?
on 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe
The 4WD selector switch and the 4WD actuator are both common failure issues on this vehicle. The best solution is to have it properly diagnosed by a professional technician...proper diagnostics does cost money, however, it will ensure a proper diagnosis and will often save money and frustration by having the proper repair performed the first time.
Do I Need An Alternator Or Battery? on 1997 Ford Crown Victoria
Hi Davepsycho,

Ford products often have complicated alternators that are very finicky...the regulators in the alternator are common for failing and they often test good under certain conditions and only fail under specific conditions, so they can be a little tricky to diagnose...they are often integrated with the PCM (yours may not be due to the age...I'd have to do some research) point is that sometimes they require more in-depth testing than the basic tests that the parts store offers. As far as starting with a battery replacement, that probably isn't the best idea, because if the alternator is indeed faulty, it will most likely damage the new battery. The best solution would be to have a qualified shop/technician do some testing to identify the actual cause of the problem, so you don't waste money changing parts that may or may not be bad.

Note: There is a chance that it may not be a battery and/or an alternator...sometimes it could be a wiring issue (due to mice or other causes) or it could be a PCM...proper diagnostic testing by a qualified technician/shop is the best next step...
What Does It Cost To Replace Power Steering Pump

on 2008 Saturn Outlook
If you look towards the top of the webpage, there is a link called "Estimator"...if you enter your vehicle information (Year, Make, Model), it will provide you with a price range. The range for that repair is $364-490. We've compared many of our actual estimates to the estimates that the site provides and we've found it's usually very accurate...there is no way to get a 100% accurate quote without having the vehicle on the lift at a shop, but the price range on this site is the best that we have found. (Note: Keep in mind that there are things that can change the price once the vehicle gets to a shop...things like rust, misdiagnosed problem, etc. A top notch shop will always advise you of any changes in their estimate as soon as an issue is arises.)

What are the symptoms? Have you already had a professional shop diagnose your concern? Do you know for sure the power steering pump needs to be replaced?
