Took my van to Westport Springdale. Told me it was motor blower that was going to be $1000, Honrstly don't even think he looked at it. Didn't trust the techs opinion. After talking to my dad that has knowledge of cars told me he thought it was resistor. Took it to brownsboro Springdale and Jordan took care of me and checked it out... It ended up being only the motor blower resistor only which is s much cheaper fix. Will not steer away from brownsboro Springdale again. Jordan was awesome and trustworthy.

The work was quick, but the person outside was little rude. He didnt explain me what work was done, but I had to ask him exactly what was done. And he was very short on his explanation. His name was Aaron if I am not wrong. Maybe he was just busy, but I would have appreciated if he would have taken couple extra min to explain the repair done. Work was done well though. Thank you.

Went in first for fuel pump warranty repair. Got it back the day I left for vacation and it stalled out again. In the meantime the radiator busted. The car needed the fuel filter replaced ( thought that should have been looked at before it was released to me the first time. Radiator seems to be doing fine. Everything for now is fine. It's an old car with lots of miles. I think they did okay, just not outstanding.

I had an issue diagnosed at a dealership. I brought the car to Springdale for a second opinion and they provided an alternate solution that was preferable and much cheaper. I have appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of Chad and Jordan and have been a customer for several years.

by - Verified Customer March 06, 2017

I had a strong gas/oil smell in the car that was making me sick. I took it to Oxmoor Ford and they said (a) they didn't smell anything and (b) they didn't see anything wrong with the car. Jordan saw right away that I had a PUT/transfer case issue. Once fixed, the gas/oil smell went away. Jordan was awesome to deal with! Very happy customer!

Brought my car in to have a squeaking noise fixed. The bill was $1500. Took my car home still notice the noise and had a leak oil leak under my car that I never had before. Took it back, $1000 to fix something else. I will be passing along my experience to everyone that I know.

by - Verified Customer February 02, 2017

First time went to this shop as my car is hybrid. It's hard to find shops to work on hybrid vehicles outside of dealers. Price was reasonable, friendly personnel to deal with. The courtesy drive to take me home and pick me up when car done was great service. I plan to go back here.

Questions Answered by Springdale Automotive
was told some kind of senor
Sounds like it could be an issue with an idle air control motor or possibly camshaft position sensor. If it was running fine at idle before the tune up, I'd suspect the idle air control valve first, especially with the colder days we've had. That can cause it to act up more.
The car shut itself off without any warnin...
If that Mountaineer has a 4.0L V6, then yes, you most likely have a timing chain issue. When the vehicle gets that far out of time it will severely effect performance. There's also a chance you could have a transmission issue on top of it, but it would be hard to tell until the engine was running correctly. Strongly recommend finding a good shop that knows that 4.0L SOHC motor and the 5R55 transmission very well.
when I try starting on morning I must hold...
Check you're idle air control valve. The engine uses this to allow air into the motor when your foot is off the throttle (throttle body 100% closed). If the IAC is stuck shut, no air gets in, so it can't start until you press the throttle. This valve can be clogged up with carbon and sometimes a simple cleaning will get it running. Often times the valve needs to be replaced, however.
It's turning over but won't fire up
Fuel, fire, compression and timing are the 4 items any engine needs to start. Keep in mind that if you have a bad crankshaft and/or camshaft position sensor the computer does not know when to inject fuel or fire the spark, so it won't try.
It's also possible that your new fuel pump is not getting any power. Might double check all your fuses. The security system also disables the fuel pump if it believes the car is being stolen, so it seems like a bad fuel pump, but if there is a security light flashing while trying to start, that issue would have to be cured first.
Hello everyone and thanks for your time. F...
It sounds like you're having an issue with the idle air control motor. All the symptoms match up with that kind of an issue. Sometimes it happens simply because there is carbon built up on the valve and it needs to be cleaned. Other times the valve needs to be replaced. Either way, it is also possible that there is an idle re-learn procedure that may need to be done to enable the car to idle correctly.
Good luck. ;-)
When I take off my van shifts just fine un...
Unfortunately, the Dodge Caravan and the Chrysler Town & Country were notorious for transmission failures. I strongly recommend having it checked out at a reputable transmission shop as soon as possible. If there's is any chance of saving it, the sooner they get it the better. I'm sure Repair Pal has a shop they can refer you to.
Tire monitor gauge will not shut off.<br>P...
Tire Pressure Monitor Sensors (TPMS) are very sensitive, if the tire pressure is off 3-5 lbs it can set the tire light off. Some cars even if the spare is low it will keep the tire light on. Make sure all tires even the spare are at the proper inflation level (found on the sticker on the inside of the door) Nitrogen is 3x bigger molecules then air molecules, nitrogen does not fluctuate with weather temperature like air does. Nitrogen will keep your tires inflated longer and keep that tire light off longer. Nitrogen helps the most on vehicles with chrome rims, there is no moisture in nitrogen like there is air so your less likely to see your chome start to chip and flake away.
I was coming home from a friends an hr aw...
Based on your description of how you lost heat after 10 minutes of driving is an indication that the vehicle was loosing coolant. When the level gets low the vehicle can no longer circulate coolant through the heater core, this causes you to lose heat. My suspicion is that the vehicle suffered a fairly serious leak while you were driving (since you had not seen a leak previously) and once the coolant level got low, everything else you're describing is consistent with an overheating cycle. The smoke coming from the exhaust is a strong indication that the head gaskets have blow. Depending on how long you drove after this point and how hot the engine got, the cylinder walls could also have suffered damage which will require a new or rebuilt engine to correct the problem fully. Most likely it is that steam in the system that caused the melted coolant outlet housing. When a vehicle is overheated to that extreme all components should be suspect and inspected; i.e.- Radiator, heater core, hoses, etc.
The AC has been working without any proble...
It sounds like you have temperature blend door that is not moving. This door is inside the HVAC box under the dash and it directs air over the heater core/evaporator core in different ratios to give you the temperature you're wanting. The most common failure is the blend door actuator, but it can also be the temperature control switch or the blend door itself. The first step should be to isolate which of these components has failed so that you are not replacing parts needlessly. The temperature blend door actuator and temperature blend door both involve removing the dash board to gain access and will be labor intensive jobs. The temperature control switch is much easier to get to but the part will be more expensive. There is not likely going to be a "cheap" way to repair this problem, unfortunately.
I filled it up with gas and it started mis...
If you are finding oil in the PCM I would start by checking the oil pressure sending unit to see if it is leaking oil through the sensor and connector into the wiring harness. If it is, it is possible that the oil is wicking through the harness to reach the PCM. I have seen this in a past a couple of times. I've also seen a fuel rail pressure sensor do the same thing and it filled the PCM with fuel. Kinda scary.
You will need to cure this issue before you can begin properly diagnosing the running issues. This could involve replacing the PCM and wiring harness. I would definitely recommend getting some professional advice, first hand, on this one before going too far.
