Ari is great!

by - Verified Customer June 06, 2017

Ari and his crew excel at customer service and support. He's up front about what needs to be done and what can wait. I'm confident in their abilities and their straight forward approach. If he can save you money without sacrificing quality, he will. His shop is successful because they do the work right the first time and are fair with their customers. Honesty and integrity.

This is the first auto repair outfit I've ever done business with that didn't treat me like I was stupid and take me for a sucker. And prices are fair!

I was treated with respect, kindness, thoughtfulness and given the attention I needed to get my van the work it needed as quickly as possible, my van drives like a dream now after having had power steering work, brake work, tires & alignment work completed. I couldn't be happier :-)

First time using Sci-Tech; was treated well and had thorough explanations throughout the process. Repairs were done in a timely manner and the fee seemed reasonable to me. I am very pleased and plan to return when the need arises.

by - Verified Customer May 18, 2017

They explained the options thoroughly, quoted a price for such and completed the repair quickly. 5 Stars Guys for sure.

Ari is straight-forward, no nonsense, and a very trustworthy individual. I always know exactly what is going on with my car and the options available. Also, a friend I know received a very good price from the Grandview location on a repair for his car and Ari helped him determine his options.

by - Verified Customer December 26, 2013

They always fit me in for an appointment as soon as possible. They are all very nice and knowledgable and very helpful. They always explain what needs to be done on my car and what is most important to fix and what can wait since we are on a tight budget..

They did a good job.

by - Verified Customer December 12, 2013

I have been a Sci Tech customer for years. One time when a part for my car was no longer available, the mechanics rebuilt the part for me at a very reasonable charge. It had something to do with a cord that went to the light on my side view mirror. They are always timely and personable and fair.

I love this shop - they are knowledgeable and honest. TWICE Ari (the owner?) has advised me NOT to make certain repairs, because my cost-to-benefit ratio would be too high. "I can do the work," he said, "but I don't think it will be worth it to you in the long run." That's why I will always recommend this shop.

Questions Answered by Sci-Tech Automotive
They do not come on nor light up when I pr...
Seat heaters on GM cars are controlled by the body control module using a sophisticated Controller Area Network (CAN). If portion of the CAN network goes down, some or all of the components controlled by the network may not work. Usually this event will set a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) which may or may not turn on the Check Engine Light (CEL). If the CEL is on, or even if it is not, we can scan the CAN network looking for DTC's. Once we know where the problem lies, we can diagnose the problem and clear the code to restore functionality.
Is this a recall that happens with several...
There are no recalls for a check engine light that I am aware of. A check engine light simply means there is a problem. If you get a fever, you don't know if you have a simple cold or if you have a serious illness. To discover the answer to that question, you go to your doctor. A check engine light is like that, except that you go to your mechanic. With only 50,000 on the car, it is likely a simple problem, but you won't know if you don't check.

With the work that was just done, I would scan the computer for codes. This will give you a diagnostic starting point. If the problem began after the work, I would look for un-metered air. (a.k.a. vacuum leak)
There is a technical service bulletin that addresses oil consumption during turbo engagement. It mentions an updated pcv separator, however it could be a faulty turbo. Only a complete diagnosis could tell for sure.
Truck has been running like crap lately. N...
The check engine light flashes when the engine is misfiring severely enough to damage the catalytic converter. This requires immediate service. I see from the information contained in your question that you have already had some ignition system work performed. That work needs to be rechecked. I would also look at fuel pressure. The gas spitting back at you is probably an unrelated problem. The tank vent is likely plugged with debris from a faulty vapor canister.
A high idle frequently indicates a vacuum leak. If the vehicle has vacuum assisted power brakes and the engine idles even faster when the brakes are applied, then a vacuum leak inside the power booster is likely.

There are a variety of things that can cause the symptoms you describe. One common problem that can be intermittent and temperature sensitive is a leaking intake gasket. You need professional diagnosis to pinpoint the cause of the problems.

P0420 indicates the catalytic converter is performing below a predetermined threshold. The performance is measured by the rear oxygen sensor. If the exhaust manifold is allowing air to enter the exhaust system, that excess air can mess with the measurements made by the oxygen sensor. So to answer your question directly, yes, it is possible than a manifold leak could cause a false code P0420. However, it is not likely. There is also an oxygen sensor in front of the converter. If there was excess air in the exhaust, I would expect the front 02 sensor to see the extra oxygen and set a code for exhaust too lean. If that is not happening, then excess oxygen is probably not present and therefore, not responsible for your code P0420.

There are several possible causes of the symptom you describe. The most likely is that the blower controller, aka blower resister has failed. Late model Chrysler products are known for a pattern failure of the blower controller melting due to high current flow. If this happens, replace the controller and the blower motor. The blower motor is drawing too much current which melts the controller.

If the compressor is not functioning the air conditioner will blow warm. If the system is low on refrigerant, the compressor won't turn on. Either way, no cold air. Only a detailed inspection by a qualified technician will tell for sure. Of course, if the compressor is not coming on because the system is low on refrigerant, the question is "where did the refrigerant go?" If you have a system leak, that will have to be fixed first.
