Quality work at a fair price

by - Verified Customer March 07, 2017

Got an oil change and tire rotation. After a couple days of her complaining that the engine sounded louder and it smelled bad I popped the hood to find that the oil cap on the valve cover was missing. I was able to locate the cap in the engine compartment but unsure how much dirt got in or oil got out. The car was also still in the bay 2 hours after they called and said it was ready.

The guys always are polite, and explain about any needed repairs. Of course I always ask, so that may be why.

The only problem I have ever had was with a previous service, this last September. My car was acting totally bizarre, and it was the alternator. They were ready to charge me $500+ for the repairs when I remembered I had had the alternator replaced the year before. Turns out is was totally covered, both parts and labor. It just seemed to me that someone should have noticed in my car's service history that it was just recently replaced. I know they don't have the time to look over everything in a car's history, but that really bugged me.

I feel I paid for unnecessary work. Two weeks after work was completed on my car, I had to have the motor replaced. The garage that completed the work was surprised that someone had not noticed the problem prior. I paid almost 2K for work that I am not sure was actually completed.

My first visit was a few months ago. I am a new resident of Kentucky looking for a reliable and fair automotive shop to keep my car running well. I had several key points about my car to be addressed. I really did not get any feed back. I was there for a routine oil change and at that time let my cars needs be known. No one from this shop got back to me with estimates as they said they would.

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.

If you are losing coolant and having to add it daily it is normal for the temp gauge to slowly go up. It may have a coolant leak or a blown head gasket. A simple Pressure Test to the cooling system will indicate if you have a leak or not. Combustion test will tell you if you have a blown head gasket or not. Without proper testing its hard to say what the problem is.

A flashing CEL (Check Engine Light) is something serious to be concerned about. A flashing CEL indicates that your vehicle’s engine is misfiring, or worse. From the information you have given it would be very hard to say exactly what is wrong with the vehicle. Guessing and throwing parts at a problem can get very expensive. I would recommend taking it to a repair shop and paying for diagnostic. It could be a number of things at this point. What type of codes is the check engine light giving you? What type of plugs did you install ? Does the vehicle have compression?
