Question Answered: Horn keeps blowing how do i fix or stop
May 16, 2017, 11:49 AM
For a temporary fix, you can remove the horn relay. Eventually you would need to get the problem looked at to determine what is broken and what will be needed to fix it. We can do that here of course. If you will email our shop, I can try to send you diagram of where the horn relay is located.
Question Answered: vibration at higher speeds then major wobble when slowing down or going under 30
April 25, 2017, 07:45 AM
Sounds like this one potentially has more than one problem. Having the tires rotated and/or balanced may help with the high-speed wobble. I suggest having a reputable shop check it out. Please give us a call at 281.855.2211 if you'd like to bring it in. Thanks!
Question Answered: My 2014 Nissan Maxima won't accelerate but rpm will go high. Only 52000 m help!
April 11, 2017, 11:33 AM
Oops, sorry, I read 5200 miles, not 52k miles. Pushrod has an appropriate question re: transmission - standard? automatic? CVT? Not getting above 40 and the rpms going high likely indicates transmission problem. Take it to a competent shop that can diagnose the problem. We are here if you need us.
Question Answered: Why is a.c. controls making loud noise
March 01, 2017, 07:52 AM
There really isn't enough information with this question to answer it. If the a/c sometimes goes on and off by itself, there may be an electrical problem or a problem with the a/c control head. This needs diagnosis by a competent shop. Cliff's Car Tech will be happy to do this for you. Hopefully you can provide some more information as to under what conditions the noise and intermittent operation of the a/c occurs. Thanks!

Question Answered: I've changed the 02 sensor and the check engine lights is still on.... Now what?
February 20, 2017, 09:18 AM
Question, did you clear the check engine light once the repair was completed? It may take quite a few ignition cycles before the PCM reads that system again and clears the light on its own ....... If you've already done this, and/or the check engine light returns, Unfortunately, no, if changing out the sensor did not resolve the code, it does need a diagnosis.
Question Answered: Bucks when hot outside.
February 17, 2017, 11:40 AM
That's actually pretty difficult to answer as at this point we don't know if its an engine performance problem or a transmission problem. Best answer is to bring it in for diagnosis ... too many possibilities .....
Question Answered: water pump woes
October 04, 2016, 03:48 PM
There are really only two reasons that a water pump should fail in only 8000 miles - either a factory defect on the water pump itself (which should be covered under warranty) or technician error on the installation of the water pump (which also should be covered under warranty). An engine oil leak should not cause the water pump to fail ......
Question Answered: Vehicle wont shift out of park. Been using bypass to shift. Is there a recall

Question Answered: why is my front defroster not working?
August 23, 2016, 07:19 AM
Is the front defroster blowing from the proper vents, the ones up on the dash? If not, there is likely a problem with the blend or mode door operation. If it is blowing from the proper vents, my next question, how is the a/c cooling? If its not cooling properly, the system will also not remove enough humidity from the air to defog the windshield. I recommend testing / diagnosing the a/c system to determine the exact cause of the problem. Any competent shop should be able to do this for you, including ours, Cliff's Car Tech.
